Yokogawa Electric Corporation announces that its subsidiary, PT. Yokogawa Indonesia, has received an order from PT. Chandra Asri Petrochemical Tbk. (CAP) to replace the legacy distributed control system (DCS) and safety instrumented system (SIS) at the company’s ethylene and polyethylene plant in Cilegon, which is in western Java’s Banten Province.
This CAP facility is Indonesia's premier petrochemical plant, incorporating world class, state-of-the-art technology and supporting facilities. The plant’s naphtha cracker produces high quality ethylene, propylene, crude C4, and pyrolysis gasoline (Py-gas)x1 for the Indonesian as well as regional export markets.
Yokogawa Indonesia has also received an order from the CAP subsidiary PT Styrindo Mono Indonesia (SMI) to replace the legacy DCS at the company’s styrene monomer plant, which is about 40 km from the CAP plant and has an annual output of 340,000 MT.
For these projects, Yokogawa Indonesia will provide the latest CENTUM VP DCS and ProSafe-RS SIS along with engineering, installation, commissioning, and engineering and operator training. These projects are expected to take 10 months from start to finish.
Key factors in the CAP Group’s selection of Yokogawa for these replacement projects were the high reliability and global track record of Yokogawa’s CENTUM VP and ProSafe-RS platforms, the close project support made possible by global cooperation between Yokogawa Indonesia and Yokogawa Engineering Asia Pte. Ltd., which is responsible for the Yokogawa Group’s operations in Asia, and its global maintenance and service network.
Ichsan Gafar, a director at Yokogawa Indonesia, says, “I think that the customer assessed and scored Yokogawa as the best long-term partner of the CAP Group, considering the strength of our products in terms of reliability and expandability, the operability of an integrated DCS and SIS solution under the Yokogawa brand, and our local engineering, project execution, and after-sales support capabilities. Through our implementation of these DCS and SIS projects for CAP and SMI, we will strengthen our relationship with the CAP Group. We aim to win contracts for their other projects as well and to expand our share of the Indonesian industrial automation market.”
