(BW)(EMERSON-PROCESS)(EMR)Emerson Provides State-of-the-Art Process Automation Technologies for Jubilant Life Sciences Plants in Gujarat
Emerson’s DeltaVT digital automation systems help increase manufacturing productivity and reduce operating costs and complexity

Ahmedabad, Gujarat and Mumbai, Maharashtra, India, Wednesday, July 11, 2012 — (Business Wire India) —

Emerson Process Management has completed installation and commissioning of digital automation technology for leading pharmaceutical company Jubilant Life Sciences’ plants in Bharuch, Gujarat. Emerson’s solution will help Jubilant Life Sciences increase the plants’ manufacturing productivity, improve efficiency, and significantly reduce operating costs.

Jubilant’s three plants form part of the Jubilant SEZ (Special Economic Zone) which was recently inaugurated by Gujarat Chief Minister Shri Narendra Modi. The SEZ is spread over 250 acres in Vilayat Industrial Estate and caters specifically to the pharmaceutical and chemicals industry.

“We are setting up world-class manufacturing facilities,” said Mr. Mukul Dixit, Senior Vice President, Projects at Jubilant Life Sciences. “Emerson’s team brought the process automation expertise we needed to meet global standards, and their solutions have equipped us to significantly improve the automation level and enhance our plant efficiency.”

Jubliant’s large-capacity plants in the SEZ are equipped with Emerson’s technologies and manufacture 3-cyanopyridine and vitamin B3.

Emerson provided its PlantWebT digital plant architecture to automate the three manufacturing facilities, including DeltaVT digital automation systems, AMS Suite predictive maintenance software, and Rosemount® field instrumentation among its other offerings.

The flexibility and ease of use of the DeltaV system meets the complex production needs of Jubilant, making it ideal for the company’s critical pharmaceutical processes. The three DeltaV systems communicate with numerous field devices using FOUNDATION Fieldbus technology.

Emerson’s AMS Suite software was used during installation of measurement and control devices to help reduce costs and improve device startup efficiency. Jubilant Life Sciences will use the software’s predictive maintenance capabilities on an ongoing basis to further increase the availability and performance of the plant.

According to Mr. Amit Paithankar, Managing Director, Emerson Process Management, India, “Emerson’s DeltaV system has advanced batch capabilities that help enable agile manufacturing to meet real-time demands. We have proven strengths in the life-sciences sector and we have successfully executed more than 12 automation projects for Jubilant’s process units in Gajraula, Uttar Pradesh, Baroda, Gujarat and Nira, Maharashtra.”

The DeltaV digital automation system helps harness today’s predictive technologies in an easy way to connect people, processes, and production. The DeltaV system is a preferred solution for refineries and petrochemical plants globally. This technology was also voted best in batch process automation for the 10th straight year by readers of Control magazine in their annual Readers’ Choice Awards in 2012.

Fifteen out of the top 20 life science companies in India use technologies provided by Emerson Process Management. Emerson has commissioned more than 275 DeltaV system projects in India over the past decade across multiple industry segments such as chemicals, petrochemicals, oil and gas, refinery, metals, and life sciences.
