TATNEFT is upgrading its oil treatment plants using HollySys equipment
Moscow. TATNEFT has entered into a tripartite cooperation agreement in the area of crude oil treatment process flow automation (UPVSN) units. CJSC Sterh-Intelservis and the Chinese HollySys Company have been the TATNEFT Company’s partners in the deal.
The cooperation of TATNEFT and HollySys has been developing with the participation of CJSC Sterkh-Intelservis, which has been TATNEFT's partner in production process management for almost 20 years. Within the framework of the project, a joint visit to HollySys production sites in China has been organized and the companies successfully completed the implementation and joint pilot tests of the HOLLiAS software and hardware complex at the Kichui installation of NGDU Elkhovneft.
HollySys Company (with international headquarters in Singapore) is known as a dominant provider of automation and information technology solutions in China and Southeast Asia. The Company's products are widely used in industrial plants, high-speed rail transport, nuclear and large power generating systems.
In the course of the equipment updating carried out at Kichuyskaya UPVSN, the expets of OOO TatITneft and CJSC Sterkh-Intelservis carried out activities that allowed implementing a multi-level hierarchical scalable structure with data backup capabilities into a single database at all levels. The wide functionality and flexibility of settings ensure high accuracy of the process control at each stage of the production cycle. Reliability and fault tolerance are characterized by the absence of a single point of failure in the system, leading to the loss of control and the process shutdown. The functions of self-diagnosis and registration of events and actions of operators are implemented.
As a result of successful testing of the HOLLiAS software and hardware complex at Kichuya UPVSN, it has been decided to replicate the solutions of the Chinese company HollySys at other sates of TATNEFT Company.
