Cemex launches platform to operate cement plants remotely

Cemex has launched a remote control system to operate 14 cement plants from its central location in Monterrey, Mexico. The product is designed with the intention of allowing operators take corrective action with local staff to minimise deviations from safety, environmental, efficiency and product quality targets. It is already said to have reduced operational incidents by 50%.

Called Centro de Control Cemento (C3), the platform has helped replicate best practices, extend shared knowledge and expertise as well as achieve an overall improvement in operating efficiency and reliability.

C3’s uninterrupted monitoring aims to provide information about each stage of the production process and the performance of equipment installed in the cement plants.

The device also tracks live data for the operation of 25 kilns and 86 grinding mills as well as monitor a plant in Colombia and another one in the United States.

Edgar Angeles, operations vice president, said: “Cemex applied the most modern technology to develop a system that marks a unique milestone in today’s cement industry. The C3 is an excellent tool to promote safety in our operations and make our processes more efficient.”
