Schneider Electric and KROHNE have announced a partnership to provide customers with a complete solution including Schneider Electric’s PlantStruxure process automation architecture  and KROHNE’s instrumentation offer.

Schneider Electric’s open system architecture and KROHNE’s customised instrumentation offer allows for easy integration of the complete solution, which enables customers to achieve increased energy efficiency, productivity, and process optimisation.

"We are building this partnership on the shared values of search for simplicity, drive for innovation and Voice of the Customer oriented developments," says Cyril Perducat CTO of Schneider Electric Industry Business.

David Orgaz, Vice President, Process Automation Systems of Schneider Electric, adds: "The integration of KROHNE's best in class instrumentation offer with Schneider Electric's PlantStruxure offer will deliver some great synergies and superior customer benefits and is very much in line with what we hear in terms of what our customers need to cope with the evolving challenges in process and energy management."

Michael Dubbick, co-CEO of the KROHNE Group, adds: “We have already worked together on several major projects in the past. Based on this experience, we strongly believe that the combined engineering experience of our two global companies, together with the Schneider Electric PlantStruxure system for plant automation and energy management, will become a real success story.

Stephan Neuburger, co-CEO of the KROHNE group, says: “We look forward to contributing our engineering and application knowledge to projects in different industry segments such as Oil & Gas, Water & Wastewater, Food & Beverage as well as Metals, Minerals and Mining. In these vertical sectors, KROHNE has already proven its unique level of expertise by not only resolving standard applications but also those which demand innovative, customised instrumentation solutions.”

Schneider Electric’s PlantStruxure process automation architecture helps customers achieve energy and productivity improvement objectives by creating a single environment to measure energy use, process data, asset utilisation and machine performance.

To achieve this, KROHNE delivers matching and integrated measurement solutions for flow, level, pressure and temperature measurements as well as analytical tasks, providing the necessary information to monitor and optimize plant processes that involve liquid, gaseous or solid mediums.
