Our Client

The Grand Beton company, at the beginning of 2019, is one of the largest manufacturers of concrete, building mixtures and materials.

They turned to Automation Spirit Alliance with a request to combine all batching plants into a centralized automated control system according to European Standards.

Problems faced by the client

  • Equipment from different manufacturers.
  • There was no integrated automated dispatch center (ADC).
  • High error in the preparation of mixtures (frequent errors in dosing materials).
  • Insufficient information and non-consolidated reporting.
  • Incorrect and incomplete information about the course of production processes.

Tasks set by the client

In the phase of active growth of the company Grand Beton over the course of several years, production facilities were added, a technopark was formed, and equipment was purchased. As a result, plants were equipped with various Soft and Hardware (up to controllers) from Meka, Simem, Stetter, etc.
