BP renewed a global main automation contractor (MAC) pact with Yokogawa Electric Corporation.

Yokogawa first signed a global MAC services agreement with BP in 2007. The renewed agreement is for 10 years.

The Yokogawa products and services covered by this global agreement include the CENTUM VP integrated production control system, ProSafe-RS safety instrumented system, STARDOM network-based control system, Plant Resource Manager (PRM) plant asset management package, FAST/TOOLS SCADA software, Exaseries productivity solution software, field wireless and other types of field instruments, analyzers, project management and system integration engineering services, and operation and maintenance services.

“BP has been a Yokogawa customer for many years, and this agreement takes our relationship to a new level and underscores BP’s commitment to safe and reliable operations,” said Shuji Mori, a Yokogawa vice president and president of Yokogawa Electric International, a subsidiary that oversees Yokogawa’s IA and control business outside Japan. “This long-term partnership with BP will increase our presence in the oil and gas industry, which is one of the main sectors we are targeting under the Transformation 2017 mid-term business plan.”
