Applications for refining deliver proven solutions for operator training and controls optimization.

Effective Operator Training

Train operators on infrequent and dangerous process occurrences. Prepare inexperienced operators and transfer knowledge from old to new operators. Practice successful operation of production units.

Control System Optimization

Test new control system configuration before startup without impacting the unit. Explore new control strategies and operating modes. Optimize and tune control strategies without affecting operations.

Reduce Operations Risk

Review HAZOP findings and support PSA processes. Conduct risk analysis without affecting plant operations. Validate operating procedures. Prepare OSHA PSM and quality documents without process impact.
