Automation in
the Repsol refinery
in La Pampilla (Peru)

Repsol La Pampilla is one of the most important refineries in South America and the first to have automatic loading systems in the continent.

We developed all the engineering, equipment supply, implementation and maintenance of the management and control system of the oil product truck loading facilities and software application to adapt the loading facility to ethanol and biodiesel blending. In addition to this, the manufacture in our workshops and supply of EEx boxes necessary for the EPC electrical connection.

Montrel has developed a system for the automatic loading of light fuel trucks, based on its in-house developments on Microsoft's SQL Server database. By adapting to the refinery's commercial procedures, it allows the fully automatic loading of the various products supplied in the loading facility, both liquid fuels (light and heavy) and asphalts.

  • Data Exchange Module: provides the plant with the ability to receive orders and send loading information telematically.
  • Management Module: enables data system maintenance, also preparing all the necessary documentation for transportation, as well as all the operation reports of the loading facility.
  • Communications Module: manages and controls the various devices fitted to the whole unit via communication lines or network links.
  • Synoptic Module: makes it possible to visualize all the necessary data to supervise proper system operation, including alarm servicing and operation warnings.
  • Process Control or PLC: designed to maintain all the loading interlocks and the control of the different elements that are part of the installation.

Integration for
refinery operation

Due to the characteristics of the refinery, the pumps necessary for the loading facility are included in different Motor Control Centres distributed throughout the facility.

For optimum integration, a standard cabinet has been designed for pump control, equipped with the ET200M decentralised periphery station for a Profibus connection to the system's CPU (315-2DP). These cabinets have enabled easy integration of all pumps in the control room.
