D/3 Wins Shanshui Chemical Co (YiChang China) PVC Automation Plant

PUBLISHED ON Mar 27, 2008

YICHANG, China – NovaTech Automation strategic partner Advanced Control Systems (ACS) won a fierce competition – trumping rival bids from Honeywell TPS, Yokogawa C3000, SUPCON, and Fuji. Shanshui Chemical Co Ltd (a subsidiary of Yichang Shan Shui Investment Co.,Ltd) will use NovaTech Automation’s D/3 DCS for their new PVC plant in mainland China. ACS, with offices in Taiwan, Shanghai and Xiamen, credits the win to their demonstrated success with similar projects, a reputation for outstanding service, and the reliability and flexibility of the D/3. Another D/3 DCS currently in operation at the Nan-Ya (Formosa) PVC plant in Taipei provided additional credibility. The system will be delivered to ACS’ offices in Shanghai for panel assembly and functional testing prior to transportation to the plant for a scheduled August 2008 start up. NovaTech Automation engineers will support ACS engineering staff throughout the process. Mainland China is one of the fastest growing markets for PVC products (as well as the fastest-growing Greenfield automation market in the world), and the customer is already planning an expansion to the new PVC plant in the near future.
