Decrease in Production Downtime New Belgium Brewing Co., USA
The New Belgium Brewing Co., the eighth largest brewery in the U.S. since 2012, was able to leverage Wonderware Manufacturing Execution System (MES) Performance Software to decrease production downtime by 50%, increase its packaging line efficiency by 30%, saving more than $400,000 in labor costs, and extend packaging capacity to about 1.3 million barrels each year, all while delaying capital investments and maintaining lower operating costs.
Automated for Efficiency Total Agroindustria, BrazilWhen designing its plant from the ground up, Total looked for a reliable production system that would require a minimum number of operators. It was prepared to invest heavily in technology to make the plant as automated as possible and ensure a high quality output of ethanol and electricity. They also wanted a system that would be scalable to accommodate future expansions, as well as one that could facilitate a short time to market. They chose Schneider Electric to supply all the necessary components, including low voltage, automation and control.

Gravity Meets Energy Efficiency Energy consumption up to 50% lower than traditional distilleriesMackmyra Swedish Whiskey wanted to build the world’s most environmentally-friendly distillery. Together with Gävle Energi, the local energy municipality organization, Schneider Electric incorporated breakthrough designs and helped to build a scalable, energy efficient six-story facility that relies on gravity to produce world-class whiskey. Schneider Electric worked with the customer to present a holistic building and heating solution that automates processes and lowers power consumption. Because EcoStruxure is easy-to-implement and flexible, Mackmyra Swedish Whiskey selected the solution to control and monitor energy consumption during all phases of whiskey production.
More Efficient Manufacturing Argos Cement, South AmericaArgos Cement, a Colombia-based cement manufacturer with over 10,000 employees, chose Schneider Electric to supply electrical equipment and energy management expertise for the development of a new $450 million type-I cement facility. The business goal that drove Argos to engage with Schneider Electric was the desire to enhance competitiveness, and to trim costly waste. The Schneider Electric Ecostruxure architecture enabled the creation of integrated, real time dashboards which provided easy point and click access to key performance metrics, multi-dimensional analysis, and hierarchical and historical views.Related solutions and products
