some complex control problems.
Management and High Performance HMI Course also attracted a large audience from
a number of sites across Australia. This course covers a step by step methodology for
addressing a poorly performing alarm system. The High Performance HMI
course looks at recent techniques for providing operators highly functional and

The 2011 PACE Magazine
Zenith Awards ceremony was held with over 220 attendees from the
Australian and New Zealand Process Automation Industry. The competition
was tough with over 60 project entries across 8 industry categories with a
growing emphasis on innovation and plant efficiency improvements. Our
recent LNG APC project with Woodside Energy won the Oil, Gas and Hydrocarbons
category in addition to the Overall Project of the Year Award.
Here is what the judges had
to say about our entry: “Advanced Process Control was successfully and
appropriately employed to deliver sustained improvement in plant profitability and
operability in a cost effective manner. This excellent implementation of
Advanced Process Control has rewarded the business with exceptional returns.”
