The BPCS performs all the data acquisition, control, interlock functions, which typically include ROV line-ups for material receipt through cross-country pipe-line, storage in appropriate spheres, change-over of spheres, blending operations, mercaptan dosing, dispensing to gantries for unloading into tankers, dispensing to bottling plant etc.
The locally deployed systems support the BPCS for above operations. It may be noted that MICROSYS 3200 ET is designed to withstand harsh environment conditions up to 60oC ambient and being compact in size, can be readily enclosed in Flame-proof enclosures. HMIs provided with sub-systems provide necessary interface for the local operators.
The Safety System acts as an independent stand-alone system and provides final protection layer. Safety System communicates with BPCS over redundant MODBUS–IP Ethernet communication links.
Sub-system at Fire Water Pump House manages the 2 Jockey Pumps and 8 Diesel Pumps. The system performs automatic periodic testing of engines, batteries while maintain the header pressure of Fire Water line.
