In addition to looking for a reliable solution, companies that wish to install a safety instrumented system need to make maximum effective use of available space and have operation history management functionality that simplifies the task of identifying where problems are occurring in an operation.
Among these standards are IEC 61508 and IEC 61511 for the consolidation and adoption of safety instrumented systems.
Under the contract, Yokogawa will supply the CENTUM VP integrated production control system and the ProSafe-RS safety instrumented system for the power plant.
Yokogawa has therefore developed this enhanced version of the ProSafe-RS Safety Instrumented System with features such as a high-speed CPU module and a strengthened online maintenance function, and are targeting its use mainly in those international markets where many large projects are planned.
For the control of the boilers and all auxiliary facilities at this plant, Yokogawa will supply the CENTUM VP integrated production control system and the ProSafe-RS safety instrumented system. In addition to being responsible for the engineering of the facility's automation systems, Yokogawa France will support both the installation and commissioning of these systems.
Plant safety is critical and the TUV certified AC 800M HI controllers are used as the safety instrumented system to control the processing plant, associated pipelines and the well heads, which are situated up to 2 km from the processing plant.
Emerson will also provide an Ovation Safety Instrumented System to meet SIL3 requirements for boiler protection, electrical control via native IEC 61850 modules, an Ovation high-fidelity simulator, and AMS Suite predictive maintenance software.
Honeywell announced its Safety Manager platform is the process industriesCO first safety instrumented system (SIS) to receive the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 72 Standard for Fire Protection from a US-certifying body.
de C.V., a subsidiary of the Spanish EPC firm ACS, to supply an integrated control and safety instrumented system solution for an ultra-low-sulfur diesel fuel plant that is being built for PEMEX Refinacion, a subsidiary of Mexico's national oil company, PEMEX.
CENTUMA VP R5 integrated production control system for the control of the boiler and its auxiliary facilities, including all IEC61850-based electrical systems; a ProSafeA-RS safety instrumented system (SIS); an Exaquantum plant information management system (PIMS); a plant operation training simulator
has acquired Texas, US-based Horizon Consultants, experts in process safety engineering for the hydrocarbon process industries, to strengthen safety instrumented systems engineering/consulting, the company said.
Improvements will include new cooling towers, new process control technology, upgraded reactor piping for improved pressure relief, and new safety instrumented systems.
