This R&D pilot project aimed to demonstrate the ability to convert waste to BioSNGfor the first time using the existing APP Glasplasma facility and Methanation set. The system needed to be scalable and flexible to facilitate future upscalingand commercial roll out.
Provide Rockwell, Allen-Bradley ControlLogix for control, FactoryTalkView Site Edition Client/Server SCADA developed on the PlantPAx DCS platform and FactoryViewTalk Historian Client/Server historian coupled with Factory TalkView VantagePoint Business Intelligence web based Reports Server.
A cost effective, readily maintainable integrated control system platform that was able to help provide the flexibility needed at the pilot plant stage of BioSNGdevelopment and lay down the control standards for future, larger scale facilities.
Rockwell Automation PlantPAxproved is an effective development environment for the APP application, given its flexibility and scalability. An ideal process control platform that allows seemlessintegration to a wide range of pre-developed “Process Objects” enabling quick, easy and consistent development.
New technology - new thinking!
