Honeywell enhances refining and petrochemical planning solution

Hydrocarbon Engineering,

Honeywell has now released the Refinery and Petrochemical Modelling System (RPMS) 500 that will improve model building and maintenance, case management, and optimization.

The new system incorporates analytics software that is based on the company’s Intuition® process management to better apply planning results.

RPMS also helps refining and petrochemical firms assess their long term investment options and understand the critical differences in potential yield and value of various feedstocks, as well as determining the nest operating conditions.

Key features include support for Windows™ 7/8 64 bit platforms, and tools to simplify migration to the current software version. The new system also provides improved case management, a new graphical user interface, HTMIL base reporting, and improved optimization capabilities.

Patrick Kelly, product director, Honeywell Process Solutions, commented: ‘RPMS Release 500 preserves the rich capability of RPMS while making it easier and more efficient to work with.

‘It also makes it simpler to build and maintain refinery planning models, and generate and review production plans. That helps provide information to help operators make the best production decisions. It includes a web based tool that makes it easier for the broader organisation to access and analyse the information’.
