(KKPC) is a major producer of synthetic rubbers, resins and specialty chemicals, and electronic components for the semiconductor industry, and also constructs heat and power plants that supply steam and electricity. Founded in 1970, KKPC is a subsidiary of the Kumho Asiana Group, a large conglomerate that is engaged in a wide variety of business fields including land and sea transportation, construction, tire manufacturing, and financial services. KKPC has a number of plants in Ulsan and Yeosu, South Korea, and also has operations in China, Germany, Indonesia, and the US. Its products are found in everything from tires and shoes to office supplies and building materials. In 2005, KKPC decided to implement a major upgrade at its sites to expand its speciality business chemicals (SBC) capability and improve the efficiency of its production operations. The decision to choose Yokogawa’s Exaquantum solution over competing products stemmed from both the long and close relationship between KKPC and Yokogawa and the high functionality of Exaquantum. At the company’s Ulsan resin plant, six Exaquantum servers were connected to CENTUM CS 3000 and Honeywell TDC 3000 systems as well as PLCs from other suppliers. Exaquantum servers were also installed at the company’s resin and rubber plants in Ulsan and Yeosu. At the company’s SBC plant in Ulsan, Exaquantum/Batch along with a four-client system that provides KPI and historian data for up to 50 polymer batch products were introduced. In addition a limited number of Exaquantum clients were installed at the company’s head office in Seoul.Plant InformationLocation: Ulsan, South KoreaOrder date:August 2006Completion:June 2008Central control room23Success Story CollectionChemical (Fine & Specialty Chemical, Biofuel)& Pharmaceutical
