Software products for monitoring and design

Plant operations involve complex interactions of many highly specialised units, strict regulations, tight product specifications, and changing economics on a global scale.

Refineries must constantly adjust their operations to accommodate different feedstocks. Optimising a plant in such an environment requires specialised methods and models to maintain margins. Petro-SIM™ and the SIM suite reactor models are the answer; they have earned their reputation as the best simulators for the process industries.

KBC's world-class energy and utilities optimisation software provides power, technical innovation, practicality, and ease-of-use. From monitoring to design, KBC's software products give you the ability to reduce operating costs, lower capital project costs, and optimise energy use.
