Aspen Technology, Inc. has announced that the Heide Refinery in Germany has licensed Aspen Generic Dynamic Optimisation Technology (GDOT™) software to achieve production levels more closely aligned to plan.

The solution will be deployed to help improve refinery margins with real-time, closed-loop, dynamic optimisation increasing the flexibility of operations. GDOT will maximise against operational constraints across the refinery and help to reduce finished product quality giveaway, improving business results.

Juergen Wollschlaeger, CEO at Heide Refinery said: “AspenTech’s GDOT will improve agility in our response to changes in market conditions, such as those we are experiencing right now. It will optimise our production by continuously adjusting targets in the individual controllers within the Advanced Process Control layer so that they align with the economic objectives from planning and scheduling. Ultimately GDOT will optimise profits by minimising finished product quality giveaway and maximising production of the most valuable products.”

Matt Holland, vice president of sales for EURA, Aspen Technology added: “The global energy industry is facing a number of unforeseen challenges today. Operational flexibility for refineries is more crucial than ever in this environment. Our GDOT technology will give Heide Refinery the increased agility and flexibility in its operations that this unpredictable landscape demands.”
