Process Software Invensys Strengthens KBR’s Refinery-wide Optimization Solutions
Process software specialist Invensys has signed a multi-year, multi-million dollar contract with KBR to supply the American firm with simulation software. Invesys will provide PRO/II steady-state simulation software to help KBR model its technology, used in both the designs and technology licenses for the hydrocarbon processing industry.
Houston, Texas /USA – “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, Ph.D., vice president, design, simulation and optimization for Invensys. “Our 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.”
Proven Solution for Refinery Industry
In addition, Invensys will provide on-site guidance to assist KBR during transition from the previous model. One of the refining industry’s leading simulation solutions, the 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.
