Yokogawa UK, a subsidiary of Yokogawa Electric Corporation, has received an order from the British Pipeline Agency (BPA) for a management and control system for a multi-product fuel pipeline.

This project will replace BPA’s existing pipeline management and supervisory control and data acquisition (Scada) systems.

The pipeline system comprises of three integrated multi-product fuel pipelines that total some 650 km in length and extend from Ellesmere port in northwestern England to the country’s southeastern coast. As the pipelines connect to the City of London’s major airports they are a critical part of the UK’s energy infrastructure.

This order is for Yokogawa’s Enterprise Pipeline Management Solution (EPMS), which will manage functions such as delivery scheduling and oil storage, and the FAST/TOOLS Scada software, which will monitor and control the oil pipelines and related equipment such as compressors.

The EPMS supplements a basic pipeline management system with specific gas and liquid applications that enable a pipeline operator to manage delivery contracts and associated logistics in a time and energy efficient manner. With the Scada system covering monitoring and control, the EPMS will integrate the management of the Scada data.

Encouraged by its success in winning this order, Yokogawa plans to expand its control business in the midstream applications segment, it added.
