Refinery HCU Train II Operator Training Simulator

Client: Honeywell

Location: Thailand

Thaioil Group operates an oil refinery located near Laem Chabang Port in Sriracha, Chonburi. As part of an expansion of the hydrocracker units (HCU), Honeywell were engaged as a vendor to upgrade the refinery DCS.

Part of the Honeywell scope was to build a complete Operator Training Simulator (OTS) as a training package. This involved transitioning from the existing legacy OTS (Shadow Plant) to UniSim.

Synergy's Scope of Work

Synergy were commissioned by Honeywell to produce the Operator Training Simulator (OTS) for the new HCU Train, as well as to generate the training scenarios and test the system in the field.

The OTS was built in UniSim and included the proprietary processes (e.g. hydrotreater, reaction kinetics) from the technology vendor (Honeywell UOP).

The work scope was executed in Indonesia, Singapore and Thailand.

Key Project Achievements

Developed the operator training simulator for the new HCU train process down to 3% accuracy.

Integrated the OTS with spare DCS hardware and compressor control systems and field tested the complete system.
