Rotork’s Pakscan™ control system will be used to control hundreds of additional intelligent Rotork IQ actuators at a new petroleum terminal in Malaysia.
Neway Valve (Suzhou) Co Ltd has ordered more than 570 IQ3 multi-turn actuators to be installed on gate and ball valves ranging from 8 to 42 inches at the Pengerang Deepwater Petroleum Terminal. The site is operated by Pengerang Terminals (Two) Sdn Bhd.
Phase two of the project involved the construction of storage and distribution facilities needed to transport crude oil, petroleum, chemical, and petrochemical products to the Refinery & Petrochemicals Integrated Development (RAPID) tank farm, also in southern Johor. The second phase also included the construction of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) facilities, comprised of a regasification unit and two 200,000 m3 LNG storage tanks, as well as the building of berths for the loading and unloading of LNG vessels.
The project’s third phase got underway in May and will see the construction of petroleum and petrochemical storage tanks for medium to long term customers.
Rotork’s IQ3 actuators will be used to control the flow of the products on to carriers which use a deepwater jetty with depths up to 24 metres to carry products to the two sites, and will also ensure the complete isolation of the hydrocarbon products to prevent contamination. The Pakscan network bus system will be connected to seven hot standby Rotork Master Stations.
Rotork Master Station is capable of operating up to 240 actuators across three separate field networks allowing the optimum network to be used in different plant areas.
The end user is already successfully operating IQ3 actuators at six other sites in the Pengerang Integrated Petroleum Complex, a 6,239-acre downstream development in Malaysia.
