Toyo Setal: The EPC Portal Benefits And Project With Petrobras
Last 2012, the Japanese company TOYO acquired 50% of the Setal Oil and Gas (SOG) holdings. Both Toyo and SOG started working together in projects in the same year, with shared responsibilities and joint management. This was the creation of Toyo Setal, a company which now offers its services in the different sectors of the Brazilian market, particularly in the Engineering, Procurement, Construction, and Commissioning, or EPC. Both SOG and TOYO already collaborated in the past, which brings success to both companies before forming Toyo Setal.
Toyo Setal has been answering the demands of its market since its inception. It’s main operations revolve around oil and gas, petrochemical, mining, infrastructure, and energy. It both handles off-shore and local projects and answer the needs of its clients with complete and integrated solutions per contract. The company is also an agent of innovation, which is a must to answer the needs of its clients. One of its most innovative products is the EPC portal, which is a software created to bring benefits to its projects.
The EPC portal is an information management solutions which make system-wide information sharing available in just one platform. Its purpose is to make the dissemination of information around an enterprise easier and time-efficient. With this software, there is greater productivity and integration of information around the company system because it reduces revisions and saves time. The software is also compatible with ISO 15.926, a standard governing data sharing between computer systems. With the effectiveness and the benefits of the EPC Portal, it was awarded the “Innovations in Engineering Project Integration” award during the AVEVA World Summit 2014 event.
Another project that Toyo Setal had worked on is the R1.2 billion Hydrogen Plant Construction project back in 2013 that took place in Rio de Janeiro. Petrobras was the one who granted the construction to Toyo Setal and was expected to be completed in mid-2016. This project is going to be a part of the Rio de Janeiro Petrochemical Complex or Comperj. With this complex, Petrobras is expected the complex to be able to generate 165,000 barrels per day together with their Japanese hydrogen plant.
