Taneco and ChemTech create "digital twin" of refinery

TANECO has partnered with ChemTech to implement a pilot project to digitize production, the company's press service said. The project involves creating a "digital twin" of a CDU Unit.

With the help of new machine learning and artificial intelligence technologies, the project is expected to optimize the process of oil fractionation. 

During the first stage of work, several previous years of unit operations data were processed. On this basis, a thermodynamic model of the existing production was created. Virtual analyzers were developed next with the possibility of prediction of compositions of process flows. Such approach allows optimizing the operating conditions of the CDU Unit.

"At present ChemTech specialists are tasked with creating a "digital twin" of the unit, which is the next step towards the industrial implementation of the project," the press service said.

The companies plan to expand cooperation in the introduction of advanced technologies for data analysis and following production optimization.
