AspenTech Unveils aspenONE® Version 8.8 Software to Help Manufacturers Achieve Operational Excellence
Latest Software Release Drives Profitability with Workflow, Performance and Usability Innovations
Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: AZPN), a leading provider of optimization
software for the process industries, today announced the general availability
of aspenONE® Engineering and aspenONE® Manufacturing and
Supply Chain Version 8.8 software. Developed for firms in the Oil, Gas,
Chemicals, Engineering & Construction and other process industries,
aspenONE V8.8 is a powerful software release featuring user-friendly,
streamlined workflow innovations that allow users to minimize capital costs,
improve plant productivity and boost operational profitability.
With this latest release, AspenTech delivers the technology
enhancements needed to achieve operational excellence, enabling leading global
firms to improve margins, increase yields, meet customer demand, gain
competitive advantage and implement innovation across the enterprise.
The aspenONE V8.8 software benefits include:
Energy Cost Optimization with Streamlined Workflows. Enhancements to
Activated Analysis in Aspen HYSYS® and Aspen
Plus® improve performance and usability. Fully integrated cost
estimation, energy optimization, and Heat Exchanger Design and Rating (EDR)
technology brings key information to the process simulation environment,
allowing faster and more accurate optimal design selection earlier in the
conceptual engineering phase. The updated EDR user interface provides easier
access to advanced features of the EDR product suite, aspenONE Exchange and
the direct availability to the HTFS Research Network™.
Improvements via Increased Relief Sizing Capabilities. New relief load
calculation enhancements for heat exchanger tube rupture, fire emergency and
control valve failure expand relief sizing and safety modeling capabilities.
Time to conduct pressure relief analysis is generally reduced by 50
Lower Operating Costs Due to Accurate Methanol
Partitioning Modeling. With the addition of the Cubic Plus
Association (CPA) fluid property package, V8.8 software more effectively
models methanol behavior to accurately predict hydrate formation, improving
flow assurance in pipelines and meeting environmental regulations.
Optimized Throughput and Planning with Complete Suite of Reactor
Models. New Naphtha Hydrotreater and Alkylation models create a
complete refinery reactor and assay management suite from within Aspen HYSYS
Petroleum Refining. For the first time, our customers have a brand new,
complete suite of refinery reactor models available. The resulting flexibility
means all process units can be accurately modeled and optimized, supporting
planning for maximum profits.
Energy Savings with the Extension
of Polymer Modeling to Solids. Polymers can be treated as solids
below their melting points in Aspen Plus, allowing for accurate upstream and
downstream modeling of solids production, including dewatering and drying.
Fast Adaptation of Controller Strategy to Economic
Objectives. The new Smart Tune technology in Aspen DMC3 enables users
to quickly adapt to changing economic scenarios. It lowers the barrier to
controller design and maintenance by providing more insight into controller
strategy, and allows more users to set up and periodically reconfigure the
optimizer more frequently with reduced workflow complexity.
Improved Plant Scheduler Efficiency with Advanced Campaign
Management and Visualization. The New Campaign
Manager in Aspen Plant Scheduler™ enables speedy creation and scheduling of an
ideal production sequence or product wheel. Proven sequencing algorithms
further optimize grade transitions to reduce off-spec production and enhance
The V8.8 release of aspenONE Engineering and
Manufacturing & Supply Chain software is available
immediately. Customers on the aspenONE Licensing Model can upgrade to the new
version for no additional cost. For more information, visit http://www.aspentech.com/products/v8-release/.
Supporting QuotesManolis Kotzabasakis, Chief
Technology Officer and Executive Vice President of Research and Development,
AspenTech“The aspenONE V8.8 software release offers significant
performance and quality enhancements in several technical areas, including
adaptive process control, relief sizing and revalidation, methanol partitioning
in hydrocarbon modeling, and a complete suite of refinery reactor models.
Additionally, our customers will experience improved deployment of these latest
innovations that will enable them more quickly, efficiently and profitably to
design, build and operate their manufacturing plants and supply chains.”
James Holoboff, Managing Partner, Process Ecology“We have tested and validated the CPA equation of state in HYSYS and have found it to be significantly more accurate in predicting methanol partitioning than the methods previously available to us. This enables better prediction of the required methanol injection rate to suppress hydrate formation in pipelines, critical for flow assurance. This is important in ensuring our clients achieve their operational goals, safely and economically."
