About us

Safely handling volatile liquids, accurately tracking inventory turnover and yield, reliably monitoring product quality and emissions, preventing spillages – running a successful tank storage business comes with many challenges. Process efficiency, flexibility, transparency, safety, and availability are the key drivers for profitability in the industry.
The Tank Terminals industry is changing rapidly, and the role of technology in this area has become more important than ever, supporting current trends like unmanned operations, paperless workflows, process simulations and apps which enable all these, along with autonomous vehicle inspections, smart sensors (I-IoT) and big data (AI) analytics.
All these are taken into consideration for our Siemens Terminal Automation and Management System solution.
Siemens TMS is based on ANSI/ISA-95 standard for developing an interface between enterprise and control systems. This standard recognizes different levels of software for manufacturing facilities . The objective of the standards is to provide consistent information and operations models, which is a foundation for clarifying application functionality and how information is to be used. TMS fits in level 3 of these standards, also fulfilling some of the requirements from level 4. Level 3 is related to software functionalities for: operations management, detailed production scheduling, managing events, batch workflows, recipe control and stepping processes through states. The functionalities of TMS are especially focused on digitalizing those tank farm and oil terminal processes described as level 3 functionalities and to enhance facility efficiency by enhancing operational workflows.
The flexible interface via OPC UA enables us also the integration with a 3rd party DCS, additionally to our SIMATIC PCS 7 system.
