Siemens Energy & Automation (www.sea.siemens.com) was awarded a project valued at more than $1 million to modernize the automation system at the Bayer CropScience (www.bayercropscience.com) site in Institute, West Virginia. The deal involves a migration to Siemens SIMATIC® PCS 7 distributed control system (DCS).
Bayer CropScience specializes in crop protection, non-agriculture pest control, seeds, and plant biotechnology. By implementing PCS 7 DCS, Bayer CropScience expects to streamline scheduling requirements and modernize manufacturing processes at its facility. PCS 7 DCS provides a single integrated platform for DCS, batch, safety, and process simulation technology. It also enables S88 implementation and documentation of the batch process.
