JSC TANECO and ChemTech company (OOO RRT) jointly implement a project at the TATNEFT’s refinery complex to create a digital twin for the CDU / VDU (ELOU-AVT-7) unit. 

The pilot project all optimizes the control of the primary crude oil fractionation installation based on new technologies of machine learning and the artificial intelligence. The ELOU-AVT-7 unit with a nominal capacity of 7 million tonnes per year was selected as a test subject.

Historical data for several years of the installation operation were processed In the course of the project, and a thermodynamic model of the existing production was created, virtual analyzers with the ability to predict the composition of process flows were developed, and the possibilities for optimizing the process regime were determined. Processing and analysis of a large data amount was carried out based on the Azure platform in partnership with Microsoft.

At present, the professionals of ChemTech have been assigned a task of creating a "digital twin" of the installation, which will be the next step to the industrial implementation of the project.

Aiming at further improvement of the efficiency of TANECO's refineries, the companies are ready to expand their cooperation in application of the latest technology for data analysis.
