Hebei biomaterials plant selects Siveco China for Asset Maintenance Management project
Hebei CASDA Biomaterials Co., Ltd., part of specialty materials leader Arkema Group, has selected Siveco China to implement its Maintenance 4.0 solution for Asset & Maintenance Management. The decision was made after a comprehensive selection process and careful consideration of various suppliers.
Established in January 2010, Hebei CASDA Biomaterials Co., Ltd. joined Arkema Group in January 2012 with a registered capital of 4.19 million RMB. The plant covers an area of 338 acres and employs more than 420 people. As a leading manufacturer in the sebacic acid industry, CASDA benefits from over 50 years' experience. Its main product, sebacic acid, is bio-based, has high purity and offers stable supply. It is mainly used as raw materials for cold-resistant plasticizers, synthetic resins, synthetic fibers and nylon. It is sold in over 20 countries across Europe, America and Japan.
The chemical industry is currently undergoing a transformation driven by business growth, stricter regulations and digitalization. CASDA pays foremost attention to asset maintenance management in order to ensure the safe and reliable performance of the plant and to control life-cycle cost. Maintenance represents a major workload of high complexity, requiring advanced skills and tools. CASDA decided to embrace the trend of informatization to tackle its maintenance improvement needs.
Siveco China was selected in part thanks to its successful track record working for other Arkema and Bostik plants in China and more generally its experience with large chemical companies. CASDA will deploys Siveco China's Maintenance 4.0 solution based on the Coswin 8i CMMS and the bluebee® mobile solution. The main focus of the project is to help the plant improve its maintenance planning, ensure full traceability of work, manage spare parts and overall enable a feedback loop from workers to managers for better decision making. The implementation methodology is built upon the ISO 55000 Asset Management standard. The project was launched on December 6, 2021, date on which the Siveco China project team came on site to conduct initial training and implementation study.
