The Challenges and the SolutionsProject executionIn such a large greenfield project, it is important to start engineering and determine the basic specifications at an early stage. As the MAC, Yokogawa Thailand proceeded from front end engineering design (FEED) to the engineering phase, then undertook configuration & implementation, staging, and startup & commissioning. By executing this project as the MAC, Yokogawa Thailand was able to effectively manage the overall project schedule and reduce maintenance costs by maintaining consistency in the specifications.Safety and efficiencyThe CENTUM VP PCS and ProSafe-RS SIS were integrated using the same engineering environment. This reduced the overall engineering costs and resulted in a system that operates smoothly and efficiently. The PCS and SIS faceplates have the same look & feel, and security measures are in place that restrict access to the SIS faceplate.The ethylene plant has multiple crackers and decoking is essential to maintaining efficient ethylene production. The InsightSuite AE analysis package calculates an optimum decoking algorithm that is used to optimize steam consumption, for greater efficiency and improved plant safety.Asset maximizationTo manage the more than 5,000 Yokogawa field instruments installed throughout this large complex, MOC opted for a remote monitoring solution based on Yokogawa’s PRM plant asset management package that reduces the maintenance workload for field technicians and generates summary reports for future reference. This is backed by InsightSuite AE services that work 24/7 to identify issues and implement corrections that improve both availability and performance rate and reduce maintenance costs over the entire plant lifecycle.The olefins plant has approximately 20 critical safety valves that are rated for SIL levels 1, 2, and 3, and they need to be checked periodically to determine that they are in correct working order. PRM’s partial stroke test (PST) function allows these tests to be run from the control room, eliminating the need for technicians to go to each device to manually check its operation. This reduces workload and ensures safety.Analyzer maintenance and data acquisitionNearly 60 gas chromatographs and a large number of other types of analyzers in several analyzer houses are utilized throughout this petrochemical complex. An AAIMS is used to monitor, evaluate, and improve the performance of these on-line analyzers in a cost-effective manner. An AAIMS executes statistical analyses for analyzer validation; calculates validation KPIs such as availability rate, breakdown rate, checking rate, reproduction rate, and standard deviation; and generates SQC validation, maintenance, and key performance reports. An AAIMS has the following benefits:•A flexible and reliable tool that centralizes the monitoring and management of analyzers•Automates the collection of analyzer data in real time from the PCS, through an OPC server•Automates the analyzer validation process Working at an AAIMS workstation, operators, QMI personnel, and maintenance personnel can also manually enter and edit data like sample test results and maintenance records.The information on gas chromatographs and other types of analyzers that is gathered with this system can play an important role in maximizing the efficiency of plant operations.Customer SatisfactionWitoon Pradubsripetch, the olefins production manager at the MOC complex, said, “We are striving to operate this plant safely and efficiently, and to make maximum effective use of all assets. That’s why we are using field digital technology with FDT/DTM, PRM, and AAIMS. We have started using ISA 100 wireless devices at our raw material tank yard. All systems in this plant are integrated in the central control room. Our operators can clearly see everything that is happening in the plant. They know the status of each operation and have all the information they need to make correct and timely decisions. We appreciate the support given to us by Yokogawa Thailand.”Wireless transmitterCentral control roomSuccess Story Collection38Map Ta Phut Olefins Company Limited / Thailand
