Oil refinery FEED contract awarded to Yokogawa
Yokogawa Solution Service Corporation, a subsidiary that oversees Yokogawa’s IA and control business in Japan, has received an order from JX Nippon Oil & Energy Corporation (JXE) to execute the front end engineering design (FEED) for a project to consolidate the control rooms and systems at its Mizushima-A oil refinery.
During the planning phase of this project, Yokogawa conducted a feasibility study of control systems. Upon signing the contract, Yokogawa will prepare a master plan to introduce a Centum VP production control system that will integrate the monitoring and control functions for units throughout the refinery complex that are currently handled by multiple control systems. This master plan will also address the introduction of a ProSafe-RS, a safety instrumented system to ensure the safety of processes throughout the refinery.
