Vopak standardises on digital automation system

Emerson Process Management and Vopak have signed a global framework agreement that sees Emerson become one of the providers of process automation systems and services — including the DeltaV digital automation system — for Vopak’s 80-plus storage and bulk liquid terminal facilities.

Standardising on Emerson’s DeltaV digital automation system will help Vopak meet growing demand for reliable liquid oil, gas and chemical storage and terminal services.

Under the agreement, Emerson will design, configure and implement digital automation systems for all-new automation projects at Vopak terminals, as well as provide support services for new and existing automation systems.
