As one of Europe’s most complex refineries, Heide Refinery looked to optimize its entire middle distillate system to maximize product quality and reduce giveaway. Given recent market volatility, Heide planned to further improve its operational agility to respond faster to changing conditions.
To achieve these goals, the refinery implemented a closed loop, multi-unit dynamic optimization solution that minimizes the gap between planning, scheduling and actual operations. More specifically, unit operations and routings in the middle distillate were modeled to allow Aspen GDOT’s™ real-time optimizer to provide targets for the underlying APC applications, resulting in more consistent, efficient production.
In this on-demand webinar experts from Heide Refinery, Applied Manufacturing Technology and AspenTech share insights on the solution. Learn how Aspen GDOT enabled them to:
