Since the mid-eighties, Prometheus has provided the refining and petrochemical industry with specialised consulting and software tools.

We help our clients improve the planning and scheduling processes and highlight better operative conditions or processing configurations.

Dr Alberto Ferrucci, former vice president of the ERG group, founded the company in the mid-eighties to deliver consulting services based on his experience in improving the profitability of private refineries.

The firm provides specialised consulting and software solutions; it delivers its consulting services through a network of specialists in process engineering. An in-house team of analysts and software designers develops the software solutions.

The in-depth knowledge of the dynamics characteristic of the industrial sector reflects in the software solutions offered, making it possible to increase the business’s profitability by supporting the strategic and routine operations planning.

The production structure is modelled through optimisation and simulation techniques, suitably structured to represent the production process’s complexity.
