Terminal Automation System


Terminal automation system (TAS) is designedfor automation of product receipt, storage and shipping processes.

Scope of Automation

  • tank farms;
  • loading racks;
  • jetties;
  • rail terminals.

Actuated equipment

  • stop valves;
  • loading arms;
  • field transit pumps.

Main Features

  • remote control, control over process parameters and automated execution of oil receipt and shipping algorithms;
  • automated oil receipt, storage and shipping processes;
  • automated received/shipped oil quantity control;
  • automated emergency shutdown of valves and pumps;
  • loading arm control and monitoring;
  • automated process equipment protection and emergency shutdown system;
  • automated operation of utilities equipment;
  • independent maintaining of optimum operation modes for process and utilities equipment;
  • detection of equipment failures and operator command execution failures;
  • visualization and registration of the main process variables and parameters characterizing equipment condition during normal operation, maintenance and commissioning;
  • data processing and transmitting to telemetry systems;
  • shipment planning;
  • reporting;
  • HMI / process visualization;
  • event logging.


TAS is built on redundant PLCs, I/O servers, operator workstations and LANs.


  • Versatility

TAS supports numerous standard communication protocols, performs polling of remote devices and exchanges process information with third party systems.

  • Functionality

TAS software enables individual setup of operator workstations to different access level and functionality, using uniform sources of information. It also provides remote access to any operator workstation.

  • Compatibility

TAS is compatible with any third party systems via various communication protocols such as OPC, Modbus, IEC and other.
