Updated software improves tank farm and terminal operations

Invensys Operations Management has released a new version of its Off-Sites software suite, featuring a completely revised integration structure between its Blend Optimization Supervisory System, Order and Movement Manager and Movement Automation System. Additional improvements and new capabilities are new user access options to manage permissions and to support single sign on; new management capability for Certificates of Quality (COQ) and handling of movement deviation alarms in the Tank Information System; support for industrial handheld devices for lineup management as part of the Movement Automation System; extended analyzer management functions in the Blend Optimization Supervisory System, and a new graphical pipeline system configurator in the Batch Tracking Manager Module.

Product overview:
Invensys offers a powerful DCS-independent off-sites and terminal operation solution that addresses inventory management and product blending-- two of the key areas contributing to overall refinery, petrochemical and chemical plant performance improvements. The Invensys Off-Sites Solution includes consulting, implementation, integration, training and support services in combination with the feature rich, modular, scalable and configurable Off-Sites Software Suite. Consistent and accurate refinery inventory information is important in optimal planning, scheduling and material loss management. Increased automation and operational performance reduces the cost of operation, while at the same time improves safety compliance and business performance.

Key capabilities:
Accurate tank inventory, order and movement management;
• Off-line blend setup, validation, pre-blend and online optimization;
• Automated and precise tank emissions monitoring and reporting;
• Quality analysis, analyzer management and validation, which address operational quality procedures such as EPA 40CFR80 requirements;
• Modular, scalable, platform independent and sustainable standard software application with integration to existing DCS or PLC systems through open industry standards.
