Realistic Operator Training Simulator at Fauji Fertilizer

Since 1982, Fauji Fertilizer Company (FFC) has provided premium quality fertilizer products to their commercial customers. As one of the largest manufacturers in the country, the operation produces 551,000 metric tons of urea and 445,500 metric tons of diammonium phosphate (DAP) annually. Production facilities encompass three plants.

An Opportunity for OTS 

In 2011, when it came time to commission a new Foxboro DCS, Fauji decided to add an Operator Training Simulator (OTS), as part of a training program that it hoped would:
  • Decrease the risk of major operational incidents 
  • Reduce startup and downtime 
  • Increase the plant’s on stream factor 
  • Improve efficient handling of emergencies 

Fauji chose SimSci OTS as the main software for its simulation and training solution.

In my next series of posts, I will be talking about how Fauji was able to utilize the SimSci OTS to create a realistic training solution that benefits its newly hired and experienced plant operators. In the meantime, you can click on the following links for more information.
