The offistes part will be migrated to the latest version of InFusion and will be replacing 18 controllers and DCS of the existing Yokogawa system. The work activities will be mainly the development of typicals, faceplates, graphics, sequences and back-documenting the current graphics, sequences and ActiveX software which are incorporated in the HMI. 
    Because the DCS system supports the oil movement applications, an intensive communication is necessary with the Advanced Applications Division of Invensys which will be developing the MAS (Movements Automation System) and Blender system.
