ABB to support Malaysian biggest crude oil refinery in meeting Diesel Euro-5 standard

September 12/2018

MOSCOW (MRC) -- ABB has won an order from Hyundai Engineering to modify existing and install new electrical systems and electrical network monitoring and control system (ENMCS) at Malaysias biggest crude oil refinery at Melaka, in the southern region of the Malay Peninsula, as per Hydrocarbonprocessing.

Hyundai Engineering was appointed earlier this year by Malaysian Refining Company Sdn. Bhds to deliver the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) turnkey contract to upgrade the existing oil refining facilities to meet the new Euro-5 standard of maintaining sulfur levels to a maximum of 10mg per kg to improve air quality.

ABB has been appointed to design and supply medium and low voltage switchgears, variable speed drives, a direct current (DC) uninterruptible power supply system and an alarm and supervisory system for the project that comprises a new substation and modification to existing substations.

The company is installing its ABB Ability System 800xA based process power manager that will integrate the new and existing electrical systems to provide overall control and monitoring of the electrical network.

"Our solutions will help Malaysian Refining to generate insights that can help them drive performance and productivity improvements," says Zeng Tao, Singapore Hub Manager, ABB.  "With the ABB AbilityTM System 800xA-based electrical monitoring and control system including substation technology, the refinery will be empowered to embrace digital, enabling its operators to improve performance by accessing more accurate information that will better inform decisions. With our local service teams in Malaysia, supported by our competency center in Singapore, the customer can be assured of expert support."

The refinery has been operating since 1994 and houses two refinery trains with a total capacity of 270,000 barrels per day. It is owned by Malaysian Refining Company Sdn. Bhd. wholly owned subsidary of Malaysias state-run oil company Petronas. The refinery complex is operated by Petronas Penapisan (Melaka) Sdn. Bhd. (PPM).

As MRC informed earlier, in March 2018, ABB signed technology agreement with Chinese Yitai Group. A framework agreement between ABB and one of Chinas leading coal producers, the Yitai Group, will bring deeper cooperation in applying digital technologies, solutions, services and expertise to improve performance across Yitais plants.
