Invensys Completes First Phase of Automation Project at Russian Refinery
Invensys Operations Management has completed the first phase of a main automation contractor project at the new Yaysky oil refinery in Russia, the company said Feb. 26.
Under the terms of the multimillion-dollar agreement, Invensys has supplied complete control and safety solutions, including field instrumentation, process analytics and valves to the refinery located in Kemerovo, a city in Russia’s Kuzbass region.
Included in the project are the company’s Foxboro distributed control system, Triconex emergency shutdown systems and Foxboro measurement and instrumentation solutions, as well as new Foxboro visualization and configuration tools.
The company also will provide comprehensive installation, engineering, development, support and on-site training services. NefteKhimService JSC, a Russian company and investor in the Yaysky project, selected Invensys as the MAC after an open-vendor bid in 2009.
The Yaysky facility is designed to process 3 million tons of crude oil per year. After start up, it will annually produce more than 400,000 tons of gasoline and 1.5 million tons of diesel fuel, satisfying more than 60 percent of the fuel consumption needs of Russia’s Kuzpass region, located in southwestern Siberia. The successful first phase sets up the refinery for the next two phases of implementation, which will expand production to 6 million tons of crude oil per year and increase oil conversion to 93 percent.
