Invensys Awarded Quality Challenge Coin From Bechtel Parsons

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - May 9, 2013) -  Invensys, a global provider of technology systems, software solutions and consulting services to the manufacturing and infrastructure operations industries, has received the Bechtel Quality Challenge Coin, recognizing its work for the Bechtel Parsons Blue Grass Joint Venture at the Blue Grass Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant (BGCAPP) project. Bechtel Parsons Blue Grass is the systems contractor for the BGCAPP, which is being built to safely and efficiently destroy a stockpile of chemical weapons currently in storage at the Blue Grass Army Depot in Kentucky. The plant will destroy 523 tons of munitions containing blister and nerve agents.

In July 2006, Bechtel Parsons Blue Grass contracted Invensys to provide a facility control system to help operate the BGCAPP. Under the terms of the agreement, Invensys is supplying comprehensive control and safety systems and software solutions based on its InFusion® enterprise control technology, including its Foxboro® visualization and configuration tools, Foxboro® distributed control system, Wonderware® InTouch® HMI software and Triconex® TUV-certified safety and critical control systems. Invensys is also providing training, configuration and engineering services, as well as commissioning and plant operations support.

To help confirm the systems' reliability and functionality, Invensys tested the entirety of the plant's equipment, including its servers, workstations and control processors, under multiple operating scenarios, including equipment failure, equipment recovery and other operating situations. The company also simulated operator interactions under these scenarios, ensuring their ability to retain control of the plant. Results of the tests were then used to enhance the functionality of the company's Foxboro visualization and configuration software.

After the systems were successfully tested, Bechtel Parsons Blue Grass management presented Invensys with a Bechtel Quality Coin to acknowledge the Invensys team's commitment to quality and dedication to overcoming unique technical challenges in providing the Facility Control System.
