Cellier Activity, of ABB in France, has been awarded the contract to install new blending technologies and its unique process control system at the Marunda Lube Oil Blending Plant (LOBP) in Jakarta, in an effort to drive efficiency and increase productivity. Harnessing its Lubcel™ process control system, ABB will deliver total process control and scheduling software to support the plant’s entire production system, from raw material reception and storage to product dispatch incorporating blending, transfers, filling, and warehouse. 

Optimization of production processes

The supply agreement also includes a new Simultaneous Batch Blender to blend medium and large volumes alongside two new Automatic Batch Blenders to blend small size batches and specialty products. Other technologies such as Drum Decanting Systems, a Viscosity Index Improver dispersing unit, Pigged lines, and Pigged Manifolds will be incorporated. Bert Engbers, Global Account Manager for Shell, ABB Energy Industries said: “With these process solutions PT Shell Indonesia will be able to optimize all aspects of continuous and batch operations at the existing brownfield site, monitoring and managing everything from raw materials use, product formulation, sub-recipes and recipes, resources, inventory logs, production batches and cleaning sequences.”

Tailored to meet the needs of the customer, the ABB process solution has been designed to ensure it works with existing blending tools as well as support the enlargement of Shell’s existing site to meet the company’s diverse and growing portfolio of products. By fully automating its processes, Shell can drive efficiency of its operations, improve availability, traceability and safety, as well as ensure it complies with international product quality standards. The project builds upon a longstanding relationship between ABB and PT Shell Indonesia dating back to 2014.
