Increase refining margins with optimized operations and workflows
When margins are low, optimization is key
We provide solutions to the world’s toughest industrial challenges: enabling more renewable energy on the grid; reducing emissions; increasing plant productivity and adapting to demand.
Optimal controls allow you to put units where they generate the highest margins
When some products have a higher a margin than others it is key to focus on the high margin ones. With perfect controls it becomes possible to squeeze out the last drop of high value product from your CDU, VDU, FCC,….
Energy efficiency boosts the refinery margin and helps the environment
Improving energy efficiency in a refinery is very important. Less energy consumption means producing more products for the market and reduced impact on the environment.
Monitor equipment health in real time. Increase availability and save energy
Softsensors are used to compute, in real time, fouling in reactors and heat exchangers. This equipment health monitor reduces the risk for outages significantly. Running with equipment with less fouling will save millions per year on energy.
Get maximum value out of your plant

Process Control & APC
Optimal PID control and Advanced Process Controls stabilizes your plant. Improve quality, reliability, efficiency, and sustainability with control systems designed to optimize your operations.
Softsensors are used for the prediction of product qualities in real time. This approach makes it possible to control these qualities in closed loop. In combination with APC it is possible to boost the production of the most valuable products.
Continuous optimization through automated and integrated processes provides value throughout the production lifecycle, delivering target business outcomes without violating the process constraints.
Benchmark your alarm situation and then develop an alarm management philosophy document tailored from best-practice templates with buy-in from process engineers, operators, and controls staff. The document serves as a guide for maintaining a discipline of alarm management through the plant lifecycle.
Drive down process emissions through effective monitoring and visualization. Meet environmental goals by tracking and reporting emissions & targets.
