New optimization software platform aims at refinery process applications

More powerful SimSci-Esscor ROMeo optimization software from Invensys adds OPC-UA connectivity

10/31/2011


Invensys Operations Management, a provider of technology systems, software solutions, and consulting services, has announced a more powerful version of its SimSci-Esscor ROMeo optimization software. Version 6.0 incorporates four new refinery process models that simulate and optimize reforming, coking, isomerization, and visbreaking units. The software also contains several new capabilities, including OPC-UA connectivity which allows the ROMeo software to communicate with many of the company’s simulation and workforce enablement offerings, including its Dynsim, PRO/II and ArchestrA Workflow software, as well any third-party product that also uses OPC-UA.

“Implementing these standards and including new process models reinforces our commitment to providing the open technology solutions our customers need to achieve operational excellence,” said Harpreet Gulati, director of design and optimization at Invensys Operations Management. “Our SimSci-Esscor ROMeo software allows refiners to improve crude selection, evaluate crude supply, and reliably predict refinery yields and qualities, as well as determine the potential for improving yields of higher-value products. In addition, by integrating it with our Wonderware Intelligence enterprise manufacturing intelligence software, which enhances the ability to analyze real-time plant operating data, the ROMeo software allows plant personnel to make informed decisions that reduce operating costs, increase throughput and maximize profit.”  

Invensys characterizes ROMeo as an integrated online and offline optimization solution for refining, petrochemical, and gas processing industries that handles equipment monitoring, utilities optimization, and material balance in open- or closed-loop mode. It can use or be used with any application that communicates via OPC-UA, including other SimSci-Esscor simulation software applications like PRO/II and Dynsim. Working in a Microsoft Windows environment and strengthened by its integration with Wonderware Intelligence enterprise manufacturing intelligence software, the new ROMeo software release allows users to build upon and unite existing automation and IT systems with technology applications from Invensys, its ecosystem partners and other third-party providers so they function as one, holistic enterprise control system.
