Rompetrol Accelerates Digital Transformation Strategy with Aspen Technology Software
Targets Significant Reduction in Unplanned Downtime and Maintenance Costs with Advanced Data Analytics
AspenTech’s solutions will be instrumental in improving production
uptime and reducing maintenance costs as part of Rompetrol’s digital
strategy focusing on improving the reliability and availability of its
assets. AspenTech products, including Aspen Mtell and
Yedil Utekov, general manager of Rompetrol Rafinare stated: “Our goal is to achieve ‘one view’ of our refinery operations to bring greater operational efficiency and value. Working with AspenTech we are able to identify failures significantly earlier, reducing equipment damage and unplanned process downtime.”
Identifying weak links in reliability, maintainability and availability
will help the business to compete effectively, while prioritizing
further improvement initiatives and complying with regulations such as
IMO2020 which comes into effect
Utekov added: “AspenTech’s experience in our industry, coupled with the fact that its product portfolio represents one of the broadest footprints of asset optimization solutions in the market, allows us to take this step forward in our digitalization strategy. AspenTech’s APM suite gives us improved asset availability and its advanced process control solution gives us better utilization. We will be able to plan, intervene and save significant production time each year. That combination equates to top line and bottom line improvements for our business.”
Hague continued: “Improving data integrity means the refinery team can now automate its previous efforts with dramatically improved capabilities for reliably recognizing important patterns in operating data. We expect that improvement in analysis will achieve a reduction in maintenance costs, enable them to significantly mitigate production losses and minimize disruptions to its customers.”
Aspen Mtell and Aspen Fidelis Reliability are part of the aspenONE® Asset Performance Management (APM) software suite combining big data, machine learning and process knowledge expertise to maximize performance across the design, operations and maintenance asset lifecycle. Aspen Mtell mines historical and real-time operational and maintenance data to discover the precise failure and anomaly signatures that precede asset degradation and breakdowns, predict future failures and prescribe detailed actions to mitigate or solve problems. Aspen Fidelis Reliability is a reliability management solution that is uniquely designed to take process flows into account, and the impacts of failures and repairs on overall plant performance and revenues.
