Vopak Terminal Europoort is one of the biggest petroleum storage and transshipment facilities in the heavily populated Port of Rotterdam area. Oil gets loaded from the tankers to the storage tanks or vice versa, which results in the emission of high concentrations of odour that disperse into the surrounding residential areas.
Better grip on this dispersion is needed to avoid complaints, as these may result in temporary working restrictions, fines or in the worst case permit withdrawal.
By inserting process parameters of the operations into Ortelium, the system provides data intelligence on how the odour disperses into the environment. In case concentrations in residential areas are too high, Ortelium provides recommendations on how to adapt pumping speeds to reduce or even prevent the alert situation. Not only for the current point of time but also for the hours to come.
As a result, pumping processes keep running efficiently while complaints are avoided.
