Aspen Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: AZPN), a leading provider of software and
services to the process industries, today announced the general availability of aspenONE®
Engineering and aspenONE® Manufacturing and Supply Chain Version 9 software.
The latest release gives firms
in the Oil, Gas, Refining, Chemicals, Engineering & Construction and other
process industries the integrated, streamlined workflows that help them save
millions of dollars.
Innovations in the aspenONE V9 release help push the limits of asset performance, empowering users to design and troubleshoot with confidence, improve reliability by enabling greater insights into process constraints, on-board new users faster and make process safety consistent and continuous throughout the entire asset lifecycle. AspenTech’s latest software release continues to provide a holistic foundation for operational excellence by giving manufacturers:
Improved analysis capabilities. Insight into key processes enables better, faster and more profitable problem solving.
Better model-based decision support.Consistent, rigorous models drive process improvements that improve margins and reduce capital and operating costs.
Streamlined APC application workflows with an intuitive, ribbon based user interface. The aspenONE Manufacturing and Supply Chain V9 updates include the new Aspen DMC3 Builder that can increase efficiency up to 30 percent by building and deploying all AspenTech APC controllers from start to finish on one intuitive tool. The workflow oriented design builds controllers faster and enables more engineers, preserving process knowledge and increasing APC project efficiency.
Extension of scheduling beyond the refinery gate. Meeting fuel demand while minimizing costs and maximizing
margins is made possible with the ability to evaluate and optimize supply chain
tradeoffs. The new Map Monitor in Aspen Fleet Optimizer (AFO) improves
scheduler visualization with an interactive web-based mapping application,
providing real-time, accurate information that streamlines fuel distribution.
The V9 release of aspenONE Engineering and Manufacturing & Supply Chain software is available immediately. Customers on the aspenONE Licensing Model can upgrade to the new version for no additional cost. For more information, visit http://www.aspentech.com/products/v9-release/.

“We have used the Acid Gas Cleaning and Column Analysis technology in Aspen HYSYS V9 to optimize acid gas treating process specifications and costs in our units, while simultaneously evaluating the impact of process changes on column hydraulics. Repsol intends to introduce the hydraulic plots now available in the latest version of aspenONE Engineering into our standard amine reports as a best practice for monitoring and improving the performance of columns.”
Harendra Singh, Engineering Manager, NPCC
“The new BLOWDOWN functionality within Aspen HYSYS offers a one stop solution for facilities blowdown and minimum temperature studies. It's a step in the right direction from conventional depressuring utility as it uses the industry benchmark Imperial College correlations for estimation of minimum metal temperatures. Many new features, including the ability to model detailed system geometry, are added and the workflow is very user-friendly. Overall, it should enhance the efficiency of our process engineers.”
