Yokogawa Australia have been named as the 2008 Frost & Sullivan Asia Pacific Distributed Control System (DCS) Company of the Year for the performance of their DCS across the Asia Pacific region.
The award recognises Yokogawa Australia’s high market share in the Asia Pacific DCS market, high quality engineering support and service, competitive price and strong customer base.
Yokogawa Australia’s ability to provide high value-added solutions that satisfy the evolving needs of customers, to capitalise on opportunities in the Asia Pacific market, to contribute unique capabilities and their involved presence in the Asia Pacific market also contributed to this success.
Yokogawa Australia’s success is the result of their continuous investment in research and development, dedicated personnel and unwavering lifecycle operation support to customers.
Yokogawa Australia’s position will be further strengthened with the newly launched CENTUM VP, which is a new integrated production control system that goes beyond the traditional DCS functions to deliver operational excellence solutions to their customers for achieving a safe, reliable and profitable plant.
Yokogawa Australia had introduced the first DCS, called CENTUM, in 1975 and since then it has passed many state-of-the-art generations. Yokogawa Australia has also launched the 8th generation DCS, CENTUM VP, a new integrated production control system that will become the flagship platform for the VigilantPlant Operational Excellence initiative.
CENTUM VP redefines the role of DCS by going beyond the traditional DCS function of controlling and monitoring a plant. CENTUM VP offers a unified operating environment by integrating plant information management, asset management and operation support.
