Summary of revamp of 5million tonne / year processing high-acid crude oil facility for Sinopec Qingdao
The revamp of the high-acid crude oil facility for China Sinopec Qingdao Petrochemical LLC was one of Sinopec’s 20 core projects in 2009 (14 were refinery-related). It was a massive project comprising many combined facilities, with very strong demand and high standards for automation control system products and engineering construction implementation capabilities.
The whole project used a central control room (CCR) to facilitate centralised monitoring of all equipment, and a field apparatus room (FAR), field control station, and different types of terminal cabinets were established near the facilities that were in close proximity, taking charge of the acquisition of field signals. Redundant fiber connections were used between the FAR and CCR.
The project was a resounding success with high client satisfaction. Out of over 200 suppliers, HollySys was rated as one of their “Top 10 Suppliers” for their project.
