EleSy deploys Iconics solution on Transneft’s pipelines

Genesys32 control system monitors country-wide network of 400 pumping stations and 100 tank farms.

Transneft, the Russian state-owned entity that manages the largest pipeline network in the country has deployed a Genesys32 control system from Foxborough, Massachusetts-based Iconics. Installation was performed by systems integrator EleSy of Moscow. The system monitors 400 pumping stations with 1,000 tanks in 101 tank farms.

The centralized dispatch and SCADA system runs on 500 PCs running Microsoft Windows NT and Windows 2000. Overall, some 800,000 digital and analog tags communicate over microwave, land telephone lines and 22 satellite links using a standard TCP/IP protocol. The 2,100 operator screens required to operate the pipeline have an average response time from any point in the system from between three to five seconds. Genesis32 is web-enabled and integrates seamlessly with large network applications.

Transneft has noted a substantial reduction in leak detection time and in dispatching repair solutions. Transneft’s network carries 99.5% of all the oil used in Russia. The system supplies 35 refineries and ships oil products to Europe and China.
