Notable projects include:
- The design, programming and commissioning of 3 gas and liquids plants in the Fort St. John area. These plants utilized Rockwell Automation ControlLogix redundant systems and distributed I/O. This multi-year project involved the design of the program to adopt an overall standard that could be used for future applications and ensure consistency overall the different controllers.
- Replacement of end of life RTU’s for a GE RX3i PAC system. Update to the control programming to adopt standardization across all sites was also part of the project. Efficiencies were designed into the system by creating a template program and maintaining multiple sites from this template rather than have 10+ individual programs.
- The SIL 2 rated safety PLC for the Shell Scotford Upgrader. Part of this project included the configuration and programming of the safety PLC. This system utilized a GE GMR (Genius Modular Redundancy) application.
