As part of an obsolescence program, CSL made a strategic decision to replace a number of key business critical control systems:-
Onshore Terminal ESD - Functional safety assessment of existing loops resulting in a rationalisation of ESD and DCS functions. Change out of the obsolete ICS system to a PAC8000 ESD and an Emmerson DeltaV. Replacement of critical valve boxes and installation of an11M Video wall.
Offshore DCS - Upgraded from the ABB Masterpiece to System800xA, including modifications to control room layout.
Compressor Controls - Upgrade of the complete compressor control systems by Rolls Royce and CCC. Relocation of the offshore compressor control system to a new control room away from the main compressor.
