Fuels Management Systems
OPG contacted Visual8 to develop a detailed simulation model of its existing coal handling processes and coal pathways. They wanted to evaluate alternative strategies at both the Nanticoke and Lambton Generating Stations.
Marine Terminal Simulator
Visual8 developed a Marine Terminal Simulation System to help Exxon Mobil identify and troubleshoot bottleneck areas within the terminal. The objective was to examine Exxon Mobil’s oil terminal operations and determine capacity limitations under given workload and terminal conditions.
Generic Refinery Tank Simulator
ConocoPhillips wanted a tool which would help them verify capacity constraints and crude throughput, as well as experiment with different delivery schedules.
Power Distribution Simulator
Cemex wanted a tool which would allow them the ability to examine efficiency within their power distribution channels using historical information, real-time data and forecasted demands.
Mine Expansion Capacity Simulator
Xstrata’s engineering team looked to Visual8 to build a simulation tool that would help them clearly understand the impact of proposed changes to the workings of the mine.
