Axens (Rueill-Malmaison, France; www.axens.net) announced that it has signed a contract with MOL Group (Budapest, Hungary; www.molgroup.info) for its Danube Refinery to develop a cloud-based real-time monitoring unit as part of Connect‘In, a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), developed by Axens and supported by OSIsoft technologies. The project was encouraged by MOL's ability to implement OSIsoft innovations successfully in the past. The main goal of the agreement is to support the MOL refinery with an intensified technical assistance service for review of catalyst performances and unit profitability. Connect'In, supported by OSIsoft PI Cloud Connect, automatically collects data from the refinery, with the highest standards of cyber security, and converts them into normalized KPI (key performance indicators) using Axens' high-fidelity models in real-time. Results are displayed through a collaborative web interface equipped with dashboards and projection tools enabling to accelerate the decision-making process.
