Matrikon supplies Alarm Management to LyondellBasell Europe
Timo Klingenmeier, General Manager of Matrikon Deutschland stated: The solution enables LyondellBasell to focus on the technical and organizational benefits of implementing a standardized Alarm management system across multiple sites. We are proud to be selected by LyondellBasell Industries as one of the largest global chemical companies for this important aspect of plant safety and reliability.
Harald König, Alarm Management Project Lead at LyondellBasell Europe, stated: We chose Matrikon Alarm Manager because of its ability to easily connect to different types of DCS and other control systems, and because it has extensions to monitor plant performance, control loops, and other plant assets. In addition, Alarm Manager provides a standard set of EEMUA metrics from all the different DCS systems allowing us to benchmark and monitor the performance of each plant in a standardized manner. These metrics will be used to focus on key issues, thus simplifying further alarm system optimization.
