Ardbeg Distillery CIP Plant

Ardbeg Distillery, on the Isle of Islay tasked Advanced Electrics Ltd to carry out the design and installation of the electrical system for their new Cleaning in Place (CIP) system. Advanced Electrics engaged with Elite Controls to design a new Siemens PLC and SCADA system to run the new plant. Site works to install a new PLC panel, motor control centre and all associated field equipment were carried out over a period of 4 weeks in January 2013. After a successful commissioning week at the end of January 2013 the distillery operators were trained in the new systems operation. Being the first automated system within the Distillery the operators were naturally a little nervous with the new system, but having seen the ease and reliability of operation those fears were soon put to rest. This project also included the supply of all automatic valves and instrumentation required for the plant.
