Simulation software agreement to drive productivity excellence

Invensys Operations Management has entered into a partnership with Axens, an international provider of technologies, products and services to the refining, petrochemical, gas and alternative fuels markets. Under the terms of the agreement, Axens, based in Rueil-Malmaison, (F) will become a sub-licensor of Invensys Operations Management’s SimSci-Esscor® PRO/II™ software, a steady-state process simulator used to design, analyze and improve chemical processes.

“This partnership will reinforce our presence in the worldwide petrochemical and refining industries, providing users  of Axens’ web-based process operations simulator solution—webPOS™—with the highest level of optimized technology,” said Tobias Scheele, vice president, advanced applications, Invensys Operations Management. “As partners, Axens will embed our PRO/II simulation software into its customized webPOS, outfitting it for steady-state simulation that will help customers achieve productivity excellence.”

Invensys Operations Management’s PRO/II software will be delivered within the framework of the Axens webPOS, which provides operations and process engineers the tools needed to perform several functions, including off-line engineering studies to monitor the impact of operating variables and feed quality on product yields and qualities; evaluating bottlenecks for new feedstock or new product quality requirements; and making strategic and operational decisions regarding production and product distribution. The easy-to-use interface can be accessed through any internet browser, eliminating the need for installation on customers’ equipment and ensuring that the webPOS solution is continually updated.
