從一個觀察者看來,由橫河的警戒工廠解決方案管理的煉油廠,看起來“安靜且單調”- 出自彼得•杜拉克的名言。(A well-managed organization is boring. A well-managed factory is boring. Nothing exciting happens in it because the crises have been anticipated and have been converted into routine)

工廠的盈利能力卻能夠大幅提高自動化系統幫助工廠人員管理使用知識,提高生產力並遵守健康,安全和環境法規。在恰當的時間把前後相關的訊息清晰地傳遞給正確的人,讓責任人有預見性,冷靜,高效地處理突發事件。橫河的警戒工廠解決方案幫助所有煉油企業實現“安靜且單調”的工廠。

客戶面臨的挑戰

煉油廠的知識密集型操作,如工廠的啟動和關閉,壓縮機的啟動和原油罐切換,仍然需要由大量操作員手動操作。比如,有效的原油切換通常需要一套複雜的操作,包括啟動/停止馬達,打開/關閉閥,流量測量和沖洗等。這通常需要由最有經驗的操作員按特定順序執行。

此外,由於有經驗的操作人員最終將退休或離職,因此有必要保留他們的專門知識和最佳做法,並將這些知識準確地傳遞給非熟練的操作人員。這是至關重要的,以便最大限度地提高生產效率,避免或消除可能由誤操作導致的停機。

我們的解決方案

透過使用Exapilot,可以在標準化的程序流程圖中將橫河知識管理的自動化解決方案,專業知識和卓越的操作實踐形象化並進行管理和配定。這種標準化的方法不僅實現了複雜操作的100%自動化,而且保證了每當操作員發生變化或技能水平不同時,有價值的專業知識可以被精確地轉交和執行。

客戶面臨的挑戰

在煉油廠可以通過安裝高效的設備和更有效地運營來實現節能。橫河擁有可以幫助企業提高效率和降低能源消耗的解決方案。

我們的解決方案

自上世紀70年代石油危機以來,日本的煉油業一直通過降低能源消耗和減少二氧化碳排放來應對不斷上漲的能源價格和嚴格的監管。煉油廠經營者通過引進一些世界上最先進的技術來實現這一目標,並在這方面得到了橫河系統,解決方案和工程能力的支持。橫河已經參與了1000多個煉油項目,並在這個行業建立了很好的聲譽。橫河提供的解決方案,通過提高效率節約能源。

1,能耗的可視化與關鍵績效指標(KPI)管理

為了節約能源,減少煉油廠的CO2排放,必須清楚地看到排放和能源消耗的狀況。橫河提供了廣泛的解決方案,如現場傳感器和生產管理系統,依靠最新技術來監測和管理與能源有關的參數。

    運行管理可視化
    生產管理可視化
    現場數據的可視化

2,降低爐膛/鍋爐煙氣中過量氧含量

當煙氣中存在過量氧(O 2)時,結果是不完全燃燒。通常,O2保持在最佳水平的1.5-2%之內,但是已經證明激光傳感技術可以提高CO 2 / O 2 / CO 2測量的速度和可靠性,並且進一步減少過量的氧氣,從而更加節省能量。

客戶面臨的挑戰

品調合是將原油轉化為汽油等成品的最後一步。當使用傳統的混合技術如油箱混合和比例混合時,精煉者傾向於使用過量的添加劑以保證汽油產品符合調節器設定的最低規格。然而,由於混合添加劑的成本很高,需要既能降低成本又能滿足最低規格的混合溶液。

我們的解決方案

橫河提供一個混合優化系統,或稱混合特性控制(BPC)解決方案,它根據NIR分析儀連續在線分析產品特性所測得的值,實時計算最佳混合比,自動修改控制器的設定值來自動調節在線混合比。

除了BPC解決方案之外,橫河還可以提供完全整合的非現場解決方案,這些解決方案覆蓋所有非現場工業操作,例如石油移動系統(OMS),實驗室訊息系統,分析儀系統和調度/計劃系統。

摘要:

Utilities and energy systems are often the major source of SOx, NOx and CO2 emissions, therefore, emissions control and the management of credits and quotas are tightly interrelated with energy management.

In the case of refineries, chemical and petrochemical plants, energy represents the main cost (second to feedstock) and therefore its reduction has become a bottom line business decision. The energy systems at these sites are inherently complex, with the emissions cost analysis and limits compliance introducing an additional factor to the complexity of the energy costs reduction challenge.

Process plants use different type of fuels, they often operate cogeneration units, their steam networks consist of several pressure levels, there are different types of energy consumers and there are emission limits to be observed. Import or export of electricity in deregulated markets, which could also be traded off with more or less CO2 and other contaminant gaseous emissions, increase the optimization problem complexity.

A calculation of equipment efficiencies is done as part of the performance monitoring activity of the model. Other monitoring aspects include the continuous auditing of the energy system so the data can be relied on for evaluating the value of energy production and usage, and waste can be reduced or eliminated.

A detailed model of the energy system has been built and it is continuously fed with validated (not reconciliated), real-time data. It includes all the actual constraints of the site and decision variables for their operation. Continuous performance monitoring is also done, since the model writes back its results to the Real Time Data Base (Plant Information system). It also provides reliable data that helps to audit the energy productions and usages within the site energy system, and in that way wastes can be detected and eliminated.

An online steam management program can help refineries manage their steam and utility systems more energy efficiently and reduce their operating costs through optimisation and monitoring

摘要:

Big and complex industrial facilities like Refineries and Petrochemicals are becoming increasingly aware that power systems need to be optimally managed because any energy reduction that Operations accomplish in the producing Units could eventually be wasted if the overall power system cost is not properly managed. However, process engineers always attempted to develop some kind of tools, many times spreadsheet based, to improve the way utilities systems were operated. The main drawback of the earlier attempts was the lack of data: engineers spent the whole day at phone or visiting the control rooms to gather information from the Distributed Control System (DCS) data historian, process it at the spreadsheet and produce recommendations that, when ready to be applied, were outdated and not any more applicable.

Standard Automation Methodology Improves Operations and Prevents Incidents by Enabling the Sharing of Best Practices Among Operators.

摘要:

ARC believes that by implementing procedural automation, many process plants can minimize variability to help ensure smooth, efficient, and safe state transitions.

摘要:

The global refining industry is constantly evolving and responding to new crude supplies and sources, more stringent fuel/product specifications, perpetually changing demand patterns and other global and regional trends. Increased competition from large, efficient refineries is forcing small- to mid-sized refiners to rethink their strategies to remain competitive.

摘要:

Increasing oil prices are reducing the relative feedstock and energy costs advantages refiners and petrochemicals producers have recently enjoyed. Allied with the high cost and growing scarcity of skilled staff, a fundamental shift in mindset towards plant operations and maintenance is required to assure organizational resilience. Therefore, the desire to achieve enhanced cost structures through innovation in operating models and digitalization has intensified.
