November 8, 2019
IChemE 2019 Global Awards


The IChemE Global Awards 2019 has announced CPFD Software as Highly Commended in both the 2019 Industry Project Award and the 2019 Innovative Product Award. Thank you again to Viva Energy Australia for their willingness to share their success story with Barracuda Virtual Reactor® at the Geelong Refinery. CPFD Software is honored to have received these commendations.

"This project delivered an excellent outcome, giving us confidence that specific hardware changes would restore the operation of our Cracker to the level we expect – which it did. Our team’s collaborative approach brought together CPFD’s expertise and our refinery knowledge. I regard the use of CPFD as a key step in the digitisation of our refinery activities, and it is great to see this project having an impact on the way other refineries are operated around the world.”   - Thys Heyns, Viva Energy's General Manager of Refining

CPFD Software’s proprietary technology, Barracuda Virtual Reactor, is now deployed on 6 continents allowing successes in petrochemicals, gasification, power generation, materials processing and clean energy industries, enabling a sustainable future.
