Valve package for Saudi refinery refit

Rotork is supplying a valve control package comprising 352 IQ intelligent electric actuators with Pakscan 2-wire digital control and In-Vision SCADA software for an upgrade project at an oil refinery on the Red Sea coast in Saudi Arabia. Rotork’s contract is a central part of the modernisation programme at the Saudi Aramco Rabigh Refinery awarded to Canadian engineering consultant SNC Lavalin, which will ultimately see the installation of a Yokogawa DCS to control the plant. The project involves the removal of Rotork ‘A’ range actuators that have been operating for about 20 years and retrofitting the latest IQ intelligent actuators on the existing valves. Equipped as standard with data loggers, the new IQ actuators will enable
refinery maintenance staff to download comprehensive diagnostic operating information, using dedicated IQ-Insight software.
