AdAstra has signed an important OEM-agreement with Silian Instrument Corporation (SIC), the biggest Chinese state instrument-making enterprise, on joint development of a distributed control system (DCS) based on TRACE MODE and hardware manufactured by SIC. This agreement is an important stage of AdAstra's co-operation with Chinese companies.
Silian is one of 512 large enterprises, which have been mainly supported by the central government. In the instrumentation field the SIC group is the strongest integrated automatic instrument manufacturer in reference with its scale, product catalogs and system Engineering capacity.
"A customer is in the SIC's heart", says the main corporation's motto. 36 Silian's trade representation offices spread over the whole China are willing to provide their customers with first-class services and high-quality products. The main criteria at the selection of the basic SCADA have become TRACE MODE reliability and scalability.
By the present moment, a SIC engineering subdivision has implemented a number of TRACE MODE based projects. In 2004, the company is going to implement another several dozens of control systems.
"Signing of the agreement with Sillian still more brings us together with Chinese users", says Lev Anzimirov, the AdAstra's President. "Jointly with SIC, we will be able to provide our customers with the integrated technologies for process control of any degree of complexity, with high reliability and first-class service maintenance".
