Fully automated Control System for Loading and Unloading Gas Gasoil and Gasoline Products

Requirements of the Customer:

1- Monitoring of the inlet and outlet pressures, temperatures
and densities of the inlet and outlet flow to the station as
per the P&ID.
2- Monitoring of the pressure, temperature, density and level
of product in the storage vessels as per the P&ID.
3- The control room provides basic monitoring of the process
and instrument system (pressure switches, flow switches,
flow meter, temp transmitter, level transmitter, level
switches, discrepancy alarm etc.).
4- The programming and the configuration for the
hardware and the software of the control system
shall be based on the operation philosophy.
5- The product metering which is connected to the control
system shall provide measurement of receiving and
delivering quantities. The mass flow meters are supplied
with or without batch controllers. The control system shall
be connected to total No. of 12 flow meters and Batch
controllers via a Modbus serial link. Vendor shall confirm
the type of the communication modules and memory
requirements in able to host the total twelve items and
perform read, log, print-out activities.
Benefit of the customer:
Alarm Handling:
1- Checking data against alarm limits, testing alarm status
inputs and generating unit and station alarms.
2- Interlocking logic with motor starters.
- Daily production report for the product
- On demand production report for individual product.
- Monthly production report for the products
All the reports which may be required shall be to the
satisfaction of TETCO/OWNER based on guidelines
provided and approved by TETCO/OWNER.


-Solution Partner with its expertise was able to perform the correct and approved Hardware Architecture to include Fail Safe CPU 315F-2 PN DP with related Standard and Fail safe IOS. In addition, the system includes Intrinsically safe barriers for the dangerous signals that can be collected from site.

-System Architecture was based on Simatic Manager as development Software to control Siemens S7-300 Families. For SCADA system, WinCC Software did all the requirements in its flexible options implementing alarming functions trending and archiving no to forget cyclice reporting as per client requirements.

REQUIREMENTS of the customer:

-The control System  of Each backup station is equipped by:

-​Independent Control System of Gas Separation Unit

-Independent Control from Different Stations: O2, Ar, N2

-Simplified and Reliable Hardware Architecture

-One Controller with Remote IOs for each station.

-Scada interface for user friendly control system.

- All Hardware for the control is integrated within one control Cabinet to include one Main controller taking care of all control functions regardless of the Inputs Outputs of each station. 


BENEFIT of the customer:

-Flexible and Accurate control system computing complicated and specified tasks to maintain pressure and level within the Gas tanks at very low temperature using built in PID control Blocks.
      Information about implementation :
-Trusted Solution Partnet carry much more advantages than
System itnegrators, therefore client insisted on certified partners
to execute this critical application in Air Separation unit andGas Handling.
-Automate as solution partner used its experience in the hardware design and architecture by implementing the below Technologies:
-S7-300 CPU315-2 PN DP
-ET200s Remote Ios for each station WinCC Flexible Runtime for SCADA Control System installed on Heavy Duty Industrial PC.
-The main reason for using Siemens Products are well known for Sustainability and Reliability in particular S7-300 Family and the CPU315 State of the art product in tis high speed of processing, computing and execution of required tasks in addition WinCC Flexible offers a wide range of useful functions that fits perfectly medium requirements applications at a very reasonable price and convincible ratio of the techno-commercial relation.

In one of the Main Landfills in Lebanon, we have successfully installed a control system for Gaz flares with Gaz analysis system. check the brochure for more info.

Requirements of the customer:

  •  A modular GAZ analysis and flare control system easy to maintain and to operate are a must, with communication feature all time availability with explosion proof capabilities are required reliable, rugged, and robust system to whithsdand all time weather outside installation in a landfill environment.

Short description of the solution:

  • In one of Lebanon's main landfill, AUTOMATE and with the collaboration of the local managing company SUKOMI successfully implemented a GAZ analysis system using SIEMENS BGA's on each landfill well, based on the GAZ analysis it is either sent to the GAZ generators or instead to GAZ flares, automatically closed loop control system.

Implementation by the Solution Partner: 

  • the customer first came to us for reconditioning the existing old system, when we suggested a complete TIA solution, including the BGA from SIEMENS rugged design, high availability and safety were the right solution for this application.

Benefits for the customer:

  • BGA's, PLC and all peripherals from SIEMENS all connected through a PROFIBUS network ensure high integrity, fast diagnostics, fast response accurate system for optimised performance
