Dyno Nobel – DCS Upgrade

We provided Project Management and Construction Management services for the migration of a new plant wide Distributed Control System (DCS) within an operating Ammonia Plant. The project connected over 3,000 individual I/O points and installed more than 300 new instruments and control valves.

Project Details

Multiple control systems were migrated to a single new system. The team created a custom database to aggregate all 3,000+ I/O points and manage the different migrations needed. We implemented rigorous document control systems to record the current project and to organize existing plant documentation. Much of the migration work was done during a round-the-clock plant outage. Following the outage, all plant control loops were documented by installation drawings and loop sheets, facilitating future upgrades, or troubleshooting.
