Neste Jacobs has optimized Borealis PE2 plant’s distillation section with NAPCON Controller

Technology, engineering and project management company Neste Jacobs was selected to optimize the recovery area of Borealis Borstar PE2 plant in Porvoo, Finland. The PE2 plant’s distillation section was optimized with Neste Jacobs’ NAPCON Controller solution. The aim of optimization is to reduce energy consumption and production loss and enhance the plant operability.

“We are very proud to have this opportunity to deepen and develop our relationship with Borealis further. Neste Jacobs as an optimization partner is able to provide know-how of process technologies and has optimized  performance of the PE2 plant’s distillation section with minimum risks”, says Jarmo Suominen, CEO of Neste Jacobs.

In this project the NAPCON Controller (real-time process control software) was first built on top of customer’s process simulator while the actual plant changes were undergoing. Once the process changes were ready NAPCON Controller was commissioned to the real process. This way the full financial benefits from the process control solution were achieved right after the plant start up.

Neste Jacobs has provided real-time optimization solutions already to multiple plants at Borealis. Read more about Neste Jacobs’ NAPCON Controller solutions at www.napconsuite.com

Neste Jacobs maximizes production of Forchem Oy Tall Oil Distillation Plant with NAPCON Controller

Technology, engineering and project management company Neste Jacobs has implemented NAPCON Controller to Forchem Oy’s tall oil distillation plant. Forchem Oy owns and operates a world scale tall oil distillation plant in the city of Rauma on the West Coast of Finland. The main products are Tall Oil Rosin (TOR) and Tall Oil Fatty Acid (TOFA) and the plant is flexible in the sense that different types of Crude Tall Oil can be used as feedstock. The process is mainly based on a vacuum distillation technology originally developed and designed by Neste Jacobs, presently known under the trademark ArxPinus.

Many biochemical processes offer opportunities for substantial improvement in terms of increased production. In spring 2015 Forchem Oy already awarded Neste Jacobs a NAPCON Performance Analysis project for quantifying the benefits of Advanced Process Control (APC). The NAPCON Performance Analysis lasted for two months and Neste Jacobs was able to demonstrate already then a production increase of 9%. After implementation of NAPCON Controller, a multivariable, model-predictive APC, Neste Jacobs could increase production with further 8%.

“During NAPCON Performance Analysis and the subsequent NAPCON implementation we became convinced of Neste Jacobs’ expertise to carry out the production optimization with NAPCON Controller”, says Risto Näsi, CEO of Forchem Oy. “Neste Jacobs has proven their expertise to us in Tall Oil processing technology and engineering and are now combining that expertise with high-level automation technology. We are very excited about these great results, and the attractive payback of the investment in NAPCON. NAPCON has significantly contributed to the 200 000 tons per year capacity that our plant has today”.

“Neste Jacobs is happy to be the preferred partner for bio-industry and Forchem Oy tall-oil production process is yet another great example of the innovative technology co-development partnerships we have. NAPCON Controller is very suitable solution in order to increase production for different industries such as refining, biorefining as well as dairy sector”, says Jarmo Suominen, Managing Director of Neste Jacobs.

Neste Jacobs playing a major role in Asia’s largest biopharma project

Technology, engineering and project management company Neste Jacobs has worked on an assignment to prepare conceptual and basic design for Asia’s largest human blood plasma fractionation plant project.
These phases of the project are now successfully completed to enable the implementation of the project by Sichuan Yuanda Shuyang Pharmaceutical Company.

Neste Jacobs has accumulated vast experience in human plasma fractionation over the last 40 years and the company has in-depth understanding of plasma technologies, production processes, operational aspects and cost levels required for a fully functional human plasma fractionation plant. This highly regulated biopharmaceutical sector sets high standards for the design and operation of the facility. Product safety, regulatory compliance, traceability and robust operability must be built-in during all design steps starting from conceptual and basic design now completed by Neste Jacobs.

“This project demonstrates that we are the world’s leading expert in this very demanding bioindustry field”, says Neste Jacobs CEO, Jarmo Suominen. “We have thorough understanding of various blood plasma technologies and a comprehensive network of partnerships in this field taking us way beyond our competition.”

The plant now goes to the implementation phase, being built in China. “During the conceptual and basic phases of this project we have greatly contributed to our customer quality and functionality of the plant.
Our approach integrates technology, concepts and process knowledge within the automated operations and constructability. This way our customers can be confident about the functionality of the as such complex plasma fractionation plant”, says Neste Jacobs Bioindustries Sales Director, Kari Kaskes. “We are without doubt a number one company in front line development of global bioindustries.”
