AUTOMATION & CONTROL
Automation Design for a safe and efficient operating tank farm
The Control System (CS) is responsible for the full operational functionality of the Fuel Depot. Parts of this functionality deal with all technical processes required for the normal day to day operations, including but not limited to receipt, storage and delivery of the aviation fuel. The CS interfaces with other subsystems such as Tightness Control System, Tank Gauging System, Emergency Shut Down, Fire Alarm System and Security/CCTV system.
The proposed general system architecture reflects the experience of hansaconsult (HC) as the designer and supplier of automation systems for airport refueling facilities throughout the world, especially at New Athens International Airport (design, engineering and TCS® installation by HC, delivery by third parties), Munich Airport (design, engineering and TCS® installation, delivery by HC) and Dortmund Airport (design, engineering and delivery by HC).
Control and monitoring of the plant are usually carried out at three locations:
