CEMEX Cement Plant Project Scoping
CEMEX is one of the world’s major cement producers, based in Mexico, with operations throughout the world.
CEMEX wanted to scope out use of advanced technology at their plants, identifying specific projects likely to have high returns. The potential applications covered all aspects of production, including mining of the stone; crushing operations; logistics planning for raw materials, intermediate transport, inventory, and finished products; and plant operations such as kiln monitoring. Among their numerous existing plants, technology already in use varied from modern distributed control systems to minimal manual controls.
Several weeks of studies resulted in identification of numerous, specific projects that would have high return.
CEMEX moved forward to build some of these applications, and many were quite successful.
