Technology, engineering and project management company Neste Jacobs was selected to optimise the recovery area of Borealis Borstar PE2 plant in Porvoo, Finland. The PE2 plant's distillation section was optimised with Neste Jacobs' NAPCON Controller solution. The aim of optimisation is to reduce energy consumption and production loss and enhance the plant operability.
"We are very proud to have this opportunity to deepen and develop our relationship with Borealis further. Neste Jacobs as an optimisation partner is able to provide know-how of process technologies and has optimised performance of the PE2 plant's distillation section with minimum risks", says Jarmo Suominen, CEO of Neste Jacobs.
In this project, the NAPCON Controller (real time process control software) was first built on top of customer's process simulator while the actual plant changes were undergoing. Once the process changes were ready NAPCON Controller was commissioned to the real process. This way the full financial benefits from the process control solution were achieved right after the plant start up. Neste Jacobs has provided real time optimisation solutions already to multiple plants at Borealis.
