Pemex Gas y Petroquímica Básica has selected ABB's System 800xA High Integrity to provide integrated control and safety for its Pajaritos marine terminal in Coatzacoalcos, Mexico. System 800xA will be used for process control and compressor interlock applications in the cryogenic terminal, which receives, liquefies, and transfers ammonia, propane, propane/butane gas, and ethylene.

The order includes System 800xA extended automation for process control; compressor protections, anti-surge control and vibration monitoring; instrumentation; uninterruptible power systems, and fiberoptics networking. Centralized and local supervision will also be provided through System 800xA engineering and operation stations. When the project is completed, System 800xA application will control the six process areas in the terminal, where products are handled and prepared for shipment to Pemex's customers.

Pemex reportedly selected System 800xA because it offered a tightly integrated control and safety solution, and the most advanced technology for the application. This project is one of several that ABB is currently implementing for Pemex. ABB says it was the only vendor that fully complied with all PEMEX technical requirements for this project. The estimated delivery date is December 2005.

System 800xA High Integrity is a complete, scalable, TÜV-certified, IEC 61508- and IEC 61511-compliant safety instrumented system (SIS) that spans the entire safety loop, including SIL-rated AC 800M controllers, field-input devices, I/O modules, and field actuators.
