Our offer: productivity, efficiency, safety

Real-time monitoring with XHQ

Real-time monitoring with XHQ

XHQ simplifies reporting and eliminates errors by automating most of the data entry for business analytics and process safety. By correlating, aggregating and presenting data, it gives real-time visibility and a systematic capture of the know-how of the refineries’ workforces. Today, an estimated 20 percent of worldwide refining capacity is monitored using XHQ.

air separation

Achieving economies of scale: air separation

Air separation or air compression are the single most important parts of any GTL plant. As a leading manufacturer of rotating equipment, Siemens turbocompressors play a key role in these processes. Air compressors suck in the filtered air and compress it to the necessary pressure before it is cooled and separated into its main components, nitrogen and oxygen, along with a number of inert gases. The gas products can be compressed and fed into a pipeline network for further use.

process instrumentation and analytics

Measuring up productivity: process instrumentation and analytics

Siemens offers a comprehensive process instrumentation and gas analytics portfolio designed to provide process-relevant data directly from the heart of the plant. Thanks to the integrated process control system, this results in optimum productivity and efficiency during plant operation.
