Dangote Group is striving to be the most modern and smart refinery with the latest state-of-the-art technologies like SAP S4HANA 1909.
The Group Executive Director, Dangote Group, Mr. Devakumar Edwin, in a statement on Monday said, “We want our refinery to be not just the largest single-train refinery in the world but also the most modern and smart refinery with the latest state-of-the-art technologies like SAP S4HANA 1909”.
The Head, IT & Business Applications (Refinery), Mr. Ramakrishna Potluri also revealed that the refinery and fertiliser strategic business units have upgraded their SAP landscape to SAP S/4HANA 1909 within six days.
“The upgrade affected all three systems landscapes – development, quality assurance and production environments – and required excellent collaboration between the Dangote internal SAP Centre of Excellence team and the SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud teams.
“Despite being spread across four continents and three time zones, the project teams managed to work round the clock to achieve a full upgrade within six business days.
“The upgrade is important for our Oil & Gas businesses to enable with SAP’s latest IS-Oil industry solution,” he said.
It would be recalled that the organisation is currently constructing the single-train oil Refinery in the Lekki Free Zone near Lagos.
The refinery is expected to process up to 650,000 barrels of oil per day and will also produce 10.4 million tons of gasoline, 4.6 million tons of diesel and four million tons of jet fuel per year.
The Managing Director, SAP Central Africa, Mr. Pedro Guerreiro further hinted that the commissioning of the Dangote fertiliser plant is currently in its final stages in Lagos at the same location as the refinery.
“Once completed, it will be the largest in the world, with capacity for three million tons of fertiliser a year, enough to meet all domestic demand.
“This project requires exceptional levels of support and collaboration and was driven by a highly-skilled and diverse team of specialists”.
“Through an on-going commitment to customer success during all stages of the implementation, the team was also able to help Dangote take major steps toward achieving their intelligent enterprise ambitions,” he said.
