FLSmidth boosts digital transformation and productivity across Shree Cement Group

DigitalProcess control and optimization
Indian Cement producer Shree Cement installs FLSmidth ECS/PlantDataManagement across 16 plants and 24 lines to drive efficiency and deliver increased productivity. The order also includes the downtime analysis solution, ECS/UptimeGo and access to the mobile plant management app, SiteConnect.

Shree Cement Limited is one of India's top three cement producers, with an installed capacity of 47.4 mtpy across India and the Middle East. With this digital upgrade, Shree Cement lays a foundation for turning data into actionable information that will optimise production lines, minimise equipment downtime, and improve productivity.

Digitalisation has been part of cement quality control for decades, but increased competition and environmental regulations have led more cement producers to build digital capabilities across the flowsheet to optimise production and improve operational management.

Carsten Riisberg Lund, Cement Industry President, FLSmidth, believes Shree Cement is taking a huge leap forward in its digital transformation, commenting:

“The ECS/PlantDataManagement system gives operators critical, real-time data enabling them to track and monitor the performance and health of their sites. Its ability to improve energy efficiency and optimise production makes it part of our MissionZero offerings. With this investment, Shree Cement is safeguarding its production and responding to increased demands for sustainability.”

“We are always looking at ways to optimise production, and the decision to apply FLSmidth’s information management system to all our sites is a natural next step,” says Mr. Prashant Bangur, Joint Managing Director of Shree Cement.

Mr. PN Chhangani, Whole-time Director of Shree Cement Says: “FLSmidth is a trusted partner for us, as we demonstrated by the milling and pyro order, we announced last year. And we are confident that this next step in our digital transformation will prove to be profitable”.
