Christo Viljoen, Director, Engineering Solutions Group, Petrofac : “The New HYSYS looks great and is a step ahead in terms of ease of use. The innovations that AspenTech has introduced in aspenONE V8 will help Petrofac optimise designs for customers, reduce project risks and improve the quality and speed of our process engineering work.”
Sriram Ramaganesan, Director, APC, Valero : “The new Adaptive Process Control is game changing technology. We achieved the objective of obtaining quality data without unduly disturbing the process or sacrificing economic objectives. The operators hardly noticed there was a step test going on. I think this technology will greatly improve our ability to work on multiple units in parallel.”
Paul Gallagher, Refinery Planning Manager, Samsung Engineering : “Aspen PIMS Platinum changes the way that planners can make decisions, making it faster and easier. The post solution analysis capability has been significantly enhanced with this new set of features including 2-D or 3-D graphs. Seeing the LP solution space visually is a sea-change in planning analysis and should result in better plans and greater profitability.”
Phil Edwards, Staff Scientist - Process Modelling Specialist, SABIC : “Activated analysis in Aspen Plus V8 makes it very easy to see key performance indicators including capital and operating costs, energy demand, and carbon footprint. This feature maintains awareness of key cost drivers and helps guide better decisions.”
Ingrid Lunt-Rieg, Head of Process Modeling and CFD, Evonik : “We have been using Aspen Plus and SolidSim to model the fluids and solids sections of our processes. The integration of SolidSim into Aspen Plus enables us to design and optimize the entire process with one simulator and consistent physical properties.”
Manolis Kotzabasakis, Executive Vice President, Products, AspenTech : “Our product teams are passionate about developing breakthroughs in process software, finding new ways for customers to optimize their operations. aspenONE V8 extends the boundaries of process optimisation; our customers are very excited by the value already it is already delivering. As we continue to make aspenONE software easier to use, more process industry professionals will be able to work together to make faster and more profitable decisions for their companies.”
