Putting into service of CEFIcis in Cementos Portland Valderrivas CPV (March 2007)

With great success the CEFIcis system has been put into service in four production plants belonging to Cementos Pórtland Valderrivas at Morata de Tajuña (Madrid), Alcalá de Guadaira (Sevilla), Olazagutía (Navarra) and Ventas de Baños (Palencia). This “Sistema Corporativo de Información” (Corporate Information System) stores data in real-time from the existing different control systems installed in the plants controlling process and managing environmental impact, quality, energy and sales. At the same time the system provides the means for remote observation of the plants in real-time, automatic production of reports and control documentation, provides access to historical data in order to facilitate optimisation of processes and, by virtue of an integration module specially developed for the purpose, serves as an automatic source of data for the SAP ERP system. The system has been based on the family of software tools for industrial application by Proficy of GEFanuc.

Given the success of this project, the client has communicated his intent to extend the system to the nine UNILAND Group plants recently acquired by CPV, which are situated in Spain, Tunis, Argentina and Uruguay, and also in the three CPV plants located in the U.S.A.
