Neste Engineering Solutions has performed a dynamic simulation for Kiilto Oy
Neste Engineering Solutions has performed a dynamic simulation for Kiilto Oy, a producer of chemical industry products. The purpose of the dynamic simulation was to get a better understanding of how Kiilto's production facility's polymerizing reactor behaves in possible disturbances. The production facility is located in Tampere, Finland.
The most common disturbances and their consequences were reviewed in the simulation in addition to assessing how preventive measures affect the operations of the production plant. Simulation helps to understand how different preventive measures ensure the safety of the production plant. The project has now been finalized with good results and further actions will be planned on these results.
- We are very happy with our cooperation with the Neste Engineering Solutions team. They took care of the project very professionally and we received very informative and useful results from the simulation in order to further develop our operations, says Mikko Viljanmaa, Vice-President, Kiilto Oy.
- These simulations can be utilised for different possible scenarios so that companies can be better prepared for these situations and plan preventive actions, tells Patrick von Essen, Managing Director, Neste Engineering Solutions.
