Invensys will sell ACM Facility Safety‚Äôs process safety decision-support software, Machu Picchu.
April 7, 2011 - Invensys Operations Management will be the exclusive provider of Machu Picchu process safety decision-support solution from ACM Facility Safety, a division of ACM Automation.
Designed to work with a plant’s process automation, control and safety systems, the Machu Picchu decision-support tool provides visibility into process risks and combines expert knowledge of the plant’s risk parameters, diagnostic alarms and historical operator observations to monitor the integrity of all safeguards 24x7. It then calculates the level of risk caused by a deviation and provides operators a set of pre-engineered contingency plans or detailed instructions on how to address abnormal situations.
“Together, Invensys and ACM are embarking on a new path to make industrial plants safer,” said Steve Elliott, environment & safety excellence principal for Invensys Operations Management. “Invensys will take responsibility for the delivery of new solutions that enable customers to continuously track deviations between the plant’s designed risk profile and the actual operating risk profile in real time. Using dashboard displays, plant operators will be able to readily identify, mitigate, minimize and potentially eliminate process risks. This expanded solution capability enhances our Triconex® safety software and systems to help our clients achieve sustainable environment and safety excellence. The partnership with ACM is another example of how our global Ecosystem of partners accelerates our capability to deliver integrated solutions that deliver real-time results.” Murray Macza, general manager for ACM Automation., said, “We are extremely pleased to be working with Invensys—the acknowledged leader in critical control and safety systems—to extend our global reach and bring our safety offerings to the chemical, petrochemical, refining, oil and gas production, power generation and manufacturing industries. Today’s end users are under tremendous pressure to run their plants at maximum throughput without limiting their commitment to safety and the environment.
