Yokogawa launches CENTUM VP
07 February 2008
On February 7, 2008, Yokogawa Electric Corporation launched the flagship platform for its VigilantPlant Operational Excellence initiative in Europe.
The Japanese company unveiled the system in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, claiming the 8th generation of the CENTUM series, CENTUM VP, will go beyond the traditional DCS function of control and monitoring.
Yokogawa said CENTUM VP would take the VigilantPlant initiative to its next evolutionary step, integrating the three excellence solutions into one Operational Excellence platform.
The new system, successor to the CENTUM CS 1000/CENTUM CS 3000, is claimed to offer clear backward compatibility and consistency with previous CENTUM systems. Furthermore, CENTUM VP is designed to go beyond the traditional DCS function of controlling and monitoring a plant by integrating plant information management, asset management and operation support functions.
Satoru Kurosu, senior vice president of Yokogawa’s Automation business headquarters, said: ‘CENTUM VP is designed to empower real-time decision makers at all levels of a plant’s operations. A significant improvement in information efficiency enables our customers to enhance both plant safety and business agility.’
