ExxonMobil is building a new Delayed Coker Unit (DCU) at its Antwerp Refinery site. Magion has been approached by ExxonMobil Antwerp in 2015 to provide the project team that will design and implement the operator HMI (schematics).
The first step in the process is to determine the basic lay-out of the schematics. This is being done with the use of the project P&IDs. Lines are drawn to indicate the separate schematics. Care is being taken that the schematics do not hold too much information, as this will have a severe impact on loading times. After approval of the design from ExxonMobil, the schematics are being implemented using Honeywell Experions Web Display Builder.
After this step the schematics will be submitted to a Factory Acceptance Test (FAT). During the FAT, the display performance is again severely being tested. Operational personnel from ExxonMobil is involved in every step of this project, to ensure maximum acceptance of the system in its totality. Operators are being trained on simulator systems to prepare themselves in advance.
The Site Acceptance Test and Commissioning are planned for 2017, the unit is scheduled to start producing in the fourth quarter of that year.
