December 2023

The steam trap monitoring project carried out by BITHERM in the La Rábida Energy Park (CEPSA) won the “enerTIC Awards 2023”. This ambitious project, based on the innovative patented “BiTherm SmartWatchWeb” monitoring technology with LTE wireless protocol (NB-IoT), will reduce their steam consumption by 1,700 Tm/year, with the consequent impact on reducing CO2 emissions, and constitutes the first phase of an ambitious massive monitoring project of steam traps in their Energy Parks, framed in their Positive Motion strategy

July 2022

BITHERM has been awarded 4 contracts (HYUNDAI, SAIPEM, TECNICAS REUNIDAS and NESMA) to supply around 1,200 wireless steam trap monitoring devices for the new MARJAN GAS PLANT project of SAUDI ARAMCO. Previously, BITHERM has already supplied more than 7,000 steam trap monitoring devices to RAS TANURA REFINERY and JAZAN REFINERY (SAUDI ARAMCO).

November 2021

BITHERM has been awarded a new contract from SAIPEM to supply its Steam Trap Monitoring System (STMS), with ISA100.11a wireless protocol, for the MARJAN project, located in the Arabian Gulf, off Saudi Arabia’s East Coast and is one of the largest oil and gas fields in the region. With this new contract, three SAUDI ARAMCO Petrochemical Complexes (RAS TANURA REFINERY, JAZAN REFINERY and MARJAN ) have placed their trust in the patented SmartWatchWeb™ STMS. Highlight that SmartWatchWeb™ is the most internationally awarded, flexible and powerful STMS currently available on the market.

September 2021

BITHERM has been awarded a new contract with REPSOL for the implementation of SmartWatchWeb Monitoring Technology in steam traps in various Process Units at its Coruña refinery. This contract will be carried out on a turnkey basis under the ESCO business model (financed 100% with the energy savings generated by the project) and its objective is to maximize energy efficiency and reliability of steam networks to reduce atmospheric CO2 emissions.

August 2021

BITHERM has obtained a new contract from HYUNDAI ENGINEERING & CONSTRUCTION Co., Ltd. to supply its Steam Trap Monitoring System (SMTV), with ISA100.11a wireless protocol, for the MARJAN project located in the Persian Gulf, off the east coast of Saudi Arabia and is one of the largest oil and gas fields in the region. With this new contract, three SAUDI ARAMCO Petrochemical Complexes (RAS TANURA REFINERY, JAZAN REFINERY and MARJAN FIELD) have placed their trust in the patented SmartWatchWeb® steam trap monitoring system. Highlight that SmartWatchWeb® is the most internationally awarded, flexible and powerful SMTV currently available on the market.

Iberian Lube Base Oil Company, S.A. (ILBOC) won the 2019 ISA100 Wireless Excellence in Automation Award. In doing so, they join a list of distinguished end users including BAPCO, Alcoa, Phillips 66, PETRONAS, NIPPON STEELE and SUMIKIN ENGINEERING.

By winning, ILBOC was chosen from several potential candidates. Their use case was a large-scale ISA100 wireless monitoring system on 904 steam traps and safety valves (possibly the world’s largest current ISA100 installation) by combining multiple applications in a single management platform:

  • Reliability and energy saving. Monitoring of steam leaks and energy efficiency in steam traps.
  • Fight against climate change. Recovery of atmospheric CO2 emissions.
  • Security. Monitoring of dangerous gas leaks in safety valves.
  • Employee health and safety. Detection of toxic gases (H2S) in the environment.
  • Catastrophic Risk Prevention. Detection of explosive gases (hydrocarbons) in the environment.

The facility also included a one-time contract for Energy Services Company (ESCO) with Bitherm that had NO startup costs . All payments to ILBOC’s Bitherm are based on energy savings.

It is the largest steam trap monitoring project carried out in the world to date using the “ISA100.11a wireless protocol”.
