What we achieved
TeQnovation successfully installed 17 InTouch Panel PCs with upgraded version of Wonderware software installed for Petroleum Development Oman – Fahud Compressors and finalized all tests including FAT and SAT in two different phases satisfyingly. The installation improves drastically the operational efficiency of the compressors that can be monitored and controlled using the newly installed InTouch Panel PCs.
What we used
By a thorough and detailed data collection during the site visits and thanks to the great input from PDO team, TeQnovation documented the detailed requirements and generated a project layout for the different phases of the work. The old touch panel PCs and software’s has been replaced using Schneider Electric Wonderware InTouch Panel PC – D Series and Wonderware InTouch Version 2014 R2 software. To avoid any modification on the panel doors, a hardware frame was masterly designed and used in mounting the new InTouch Panel PCs to avoid hot permit to works in these critical installations.
Goal of the Project
The goal of the project was to rectify the issue highlighted by the PDO operation team concerning the monitoring and control of their compressors. Main issues were due to old hardware’s as well as obsolete software versions that could not be supported anymore by later versions of operating systems. After installation of new InTouch Panel PCs and later version of Wonderware software’s, initially highlighted issues have been rectified and additional feature has been configured to keep the system ready for further features to be added based on PDO’s future plans. We will keep on supporting PDO on these panels to make sure the panels are running smoothly for many years to come.
