Valve management system reduces risk

Valve operation specialist Sofis, whose US offices are located in Kentucky and Houston, recently installed a solution to reduce the risk of incorrect valve line-up at Oiltanking Malta. The valve management system significantly reduced the operational and financial risk exposure.

Valve interlocks and a key management system from Sofis were combined with Oiltanking Malta’s existing distributed control system. This mitigated the risk of incorrect valve line-ups to the maximum possible extent. An additional benefit of the new system is that operators can now perform multiple valve line-up procedures simultaneously.
