"ROSNEFT: Special Customer":
a business trip to Samara.
'I have joined the Programme «ROSNEFT Special Customer» in 2015. It turns to be really interesting, multitasking and a multifacet work. For myself personally, I single out two main points. In the first place, from a professional aspect it presents an opportunity to communicate with specialists at customers’ sites who have valuable practical experience. In the second place, it is a possibility to travel around Russia — Tuapse, Krasnoyarsk, Komsomolsk-on-Amur — just examples of the cities I visited for the last half a year.’
«ROSNEFT Special Customer» Programme continues to be actively pursued. This way, early July a representative of VSP carried out some meetings with specialists of enterprises which are part of ROSNEFT, as well as with the companies cooperating with ROSNEFT, for example, in the capacity of integrators participating in projects on re-furbishment of end-user sites. In the first place, new developments by the partner-manufacturer Eaton Electric (former MTL Instruments) for intrinsic safety were in the focus of discussions with specialists, covering a new multiplexing system MTL830C, presented to the Russian market early in the year (http://vsp-co.org/01-2019-06.html).
The VSP employee presented to specialists of Samaraneftegas, Syzran OR, SIBINTEK, engineers of the integrator some new MTL solutions:
- a new series of signal conditioners MTL1000;
- new additions to MTL7700 Zener barriers range;
- new additions to MTL4500/MTL5500 isolators range;
- HART multiplexer range upgrade;
- a new series of temperature multiplexers MTL830C;
- intrinsically safe computer terminals GECMA Work Station.
Based on the results of the meeting a plan for further actions was generated aiming at providing the end-user with reliable and effective solution for intrinsic safety for uninterrupted plant operation.
We are grateful to the colleagues for a possibility to discuss prospective tasks on further development of oil refining sector and are actively proceeding with development of business with one of the key VSP customers in Russia — ROSNEFT.
A number of activities are planned for the year in terms of the Programme realisation which we expect would provide for further strengthening of relationship with ROSNEFT.
