CASE: Major expansion at Eurotank Amsterdam


Client: VTTI Eurotank Amsterdam
Challenge:



 
In order to meet customer and market demands, ETA decided to expand it’s storage capacity. Therefore 4 new tanks with a total capacity of 150.000 m³ petroleum products were to be built.
Scope:






 
  • Design of P&IDs
  • Hazop and SIS/SIL
  • Detailed E&I engineering
  • Software applications
  • E&I hardware supply and construction
  • Supply of product pumps, tank gauging, instrumentation, control cabinets, ...
Approach:













 
  • A decentralized automation concept was designed that can easily be enhanced across the entire site in the future.
  • For the process control, high-integrity CPUs with integrated safety functionality were used (Agidens standard for safety control in a cost efficient way).
  • The software application was based on the Agidens software library for terminal automation, a library of standard building blocks, based on 40 years Agidens experience in terminal automation.
  • A unique feature within the project is the fully automated pump manifold, consisting of 51 motor operated valves (MOVs), 3 speed controlled product pumps and 1 stripping pump.
Result:



 
The completed solution was based on Agidens’ experience in Tank Terminal Automation and guarantees a state-of-the-art reliable, safe and flexible automation platform, on which ETA can rely on for many more years.
