The current automation system at the plant was installed by ABB, and it has been modernized many times in the past 15 years, the press statement noted. 

Richter said it saw benefits in continuing to partner with ABB in its latest development.

“As the current ABB system expansion makes it possible to use the present application software, the whole project with the entire validation will last a year only”, Jenő Fodor, project director of Richter at the Dorog plant, said.

The press statement noted that Richter and ABB have been in cooperation for years, carrying out several projects together.
