PDO Birba Control Systems Upgrade FEED

Project Description & Scope of Work


PDO decided to upgrade the old Birba Cluster and started with FEED through Imtech and WPAI for PDO. Abalto was awarded the FEED as System Integrator (SI) for the Automation, Control & Instrumentation for the Control and Safety Systems upgrade. We developed a detailed FEED for the upgrade of the legacy DCS and IPS systems by Honeywell and Yokogawa to a new Emerson DeltaV DCS system to examine the best options available and establish the best execution methodology for the upgrade along with a full bill of materials and cost estimates.
