Taking stock – A key player in the phosphate industry and its derivatives relies on Siemens system solution for stockyard management

Taking stock – A key player in the phosphate industry and its derivatives relies on Siemens system solution for stockyard management
At every production site, the stockyards are equipped with a certain number of stackers and reclaimers. The stockyards are controlled and monitored from central control rooms. As part of the industrial digitalization program, each of these control rooms will be equipped with the latest control technology. The new solution encompasses a WinCC Scada (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition) system as well as the MAQ system including a 3D stockyard model and an autonomous stockyard operating system (MOM) for the independent operation of every machine. In addition, all machines will be equipped with new cameras and modern condition monitoring systems for simple autonomous operation which will allow anticipation of faults and speed up default diagnostics.

Reducing costs, increasing efficiency

Additional network and communication systems, e.g. Scalance WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network) systems are used for secure data exchange between the control room and the machine. The combination of the Advanced Stockyard Management System and the Scada components enables all machinery to be operated both manually and autonomously and material stock levels to be tracked across the stockyard sites (concerned by the project) or part of the project.

With the new solution, OCP will improve the control of the stability of the reclaimed flow and greater machine availability at all sites equipped with the Siemens Stockyard Management System. Production data will be available in real time. As well as providing important information about the status of machinery and therefore aiding anticipation of faults, this also will foster the preservation of reclaimer equipment. The Siemens Advanced Stockyard Management system implemented here is the first of its kind in Morocco.
