Axens India Seminar 2018 in Mumbai 07.12.2018
Axens India Seminar is always an important time of the year. For the 2018 edition of this event, the chosen destination was no other than “Bollywood city of India”: Mumbai!
The day started-up with great experience at registration desk, followed by CEO Mr. Jean Sentenac, taking the stage with a welcome address!
The topics of the seminar were refined to suit the compelling markets of India, and were presented by enthusiastic speakers to a highly interested audience.
For the first time, to bring even more interaction to the seminar, a “live demo” on Axens Connect’In™ solution was performed. Connect’In™ is a Software-as-a-Service for real time unit monitoring, which is leading the breakthrough to substantially improve the efficiency of refineries. The subject got maximum attention, as digitalization is of high interest for Indian refiners.
The attendees were also waiting to hear on one of the most-awaited subject of the day: the Integration of Refining and Petrochemicals, and how Axens technology could answer future challenges. According to Mr. Alexandre Javidi, Technologist, Middle Distillates & Conversion at Axens, “investment for bunker fuel is an opportunity providing maximized benefits by reshaping the refining assets and integration with petrochemicals”.
Coming back to the presentations, while discussing about Catalyst Development in VGO HDT Field, Axens India Technical Service Manager, Mr. Aravind Kumar, provided an insight by sharing performance case studies, different challenges of high HDN/HDS, conversion and ULSD production.
The day ended with presentations from Axens new, fully owned subsidiary Heurtey Petrochem Solutions, talking about Furnaces and Heater studies.
The seminar ended with a cocktail dinner, bidding adieu to one more year of success and raising a toast for the continuous trust of our clients on Axens!
