Invensys Installs InFusion Enterprise Control System for ExxonMobil
Invensys Operations Management, a global provider of technology systems, software solutions and consulting services to the manufacturing and infrastructure operations industries, has implemented an InFusionT Enterprise Control System (ECS) for ExxonMobil Lubricants & Specialties Company. In a joint venture, Invensys and ExxonMobil successfuly complete the installation of the control systems and get the plant back to full production with no safety incidents.
Installed at ExxonMobil's lubricants plant in Beaumont, Texas, the InFusion ECS will help manage the operating facility, controlling major processes and integrating the existing SAP enterprise resource planning, batch process and final packaging and shipping systems. By making extensive use of Invensys' open, industry-standards-based ArchestrA architecture framework and other advanced technologies, the ECS will apply the principles of real-time process automation across the manufacturing enterprise to improve production flexibility and workflow, as well as address end-of-life issues within the existing control systems.
According to Eric Moorehead, vice president, strategic accounts for Invensys Operations Management, in 2004 ExxonMobil embarked on a global modernization plan to create the lubricant plan of the future. Then, ExxonMobile selected Invesys as their production and integration partner, and until today, the InFusion ECS installation at the Beaumont plant continues its modernization efforts while operating at top performance levels.
As part of its ongoing relationship with ExxonMobil, Invensys is also using its Houston, Texas, Engineering Center of Excellence to incorporate best practices for ExxonMobil in Beaumont and Port Allen, La.
