Neste Jacobs, a technology, engineering and project management company and Neste, a refiner and distributer of oil products in the Baltic region and one of the largest producers of renewable fuels, have signed an agreement for Neste Jacobs to deliver Neste a full scale Operator Training Simulator for crude oil distillation unit and gasoline sulphur removal unit of the Porvoo refinery.
The agreement is a continuation of the previously successfully delivered simulator aided learning environments for the largest production line of Porvoo refinery and for several NEXBTL renewable diesel refineries around the world. After the new simulator has been commissioned in spring 2016, it shall be maintained and kept up-to-date with the real plant by utilizing Neste Jacobs’ customer support simulator environment.
“NAPCON Simulator – Operator Training Simulator technology offers possibilities to improve the operating personnel’s competence with a wide range of training exercises. Practicing together with the entire shift in a real-life-like learning facility is highly motivating and very efficient. Training simulators are now an essential part of Neste’s competence management and an irreplaceable tool in securing safe and cost efficient production”, states Neste’s Jukka Kanerva, Vice President, Production of Oil Products.
