Refinery Tankage Terminal Automation

Efficient operations is crucial in allowing refineries to be profitable. Therefore when it came to implementing a terminal automation system for an edible oil bulk storage terminal, CANS was appointed to provide all system works including radar tank gauges, tank temperature transmitters, PLC for valve and pump control, electrical power distribution monitoring, energy monitoring, FDT/DTM asset maintenance management system, CCTV system, SCADA system and the backbone communication network. A combination of communication protocols were used to interface with field devices such as Profibus PA, Profibus DP, Ethernet/IP, Modbus, etc. The system provided by CANS also interfaced with a higher layer terminal automation software provided by a third party. CANS was responsible for the design, engineering, supply, installation, testing and commissioning of all works.

Tank Gauging System

We were selected to design, engineer, supply, install, test and commission a tank gauging system for a palm oil mill. The system consisted of radar tank gauges, multipoint temperature transmitters, a communication gateway and a SCADA workstation. The system also interfaced with existing mass flow meters through Modbus communications, such that offloaded quantities could be reconciled against tank gauging and weighbridge values. Strapping tables and temperature correction tables were also implemented via third party software.
