Neste Jacobs delivers new versions of NAPCON solutions to Borealis Porvoo cracker

Technology, engineering and project management company Neste Jacobs has finished the upgrade of Borealis Porvoo Cracker Dynamic Real-Time Optimization (DRTO) and Advanced Process Control (APC) with NAPCON Optimizer and NAPCON Controller. Borealis cracker unit's existing APC and DRTO were upgraded to the latest version of NAPCON Controller and NAPCON Optimizer. The new solutions were implemented on virtualized hardware with a DCS integrated web-based user interface. The user interface includes a modern visualization of APC functions, for example a real-time performance indicator, notification of active constraints and an easy "one-button" to turn on each APC.

"We are pleased to see once again that our NAPCON solution has provided remarkable financial benefits to our customer. We are also happy that our good collaboration with Borealis continues and we are able to deliver continuous added value to our customer.  NAPCON solutions offer, in addition to production optimization, also great savings through improved energy efficiency", says Jarmo Suominen, CEO of Neste Jacobs.
