CLH Milestones

Among the highlights of Montrel's projects for CLH, we would like to highlight the following:

In the Rota-Zaragoza Oil Pipeline, this was key to the subsequent development of the largest automated oil pipeline network in Europe, where we were involved in both the construction and automation.

Total automation of the storage facilities (tank levels, motorized valves, access control and identification and treatment of effluents). Improvements transferred to all CLH plants.

Integration of the first PLCs, changing the existing wired logic. Led to the automation of all plants.

Design and execution of the new storage plant in Vizcaya, Design and execution of the new storage plant in Vizcaya, the first with the new loading system with local microcomputers in Accuload bay, which allowed the loading of 4 arms, two of them equipped with FAME or ethanol blending, also integrating new remote pumps and pipeline.

This design was extended to all of CLH’s plants, remodelling the existing facilities to adapt to it or carrying it out in the new plants that have been built since then.

Construction of the first outdoor lighting facilities with LEDs in the Almodóvar del Campo and Salamanca plants and Murcia airport. Lighting that is intended to be used in the rest of CLH’s plants in the future.

The first automatic truck loading systems were installed in various CLH plants, when it was still top loading. Change from top to bottom loading, and automation of bottom loading, gaining safety and operability y en operatividad

The first to make this significant modification in the Seville plant, which would lead to the remodelling to bottom loading of all CLH’s plants for light products.

Control systems for
CLH aviation

For several years now, Montrel has offered CLH Aviation a system whose function is the automated control of truck (or refuelling units) loading for aircraft fuel supply. The operator, in this case CLH, can monitor and manage the entire system from an easy three-dimensional visual environment through simple and intuitive operations.

The visual work environment with icons, figures and 3D synoptics, promotes the understanding of all the information and functions that the system offers to the user, resulting in a user-friendly tool.

The functions performed by the Automatic Control System, depending on the configuration, can range from administrative tasks to process control tasks. from administrative tasks to process control tasks.

  • Consulting and technical advice.
  • Special custom designs.
  • Basic and detailed engineering.
  • Certified manufacturing in in-house plants.
  • Installation and implementation.
  • Training, maintenance and technical support.

No existe en cada aeropuerto que opera CLH la misma configuración, sin embargo, en esta especificación se describen y especifican los aspectos generales del sistema.

The system has a remote maintenance service, a service that enables a telephone connection with Montrel offices from where files, data and applications can be transferred to correct or modify functions. Maintenance will even allow the remote operation of applications to solve or debug any system behaviour that is unknown to Control Room staff.

The resources and permissions required to establish and maintain the connection are specific to CLH,as are the maintenance and backup tasks.
