Hengli Intelligent Plant selects Aspen Technology software to accelerate digitalization

November 25/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Aspen Technology, Inc., a global leader in asset optimization software, has announced that Hengli Petrochemical (Dalian) Refinery (Hengli), a leading Fortune Global 500 refinery in China, has chosen Aspen DMC3TM software to accelerate digitalization at its integrated refining and chemical plant in Dalian, China, as per Hydrocarbonprocessing.

With this deployment, Hengli can achieve operational speed and sustainability via patented adaptive process control technology in pursuit of its intelligent plant strategy.

Ricky Li Xianyou, vice president, Hengli, said: "To strengthen the companys industry leadership, Hengli has selected Aspen DMC3 software as part of the companys holistic approach to future proof its intelligent plant concept. Factoring in solid ROI projections, this partnership with AspenTech will enable Hengli to maximize the companys performance across the asset lifecycle and achieve operational excellence via asset optimization."

Jack Ding, Country manager, China, Aspen Technology, added: "With a focus on a strong customer relationship, we are pleased to partner Hengli in the companys journey to accelerate digital transformation. Prior to the deployment of Aspen DMC3 software, Hengli was already ahead of the innovation curve by capitalizing on a suite of aspenONE solutions that can maximize productivity across the asset lifecycle."

Aspen DMC3 accelerates optimal deployments in simultaneous process optimization and testing. This enables the plant to adopt a scalable and sustainable approach via patented adaptive process control technology. Process manufacturers can achieve real-time agility and maximize performance in a seamless yet robust manner.

As MRC reported previiously, in early November 2020, Invista and Hengli Petrochemical (Huizhou) reached agreement to license INVISTAs P8 PTA technology for two purified terephthalic acid (PTA) lines. These two lines will be installed at Xiachong, Daya Bay, Huizhou City, Guangdong province, China. The kick-off meeting was successfully concluded on October 23, 2020, between Hengli, Invista and CTCI (the engineering contractor).

PTA is used to produce polyethylene terephthalate (PET), which is used in the manufacturing of plastic bottles, films, packaging containers, in the textile and food industries.

As per MRC' ScanPlast, calculated consumption of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) reached 52,71o tonnes in September 2020, down 27% compared to the same time a year before. Total consumption of PET in Russia in the nine months of 2020 reached 530,750 tonnes, down 22% than the same indicator last year.
