Dohaco, one of Vietnam’s leading paper and board producers, has selected ABB to supply a complete electrification and automation solution to expand its operations at its newest mill in Ben Tre province, Vietnam.
ABB’s solution incorporates medium voltage (MV) and low voltage (LV) motor control centers (MCCs), MV and LV motors, power transformers, sectional and single drives, Distributed Control System (DCS), Quality Control System (QCS) and a Dilution Profiler. This helps Dohaco to benefit from a complete solution centered around a collaborative platform that enables the optimisation of electrification and automation of large board machines. ABB is involved in the entire project, including project management, installation supervision and commissioning, ensuring increased efficiency and accuracy for the project duration.
“We selected ABB as our automation and electrification supplier due to their excellent track record and expertise in automation and for the paper industry,” said Luong Van Thanh, Vice General Director of Dohaco. “This is a crucial project to Dohaco and we appreciate ABB’s project execution and excellent service support.”
In order to handle future upgrades and migration smoothly, the system integrates the latest virtualisation technology, along with a seamless integration into ABB Ability™ System 800xA for DCS, QCS and sectional drives together with ABB’s Pulp and Paper Library for board machine applications.
