Petroplus orders refinery safety systems from Hima-Sella

Safety systems company Hima-Sella has received an order for the end-of-life replacement of Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) within two processing units at Petroplus’s Coryton Refinery in Stanford-le-Hope in Essex, UK.

The facility is a fluid catalytic cracking refinery, with a throughput capacity of 220,000 barrels per day.

Petroplus is currently replacing SIS equipment that protects the Naphtha Hydrotreating and Continuous Catalytic Reformer processing units.

The SIS is to be implemented using two HIMA HiQuad H51q-HS Programmable Electronic Systems (PES), which are designed to meet IEC61508 SIL2 and will be located in a local instrument house.
