Azbil Corporation has revealed that its low-carbon technology has reduced approximately 35,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions in 10 months at a refinery unit of Indonesia’s largest gas and oil company, PT Pertamina (Persero).
This was one of three demonstration projects in Indonesia for the Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM), organised by Japan’s New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organisation (NEDO).
In January 2020, NEDO and Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) announced that the three projects resulted in the issuance of 37,836 tonnes worth of credits, of which Azbil contributed approximately 92 percent, or 34,956 tonnes.
The purpose of the demonstration project Azbil participated in was to improve the operation of power plants at Pertamina’s oil refinery unit in Central Java.
Azbil installed its advanced control technology in the existing control system and achieved coordinated control of multiple power plants by configuring settings without operator assistance, resulting in greatly improved efficiency.
The advantages of using the advanced control technology, unlike a complete retrofit, are completing the project in a short time, showing immediate results, and being cost effective.
In addition to CO2 reduction, the power plants were able to cut energy usage by approximately four percent, leading to a savings of approximately 300 million yen (calculated in terms of heavy oil).
Designed for and deployed in process plants for product manufacturing in order to reduce energy usage and maximise profitability, Azbil’s advanced control technology is increasingly being applied in recent years to equipment at power plants, such as boilers and turbines.
With this core technology, Azbil, an energy management service provider, contributes worldwide to customers’ competitiveness through cost reduction and to improving the environment.
Based on the azbil Group philosophy of ‘human-centred automation,’ Azbil will continue to develop and offer products and systems that help solve problems faced by society and meet customers’ needs.
