The Task

Cemex is a multinational building materials company that manufactures and distributes building materials in over 50 countries. Local SCADA was unable to help coordinate product delivery to multiple sites. Modifying SCADA would be costly and complex and they needed a more cost effective solution.

The Solution

PowTechnology’s IIoT kit was retro-fitted to Cemex silos on multiple sites, reporting regular data from existing load cells. Data for all sites is now available to the logistics team, so they can place timely orders and ensure sites are always well stocked.

The Result

Cemex schedule depot deliveries to minimise cost and disruption. Run-outs and part-load returns are eliminated. Construction materials are always available for Cemex customers, who cans operate more efficiently and avoid penalty clauses. Cemex remain the construction solutions partner of choice through reliable service. Historical data assists management analysis and planning.
