Neste will be able to rapidly increase production of biofuels after selecting Emerson to support the digital transformation of its expanded refinery in Tuas, Singapore.

The company’s automation systems and software will help Neste deliver high-performance, efficient operations, supporting its plans to increase production by up to 1.3 million tons per annum by 2023.

On top of its existing 1.3 million ton annual production capacity of renewable diesel, the expanded refinery will have additional capacity to produce up to one million tons of sustainable aviation fuel and renewable raw materials for polymers and chemicals.

To ensure the construction of the Neste Singapore Expansion Project is on time and on budget, Emerson is working with Neste to incorporate its Project Certainty methodology, the company’s approach to ensuring successful capital project execution. Emerson will help Neste complete automation system implementation smoothly to bring Neste’s expanded refinery online by 2023.

“By incorporating a digital foundation, advanced analytics and mobile collaboration capabilities into its expanded refinery’s operations starting from its construction phase, Neste is well positioned for long-term operational excellence,” said Ron Martin, president for Emerson’s process systems and solutions business.
