Siemens will be responsible for the supply of complete range of its SICEMENT product portfolio that includes electrical equipment and automation systems for the new line along with a major part of the process instrumentation as well as the analyzers and special instrumentation.

SICEMENTCIS CEMAT was specifically designed by Siemens for cement plants in cooperation with cement companies and has been well proven in the harsh environment over many years of service.

The whole range of electrical equipment that Siemens will supply includes the cabling for the medium and low-voltage distribution systems, the power factor compensation system, transformers, the low-voltage distribution panels with intelligent MCCs (motor control centers) and variable speed drives.
