Axens and CORYS enter into a joint collaboration

Hydrocarbons | November 2019

Axens and CORYS have entered into a global exclusive collaboration agreement to develop and commercialize advanced simulation and training solutions for Axens process technologies based on CORYS’ INDISS PLUS® dynamic simulation software.

The CORYS INDISS PLUS® dynamic simulator gives access to CORYS in-house high fidelity models. The dynamic simulator provides an accurate representation of the dynamic behavior of Axens process units for training, troubleshooting, and transient operations support during start-up, shutdown, and unexpected operations.

This framework agreement formalizes a successful and close business relationship between the two companies since many years.

Axens’ exclusive cooperation with CORYS, a leading OTS software supplier, consolidates Axens’ refining and petrochemical expertise and CORYS’ know-how in dynamic simulation and software development into one software suite.  This strategic cooperation provides Axens’ refining and petrochemical licensees access to proprietary kinetic reactor models, training scenarios, and services throughout the project lifecycle from operator training to operations support.

Ralf Gathmann, CEO of CORYS, stated: “We are proud to enter into this strategic partnership to more actively integrate CORYS’ products with Axens allowing our mutual clients to improve their training, safety and operations efficiency.”


Jean Sentenac, Chairman and CEO of Axens, stated: “This partnership strengthens our ability to provide high-quality digital services to our clients, enabling them to improve their operating margin and the reliability of their facilities.”
