1-5406 Early identification of control and process design and implementation issues for main ICSS projects by using an MPDS (Multi-Purpose Dynamic Simulator) system


A high fidelity Multi-Purpose Dynamic Simulator (MPDS) was developed to support a number of activities through the different phases of the main BP Quad 204 project. The MPDS provides an accurate representation of a new Floating, Production, Storage,Offloading(FPSO) vessel, a realistic platform in a non-intrusive simulated environment. The use of the MPDS provided a number of benefits for the main project, not just limited to training of operations personnel (Operational, Engineering and Marine Technicians) but also used as a tool to support commissioning/start-up of the main production system. 1-5406.
