FDT Device Integration Strategies

Located near Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, Canada, the Shell Scotford Upgrader facility has refining capacity of 255,000 bpd. This includes the 2011 commissioning of a 100,000 bpd expansion. Because of a tight project schedule and the very cold weather in the region, it was critical that the schedule not slip. After the automation / control system supplier was selected – Honeywell DCS with Field Device Manager (FDM) – the team decided to include smart I/O in order to take full advantage of their intelligent field measurement devices.
