Yokogawa wins order to supply analyzer house for RAPID project

Yokogawa Electric Corporation announces that its subsidiary, Yokogawa Kontrol (Malaysia), has won an order to supply process analysis system integration (SI) services and advanced solutions for the oil storage facilities that are being built for the Refinery and Petrochemical Integrated Development (RAPID) project in Malaysia. To implement these solutions, the company has been appointed an engineering, procurement, construction & commissioning (EPCC) contractor.

The Pengerang Integrated Complex (PIC) is PETRONAS' largest investment in Malaysia and the PIC consists of RAPID and is supported by its Associated Facilities. RAPID is a project that comprises a refinery, a steam cracker and a number of petrochemical units. The refinery has a capacity of 300,000 barrels per day (bpd) and the steam cracker and petrochemical units will have a combined production capacity of about 3.5 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) of Ethylene, Propylene and C4-C6 Olefin products.

In 2014, Yokogawa Kontrol (Malaysia) was selected as a main automation contractor (MAC) for the RAPID project. After completing the front end engineering and design (FEED) process, the company received orders to supply CENTUM® VP integrated production control systems and ProSafe®-RS safety instrumented systems for the project's Oil Refinery, Naphtha Cracker, and Petrochemical plants. Further to the success, PETRONAS recognized Yokogawa's capabilities and awarded an EPCC package to supply one analyzer house with process analyzers and sampling devices that will control the quality of the Gasoline, Diesel and Kerosene stored at this complex's oil storage facilities. For this project, Yokogawa will also carry out the design, engineering, procurement, installation, and commissioning of advanced tank quality estimator, blending property control, and pipe tracking system solutions. All construction is scheduled to be completed by August 2018, and commissioning will commence the following month. The start of operations is set for 2019.

At Refinery, Petrochemical, and Gas Processing plants, various types of gas and liquid analyzers and sampling devices are used to control quality and protect the environment, and these instruments are installed inside analyzer houses to protect them from adverse conditions, ensure safe operations, and facilitate easy access. The installation of these systems and construction of analyzer houses necessitates advanced knowledge and know-how. In 1997, Yokogawa entered the SI business by acquiring Measurementation, Inc., a U.S. company that had more than 30 years of experience in process analysis systems integration, and in the following year set up an organization in Singapore for the engineering and assembly of process analysis systems. In April 2014, Yokogawa strengthened its global organization by setting up an advanced analyzer center that serves as a global headquarters for this business, and two months later set up Yokogawa Analytical Solutions in Malaysia for assembling process analysis systems and constructing analyzer houses. Yokogawa was able to be designated an EPCC and win this order thanks to the customer's high evaluation of the engineering capabilities that it has employed and refined in recent projects.
