Invensys to supply refining simulators for KBR

10.01.2013  |  HP News

Invensys will supply simulation software to help KBR best model its process technology, which KBR will use in design proposals to customers and on technology licenses.

Invensys has signed a multi-year, multi-million dollar contract with KBR to supply its SimSci PRO/II simulation software, the companies announced on Tuesday.

Under the terms of a corporate licensing agreement, Invensys will provide PRO/II steady-state simulation software to help KBR accurately model its process technology, used in both the designs KBR provides to its customers and the technology it licenses to the hydrocarbon processing industry.

In addition, Invensys will provide on-site guidance to assist KBR during transition from the previous model.

"Before agreeing to standardize on PRO/II software, KBR needed new functionality to support them while they transitioned from a previous simulation tool," said Tobias Scheele, vice president of design, simulation and optimization for Invensys.

"Our Invensys developers worked hand-in-hand with the KBR team so that they can more accurately model and quickly deliver their processing technology to the market," he added. "We are pleased to provide these new features to KBR, as well as to deliver hands-on guidance and on-site engineering services to help them make the transition."

One of the refining industry's leading simulation solutions, PRO/II software is a comprehensive simulation solution for process design, revamp and operational analysis. It is backed by more than 45 years of research and development and includes proprietary correlations to model heavy oils.

"We recognize Invensys' strong commitment to the refining and petrochemical industries," said John Derbyshire, president of KBR Technology. "This mutually collaborative relationship and the valuable assistance they have provided during the transition will help us continue to safely deliver key projects for the benefit of our global customers and other stakeholders."
