Hyperion Succesfully Completes Laboratory Infrastructure Project for Hellenic Petroleum
News Nov 21, 2012
Hyperion and the Hellenic Petroleum Group have announced the successful completion of a major upgrade and extension project for the Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) at the three Greek petroleum refineries of the Group. The 10-month long project, also provided the migration of the three systems to a single unified environment with common work processes, data and reporting infrastructure, and was implemented on the Thermo Scientific SampleManager LIMS software platform from Thermo Fisher Scientific, a US-based corporation and Hyperion’s strategic partner in Greece, Cyprus, Russia and Saudi Arabia.
Hyperion Systems Engineering announces the successful completion of an important Laboratory Infrastructure project for the Hellenic Petroleum S.A Group.
Specifically the project, which required 10 months from kick-off to completion, involved the expansion and upgrading of the laboratory information management systems (LIMS) for the three refineries of the company in Greece (Elefsina, Aspropyrgos and Thessaloniki), and the migration of these systems in one integrated environment with shared data infrastructure, work processes and reports.
The project was delivered on the Thermo Scientific SampleManager LIMS software platform from Thermo Fisher Scientific. Thermo Fisher are a leader in products and equipment supporting laboratory operations as well as the global market leader in LIMS technologies and laboratory informatics. Hyperion is a strategic partner of Thermo Fisher Scientific in Greece/Cyprus, Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia.
Dr. Anastasios Danas, Group IT Director of Hellenic Petroleum stated: “ In such difficult times for the global and particularly the Greek economy, with the implementation of projects like this one, our Group emphasizes our commitment to continue looking forward towards growth and development. Hyperion has proved to be a trusted and dedicated partner with experienced engineers who identified all peculiarities or specific issues requiring resolution, and managed to successfully deliver the project on time.”
Dr. Symeon Kassianides, Chairman and CEO of Hyperion stated: “Utilising the experience and knowhow which our engineers have gained over 20 years of Hyperion's worldwide project activity, for the success of companies in our own region is particularly gratifying. It is a true pleasure for us to work with Hellenic Petroleum and we look forward to a continued, stronger and closer cooperation going forward.”
MIT researchers have developed a cryptographic system that could help neural networks identify promising drug candidates in massive pharmacological datasets, while keeping the data private. Secure computation done at such a massive scale could enable broad pooling of sensitive pharmacological data for predictive drug discovery.
The architecture of each person’s brain is unique, and differences may influence how quickly people can complete various cognitive tasks.o learn more, scientists are developing a new tool — computational models of the brain — to simulate how the structure of the brain may impact brain activity and, ultimately, human behavior.READ MORE
