Actuation and control upgrade for BP tank farm

Rotork Site Services’ comprehensive extended scope abilities have enabled new valves with the latest IQ intelligent electric valve actuators and Pakscan 2-wire digital control to be installed in a vital upgrade project at a BP tank farm. The BP storage tank farm at Lyon in France consists of nine storage tanks with a total capacity in excess of 60,000cum. The plant’s inlet and outlet valves utilise Rotork electric actuators. BP contacted Rotork with a view to improving the level of reliability and the maintenance service for all the actuators on the site. The Rotork Pakscan P3 digital control system was also supplied in the first phase of the contract and has been commissioned by Rotork service engineers. Following the success of the Rotork Site Services package, Rotork is now negotiating a two-year maintenance contract for the BP site, including the Rotork actuators on the inlet and outlet valves.
