Project “Upgrading DCS Eurotherm system” for customers of Ha Tien Cement 1


Ha Tien 1 Cement Joint Stock Company (XMHT 1) is the main unit of Vietnam Cement Corporation in the Southern region. Ha Tien 1 Cement is currently leading in terms of cement consumption in Region IV with 39% and accounts for about 8% of the national cement market share. The company’s distribution system is mainly concentrated in the region IV market with a wide and diverse distribution system with the ability to provide products to consumers in the most convenient way.

Ha Tien 1 Cement Factory has been put into operation since 2012 so there are some limitations in operation:

  • The DCS software on the server computer is running on the 32-bit Windows XP Operating System and Microsoft no longer provides technical support for Windows XP since 2014
  • The DCS server system is often overloaded and crashes because the computer uses 32-bit Windows operating system, so RAM is limited to 4GHz.
  • Outdated computer hardware and unstable 24/7 continuous operation due to no industry standard

With existing limitations, ESEC was trusted by Ha Tien 1 Cement and given the responsibility to implement the project “Upgrading the DCS Eurotherm system” to solve the above problems. However, XMHT 1 also provides strict criteria that ESEC engineers must ensure to comply to bring the best results to customers:

  • Time to complete the upgrade of the entire system within 4 days to coincide with the factory’s annual overhaul maintenance stop
  • Survey all connections of the system to make the optimal plan to avoid omissions
  • It is imperative to have a backup solution when the upgrade fails to return the old system for production operation
  • Ask genuine experts to guide system handover

We, East Sea Environmental Energy Company (ESEC) as the official distributor (Authorized Distributor) of Eurotherm in Vietnam, ESEC has provided the solution “Upgrading the Eurotherm DCS system” to bring a DCS server industrial computer system operates stably and optimally for Ha Tien 1 Cement Factory.
