Upgrade at petrochemical complex in Algeria

ENIP (Enterprise Nationale d’industrie Petrohimique), the petrochemicals subsidiary of Sonatrach, the Algerian state energy company, has awarded Invensys an USD 2 million contract to upgrade the outdated pneumatic boiler controls and burner management system at the company’s large petrochemicals complex in Skikda, Algeria. This is the first of several similar control projects that ENIP plans to initiate in the coming years at the company’s two large petrochemicals complexes. Invensys’s Foxboro A2 automation system and TUV-certified Triconex triple modular redundant (TMR) Trident safety shutdown system will be used. Invensys will supply, among other things, Foxboro intelligent transmitters, positioners, and analysers; plus on/off and control valves. The new boiler control systems are scheduled for start-up early in 2004.
