ABB Process Performance was responsible for adapting the process controls to the real world setting, by tuning of the control logic parameters and control structures.
During the start-up phase, the team had one position on-site reporting to the start-up lead supported by an off-site team.
After the main start-up milestones were reached, the mode of support moved to being off-site based with sporadic on-site trips.
Customer Concluding Statement
“We were very satisfied with the Process Performance Start-up Services provided by ABB. Onsite support during the most hectic start-up phase was very helpful and time saving. The services from ABB was a entral part of our successful on time achievement of the first oil milestone. In retrospect, we see that we should have involved the ABB experts earlier to transfer work load from onsite to onshore.”
