AspenTech to help manage Mediterranean refinery

Feb 08, 2018

Aspen Technology Inc. reported Jan. 26 that Italy-based Saras S.p.A. will deploy Aspen Mtell software to drive reliability in capital and asset operations at its refinery in the Mediterranean that has a capacity of 300,000 barrels per day (BPD).

Saras selected Aspen Mtell as part of a competitive, proof-of-concept process that focused on critical refinery equipment, such as large compressors and pumps. Aspen Mtell won Saras' business due to speed of deployment, early detection of asset failures, avoidance of false alarms and ability to scale the solution system-wide. Saras plans to use sister engineering company Sartec to roll out Aspen Mtell refinery-wide
