SCADA

Varec has extensive experience helping bulk liquid storage facilities automate key operational processes to provide more control over field instruments, increase safety and improve accountability and auditability.

We have built industry specific logic into our FuelsManager® SCADA application to help tank farms, terminals, refineries and other storage facilities enhance their inventory control and terminal automation processes. Our systems engineering and integration services can extend SCADA functionality to support process control by bringing disparate systems together. This helps reduce the complexity of IT, security and other operational requirements. With a fully integrated solution, you can more easily focus on oversight to make timely and accurate business decisions.

SCADA SOLUTION BENEFITS

Deep Domain Expertise

With over 90 years of experience, we understand the oil and gas industry and bulk liquid storage industries extremely well. This level of experience helps to expedite the project planning process and enables us to recommend the right solutions based on each organization’s specific needs.

Proven Industry Solutions

Our products are installed in over 3500 locations worldwide. Whether supporting commercial oil and gas companies or large defense agencies, we understand how to measure, track and account for bulk liquids in storage tanks. This means we can ensure that each customer is provided with a high quality solution based on proven methods based on the right instrumentation, software and process control requirements.

Integrated Communications

We can support a variety of communication protocols with our remote terminal unit (RTU). It helps to simplify integration while also increasing automation and control possibilities. This means that organizations can reduce costs by leveraging the investment already made with the field instruments in use as the RTU can collect and transmit the data into any human machine interface (HMI) software,  distributed control system (DCS) or programmable logic controller (PLC).

Seamless Systems Integration

Our engineering and integration services are built around a flexible approach, experienced engineers and an open architecture of products. All of the products we manufacturer or sell support industry standard protocols, but we also have the ability to develop a customized solution when needed. We integrate FuelsManager® and other HMI programs into critical systems that manage, monitor or control emergency fuel shut off, leak detection, product movement, pump and valve switches, hydrant pumps, load racks, facility gate entry and more. We can also integrate field data with third party business or enterprise resource planning systems to support inventory accounting. By working with our customers, we are able to design the right integrated solution to meet their needs.

Facility Safety

We can program and track virtually any event or activity across your facility. This includes, but is not limited to, tracking product movement, loading operations, alarms, sensors, facility access, ground systems, device status, vehicle identification, and maintenance schedules. This proactive approach means you have near real-time visibility into the critical processes happening across the facility. With access to this data, in a visual, easy-to-use display, you are able to monitor multiple activities at the same time and be alerted when a particular area or system requires attention.

24/7 Technical Support

After deployment or installation of our solutions, our customers have access to our technical support center.  We provide expert advice, troubleshooting and assistance as well as remote systems diagnosis 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our staff of support technicians and engineers are extremely knowledgeable and many have years of hands on fuel operations experience.
