Retrofit

Upgrade of control systems for production and process plants

A complete overhaul of a plant is often more beneficial than a new procurement.


Existing plants can be operated more efficiently after a retrofit, the annual depreciation costs are reduced and thus the capital costs, the operational safety of a plant can be increased.


JAG handles the implementation of retrofit projects while the existing plant remains in operation.


This may involve modernising parts of the automation solution, implementing changes to the process, consolidating functions or implementing an overarching control system.

 
ADVANTAGES

Productivity gains with low investement

A retrofit of the control system provides advantages.

  1. Lifetime extension of a plant
  2. Reduced depreciation costs
  3. Increased productivity and operational safety
  4. Spare parts are available again.
  5. Process improvements
  6. Expansion of plant capacity
  7. Lower servicing expenses and an optimised operating concept increase productivity.
  1. Use of touchscreen operator stations and tablets with a graphic interface allow plant operation to be simplified.
  2. Integration into existing overall control system and data exchange with external control systems increase the degree of automation.
  3. Network connection and interfaces for data exchange with external sytems (e.g. ERP)
  4. Linkage to future IT developments
 

Retrofitting a cheese plant during running production

The existing control system for the cheese plant at Cremo was on its last legs.

Cremo decided to replace the old control system with a new modern automated solution.

JAG implemented the renovation without interrupting or stopping ongoing production.
