Tokyo, September 13, 2013
Yokogawa Electric Corporation said one of its subsidiaries has clinched an order from JX Nippon Oil & Energy Corporation (JXE) to execute the front end engineering design (FEED) for an oil refinery project.
Founded in 1915, Yokogawa, a $4 billion company which conducts cutting-edge research and innovation, has a global network of 88 companies spanning 55 countries.
The company is engaged in the industrial automation and control (IA), test and measurement, and other businesses segments.
As per the deal, Yokogawa Solution Service Corporation, which oversees the group’s IA and control business in Japan, will compelete the FEED for the Nippon project to help consolidate the control rooms and systems at its Mizushima-A oil refinery.
During the planning phase of this project, Yokogawa conducted a feasibility study of control systems, said a statement from the company.
Upon signing the contract, Yokogawa will prepare a master plan to introduce a Centum VP production control system that will integrate the monitoring and control functions for units throughout the refinery complex that are currently handled by multiple control systems, it stated.
This master plan will also address the introduction of a ProSafe-RS, a safety instrumented system to ensure the safety of processes throughout the refinery.
Yokogawa said it will also propose solutions to JXE such as software packages for remote monitoring and online diagnosis that improve maintenance efficiency, field wireless solutions that enable the installation of measuring instruments at previously difficult-to-install locations, advanced control rooms with designs that enhance operability and the visibility of data, and operator training systems.
These solutions can thus enhance operational safety and stability, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
