Biofuel production (biodiesel) - modernization and extension of the control system

"iPS Control® became our most important partner for this project. The cooperation between our two companies was excellent and project was completed on schedule. The experience, expertise and commitment of iPS Control® engineers has transformed the facility control system into a modern, easy-to-operate and flexible control and visualization system" - CEO

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Modernization and extension of the control system for biofuel production (biodiesel)

 

RESULTS:

  1. Significantly improved system stability due to the replacement of the SOFTPLC with the PLC
  2. Possibility to use the full implementation of client-server solutions
  3. Enabling remote connection and the analysis of data at the headquarters of a company located on another continent
  4. Increase in the resistance of the whole system to hazards resulting from the nature of the process
  5. Increased efficiency of the system thanks to custom control algorithms
  6. A reduced level of involvement of operators in the biofuel production process,
  7. An inventory of the existing status of the Control and Measurement Instruments and Automation Systems
  8. A revision of the Control and Measurement Instruments and Automation Systems documentation after the inventory
  9. An update and modification of the Control and Measurement Instruments and Automation Systems documentation with respect to the changes introduced into the control system
  10. A modification and expansion of the power supply and control cabinets for the production management system
  11. A replacement of damaged and incorrectly selected power and control wiring
  12. A replacement of the SOFTPLC system with the PLC-based system
  13. New SCADA servers along with the application
  14. A new algorithm for the automatic control of the biofuel production process,
  15. Modifications of the process system in the area of pipelines, tanks, assembly of the Control and Measurement Instruments and Automation Systems apparatus and fittings
