IPS to install operator simulator for Sinclair refinery
"Sinclair Wyoming Refinery selected Invensys' OTS solution based on its ability to integrate easily and be compatible with our existing control system," said Ed Juno, Operations Manager at Sinclair Wyoming Refining Company.
The Invensys OTS solution will include SimSci-Esscor DYNSIM simulation software for high fidelity process modeling of all plant processes. The OTS will play an important role at the refinery, as the new delayed coker unit is the first such unit installed at the facility. The simulator will help accelerate commissioning of the new unit.
The Sinclair Wyoming Refinery currently employs Foxboro I/A Series distributed control systems (DCS) throughout the facility, and the new software implementation will include the FSIM Plus solution that simulates the Foxboro DCS, facilitating controls checkout and related operator functions. The operations and controls simulation solution is integrated by the SimSci-Esscor SIM4ME common user environment. Invensys will provide a range of professional services in connection with the OTS implementation.
