Updated software platform enhances blend plan optimization, inventory traceability, and tank information systems

Invensys Off-sites Software Suite 2.2 adds new updates to improve functionality for terminal and blending applications.


Invensys Off-sites Software Suite 2.2 adds new updates to improve functionality for terminal and blending applications.Invensys Operations Management has updated its Off-sites Software solution, including a new batch-tracking option for its order and movement management module. The newest version further enables accurate and detailed traceability of quality, composition, ownership, and batch-in movement. Additionally, its line management feature has been reworked to provide full line handling with similar detailed information about batches, ownership, composition, and quality actually flowing in lines or line segments. The blend optimization system is enhanced to optimize blend plans for multi-blend header process environments. Additionally, the tank information system has been improved to support redundant level measurements and to provide fully transparent synchronization of TIS alarms with PLC or distributed control systems.

This DCS-independent off-sites and terminal operation solution addresses inventory management and product blending-- two of the key areas contributing to overall refinery performance improvements. Increased automation and operational performance reduces the cost of operation, while at the same time, improves safety compliance and business performance. Integration of the Off-sites Software suite with the company’s SimSci-Esscor ROMeo software offers further optimization of refinery operations by providing accurate crude composition data as real-time input information from off-sites crude feedstock inventory and blending operations.

Key capabilities include:

• 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 to address operational quality procedures, such as EPA 40CFR80 requirements, and
• Integration with SimSci-Esscor ROMeo process optimization software.
