Veolia Water Technologies & Solutions and OLI Systems partner up
Published by Bella Weetch,
Veolia Water Technologies & Solutions has announced a collaboration with OLI Systems, a leader in water chemistry-based process simulation and electrolyte thermodynamics, to optimise operating performance in the refining and petrochemical industries through the use of OLI's cloud platform that delivers actionable insights to operations teams.
OLI's deep understanding of electrolyte-intensive applications in refining, such as crude distillation units, FCC, hydroprocessing, sour water stripping, and HF alkylation, is informed by a comprehensive chemistry property database, rigorous thermodynamic models, and an expert team of water chemistry professionals – including scientists and engineers. With the new collaboration, OLI will work with Veolia to bring these leading capabilities to Veolia field engineers and experts in refining and petrochemicals to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of chemical treatment programmes by successfully addressing process diagnostics and asset integrity concerns.
"Veolia has a broad portfolio of solutions for the refining industry, and this collaboration with OLI will allow us to provide our customers with a consultative offering to provide enhanced diagnostics, system optimisation, and alternative treatments. OLI's rigorous and accurate electrolyte chemistry insights nicely complement our expertise in end-to-end management of chemical treatment programmes to offer customers a highly reliable solution that will accelerate their business outcomes and realise a rapid return on investment," states Martin Willis, Global Executive Energy & Chemicals, Veolia Water Technologies & Solutions.
Veolia's field engineers, with continuous access to chemical corrosion insights during operation from OLI Cloud Apps, can analyse asset performance more effectively, diagnose root causes rapidly, proactively manage asset integrity, and minimise unplanned downtime.
"OLI Systems is building strategic global relationships to accelerate industrial digital transformation. The democratisation of OLI capabilities with anytime, anywhere access to water chemistry-based process insights dramatically increases the productivity of field engineers across the globe," says Vineeth Ram, Chief Revenue Officer, OLI Systems. "Together with Veolia, we are enabling improved efficiency of refinery and petrochemical operations, while mitigating risk of downtime by optimising chemical treatment programmes and, lowering operations costs."
