Kongsberg Develops Simulator for LNG Plant

Tuesday, September 04, 2007
Kongsberg Maritime's D-SPICE simulation tool has been used to develop and implement a sophisticated Operator Training Simulator for the gas treatment and liquefaction plant at National Grid Transco's (NGT) Glenmavis storage and peak shaving LNG plant in Scotland.

Delivered in February 2007, the D-SPICE based Operator Training Simulator features a dynamic simulation model that covers the Selexol gas pre-treatment plant as well as the liquefaction plant, which is based on the Black and Veatch PRICO LNG liquefaction process.

The inherent flexibility of the D-SPICE system enables it to be used at all stages of a plant's development including concept, design, construction, start-up and operations, and for a multitude of applications including expert studies, engineering studies, DCS checkout simulation, operator training and production management.
