"We do that by streamlining our automation to better assist companies worldwide. In the food and beverages sector one of our areas of focus is breweries. We help operators manage their production processes accurately and safely with our computerization and automation solutions, which allows them to monitor the consistent flavor and quality of their beers. The continuous evolution of these automation systems is an important aspect of this process, which ABB supports through a step-by-step approach. Such projects are often implemented under considerable time constraints."
This was also the case with Belle-Vue. It was decided in December 2015 to replace the SattTops. Olivier: "Production stops between Christmas and New Year, which was the only suitable period for us to execute this project. We prepared a tight schedule in cooperation with ABB. We were not sure initially whether we would be able to make such a tight deadline. Various parts had to be ordered, which required extra logistical and planning efforts from everyone involved. Sometimes you hear people say that large companies such as ABB are not flexible, but we found quite the opposite in this case. We are now guaranteed to have a safe, high-performance system in place until 2020, so we have every reason to be satisfied."
