PT Yokogawa Indonesia has received an order from PT. Chandra Asri Petrochemical to replace the legacy distributed control system (DCS) and safety instrumented system (SIS) at its ethylene and polyethylene plant in Cilegon, in 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) 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 tons.
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.
