Schneider Electric Engages Master Certified Alliance Partner to Share Knowledge and Spur Innovation for Plant Automation Project
Schneider Electric and Jordan Engineering collaborate to deliver superior system integration solutions
MISSISSAUGA, ON, July 31, 2020 /CNW/ - Schneider Electric, the leader in digital transformation of energy management and automation, and Ontario-based Jordan Engineering have partnered to bring industry and system integration to a superior level. The collaboration leveraged Schneider Electric's Exchange platform—a digital community that connects industry peers with resources and solutions—to help Jordan Engineering deliver proven solutions to a leading chemical manufacturer in the Greater Toronto Area.
Handling a wide array of recipes, and with more than 40 processes needing to connect to multiple systems, the chemical manufacturer required a control solutions platform that was cost-effective, resilient, expandable and agile for the expansion of an existing facility. Given the project criteria and complexity, Schneider Electric and Jordan Engineering worked together to implement EcoStruxure Process Expert (formerly called EcoStruxure Hybrid DCS)—an automation system that allows users to engineer, operate and maintain the entire plant in one database. For additional reliability and security in classified areas of the plant, the HOT Standby M580 PLC module was also applied.
"At Schneider Electric, we recognize the invaluable benefits of partnering with organizations that share our commitment to delivering custom, innovative solutions to our clients," said Adrien Lemaire, National Industry Business Development Manager, Schneider Electric. "Our EcoStruxure Process Expert platform is the next generation o control automation systems, supporting safe, controlled, efficient and profitable businesses. We enjoyed working alongside Jordan Engineering and their team of experts on this project and know there will be many more to come."
"We build relationships with our clients that allow us to work closely with their operations, maintenance and industry specialists to jointly develop customized, user-friendly systems," said Janelle de Vries, Business Development, Jordan Engineering. "In addition to this, we leverage key relationships like our Master Alliance Certified partnership with Schneider Electric to select and integrate platforms that fit our client's short- and long-term needs. For this project we added a new tool to our toolbox, Schneider Electric`s Exchange. Exchange enabled us to connect with knowledgeable experts and access products from certified partners like ourselves. Working in the Exchange ecosystem allowed us to achieve more for this client than we could have working alone. We look forward to the opportunity to implement EcoStruxure Process Expert and Exchange on future projects."
