Sharing our success – PT Semen Gresik

PT Semen Gresik, located in Surabaya – Indonesia is one of the main producer of cement products for the building industry. In the production processes, residual fine dust is present in the environment and is dispersed by natural environmental conditions around the complex and surrounding areas in the vicinity of the complex. Being a responsible corporate citizen, PT Semen Gresik is concern about the environmental effects of the dispersion of such fine dust.

» Challenge / Issue:
PT Semen Gresik, located in Surabaya – Indonesia is one of the main producer of cement products for the building industry. In its large manufacturing complex in Gresik, concrete rocks are mined, crushed and processed into the final concrete products.  In the production processes, residual fine dust is present in the environment and is dispersed by natural environmental conditions around the complex and surrounding areas in the vicinity of the complex. Being a responsible corporate citizen, PT Semen Gresik is concern about the environmental effects of the dispersion of such fine dust. The continuous pursuit to minimize the environmental effects to the surrounding areas resulted in having a need to understand the wind behavior around the complex in order to initiate preventive and mitigation actions to minimize such effects.

 

» Approach:
To understand wind behavior, continuous measurement and monitoring of wind direction and speed is needed. The measured values are profiled for the trend analysis of the wind behavior over the period and to allow for timely intervention by personnel of the company.

 

WS500-UMB installation

 » Benefits:
Continuous monitoring of the wind behavior brings about greater understanding of the dust dispersion pattern. Timely intervention strategies to reduce its environmental effects could be initiated.

Monitoring of measurement data

» LUFFT’s technology @ work:
The compact WS500-UMB weather station sensor measures the wind behavior (in terms of its direction and speed). The measured values is sent to a data acquisition system and visualized.
