TraPac drives operational results through automation and digitalization at Port of LA

Date: Wednesday, April 25th, 2018

Time: 4:00pm - 4:45pm

Location: Continental Ballroom 6

Speakers: Randy Vu, Control and Automation Engineer at Hatch, and Mark Jensen, Assistant VP - Equipment & Facility Maintenance at TraPac, LLC

TraPac is on the leading edge in container-terminal automation in North America. In 2017, TraPac deployed a PI System in an effort to consolidate data from the various automation systems and provide improved operational insight. The system has since been widely adopted within the organization and has resulted in a number of benefits: faster root-cause analysis, significant improvements to the equipment maintenance program and enhanced ability to identify optimization opportunities. The presentation will outline the system implementation, identify some of the challenges within the context of the logistics industry, and describe the key analyses and use cases which have been most beneficial to TraPac.

Implementation of Energy Management Information System (EMIS)

Date: Wednesday, April 25th, 2018

Time: 10:45am - 11:30am

Location: Hilton San Francisco Union Square- Continental Ballroom 7-9, Ballroom Level

Speakers: Mina Salama, Systems & Process Control Engineer at Hatch and Jean-Yves St-Onge of ArcelorMittal Long Products Canada GP

One of the challenges that the clients communicate, is the lack of an integrated system to help them consolidate, visualize and understand their consumption of the various forms of energy they use (mainly electricity and natural gas) in effort to reduce their costs and better manage it and optimize it. Hatch has used PI as the platform to implement various Energy Management Information Systems (EMIS) based on NRCAN guidelines to help its clients achieve the objectives mentioned above. In the EMIS, Hatch divided the client’s plants process into a number of Energy Account Centers (EAC) and process areas to achieve more granular view of consumption. Hatch has also leveraged the capabilities of PI Asset Framework (PI AF) to provide a modular and dynamic system that can be easily scaled up or down. In this presentation, Hatch will describe the approach that it used for the design, modularization, development, and implementation of an effective and flexible EMIS to one of its clients.
