Antea Welcomes Our Newest Client: Chemanol, A Major Saudi Arabian Methanol Complex

Overview

Chemanol is a petrochemical complex located in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The massive facility is one of the most integrated and reliable global producers of methanol and derivatives. As one of the worlds largest formaldehyde producers and the biggest producer in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), their premium grade products demand the highest level of reliability and controls.

Challenge

Chemanol is dedicated to pioneering new technologies to become safer and more efficient. Key to their reliability and sustainability strategy is the implementation of a new Inspection Data Management System (IDMS) and RBI.

Solution

While exploring different solutions, Chemanol identified Antea as the most comprehensive, risk-based asset integrity software solution that supports all equipment types in a single platform. They noted that it is configurable, with seamless integration to CMMS or ERP systems and they were intrigued by Antea’s ability to access their data remotely and visualize their data through 2D Smart P&ID’s, 3D models, and Digital Twin.
