Sigmafine in ISAB refining and power generation

ISAB S.r.l. represents one of the biggest European industrial sites and is made of three interconnected production sites, including Italy’s largest integrated IGCC. An accurate production accounting for this integrated refinery & power generation site is critical to maximizing operational and financial performance. 

ISAB is using the OSIsoft Asset Framework and Sigmafine technology for the daily and monthly production accounting of the refinery. This solution provides a consistent set of accurate reconciled data for flows, material movements, and inventories, including the unmeasured streams, and is fully integrated into ISAB infrastructure, automating data acquisition through dedicated interfaces and allowing the user manual intervention in case of need. Sigmafine supports data diagnostic providing meter and assets data quality indexes, and it is also used to track the crude composition in refineries.  

In the last year, the usage of Sigmafine was expanded also to power generation and utility networks, validating the measurements of these energy-intensive assets. Moreover, Sigmafine successfully covers the need to have accurate and reliable data to be used as a basis for trustable KPIs. This process allows the users to accurately monitor the real site performances and easily identify the measurements and units which are operating outside their targets.
