Complete migration of the control-command system
Location: Chalampé, France
Launched in 2011 and scheduled to last for a dozen years, it is one of the largest projects launched in the French chemical industry in recent years. A major project to replace the entire control system at this huge 125-hectare site, which produces 40% of the world's demand for "Nylon salt", the base compound for the manufacture of Nylon.
Solvay has migrated the entire current control command and control system (Emerson RS3) to the Siemens PCS 7 solution. To meet this challenge, Siemens joined forces with Actemium, which contributed its know-how on migration methods and its skills in retroanalysis and system configuration.
Implementation of a mixed supervision capable of controlling the RS3 system and the PCS7 system
Among other important investments to ensure its future, our client has undertaken the conversion of its TDI workshop into a new product manufacturing workshop: HDI.
Actemium's job was to migrate the RS3 control and command system to a Delta V Series S DCS. The project represents a volume of 6,900 hours of studies and work.
Activity: control command
Technologies used: Emerson Rosemount, System 3, Emerson Delta V series S, Modbus communication with APS Triconex and APS Siemens PCS7 (Safety Matrix)
After the study of the reliability of the instrumentation at the Les Roches de Condrieu site, our client chose to replace its control system with a YOKOGAWA Centum CS system.
