Repsol has awarded Tecnatom the design and implementation of the new operations interface for the tanks area of its La Coruña refinery. The scope of this project includes the design of the displays hierarchy and the design of the graphic elements.
Also included is the implementation, installation and testing of the interface at the refinery and the training of the operating personnel. The design will be implemented on the new operations consoles that are being installed at the refinery as part of the distributed control system migration project.
The objective of the project is to improve the operators’ view of the process by means of a design adapted to the working procedures, providing new control variables and new ways of displaying them. In this respect, Tecnatom will apply its wide experience of interface design, adapting its nuclear standards-based methodology to the new process industry standard ISA-101.
