Invensys Completes First Phase of MAC Contract for New Russian Refinery
Multimillion Dollar Agreement Sees Company Implement Integrated
Control and Safety Systems for Yaysky Refinery in Kemerovo
LONDON -- (Marketwire) -- 02/26/13 -- Invensys Operations
Management, a global provider of technology systems, software
solutions and consulting services to the manufacturing and
infrastructure operations industries, has successfully completed the
first phase of a main automation contractor project at the new Yaysky
oil refinery in Kemerovo, a city in Russia's Kuzbass region.
Under the terms of the multimillion dollar agreement, Invensys, as
the main automation provider, has supplied complete control and
safety solutions, including field instrumentation, process analytics
and valves. Included in the project are the company's Foxboro(R)
distributed control system, Triconex(R) emergency shutdown systems
and Foxboro measurement and instrumentation solutions, as well as new
Foxboro visualization and configuration tools. The company will also
provide comprehensive installation, engineering, development, support
and on-site training services. During the execution of the project
Invensys played a key role in the selection of suppliers and
contractors, managing the supply chain and improving the efficiency
and transparency of pricing to optimize the total cost of ownership
of the project.
NefteKhimService JSC, a Russian company and investor in the Yaysky
project, selected Invensys as the MAC after an open-vendor bid in
"We were looking for an experienced partner, someone who could help
us reduce risks, lower costs, accelerate startup and drive profitable
performance sooner, and we believe Invensys can deliver," said Alexey
Medvedev, IT director of NefteKhimService JSC. "Invensys were our
partner throughout every stage of the project, showing great
competence and responsibility as the general contractor for the
applied technical solutions, as well as managing all the work within
the project. Their real-time control, safety and instrumentation
solutions will help us meet the strong, growing demand for gasoline
and diesel fuel in the Kuzbass region without compromising our
commitment to safety, quality and sustainability."
"We are extremely pleased to serve NefteKhimService JSC on this
important project, and we are totally committed to their success,"
said Boris Muratov, general manager, Invensys Operations Management,
Russia. "Along with the industry's broadest portfolio of open
technology solutions, Invensys has more than 100 years of global
experience completing massive projects for companies large and small.
The Yaysky project builds on our abilities to help refineries around
the world become safer and more efficient, as well as strengthens our
strategic position in Russia's growing, dynamic downstream market.
"For this project, Invensys went beyond the traditional
vendor-supplier scope of work and focused on the priorities and needs
of the customer in the broadest sense of the word. This was truly a
joint effort that involved teams from across the complex, from
studying optimal technical solutions at the development stage to the
hard work at the delivery, installation and commissioning stage. We
look forward to working with NefteKhimService JSC to help Yaysky
become a world-class refinery."
The Yaysky facility is designed to process 3 million tons of crude
oil per year. After start up, it will annually produce more than
400,000 tons of gasoline and 1.5 million tons of diesel fuel,
satisfying more than 60 percent of the fuel consumption needs of
Russia's Kuzbass region, located in southwestern Siberia. The
successful first phase sets up the refinery for the next two phases
of implementation, which will expand production to 6 million tons of
crude oil per year and increase oil conversion to 93 percent.
