Honeywell to be systems integrator for Kuwaiti Oil & Gas Project
By using Honeywell as the single process control and automation provider, SKE&C will minimize the engineering effort needed to integrate the plant subsystems. Using a single set of maintenance tools and databases, Honeywells integrated approach will also help the end user more effectively diagnose system problems, potentially avoiding unplanned downtime and lost production. Additionally, Honeywell will provide local technical support at the site.
As demand grows, customers are increasingly looking to integrated systems to streamline production while maintaining worker safety, said SangWoo Lee for SKE&C. Honeywell was the best choice for this project because we have seen first-hand how it seamlessly integrates third-party technology to form a cohesive solution. This ultimately leads to faster production and safer operations.
Honeywell will supply its Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS), which allows operators to centrally control and more efficiently manage all processes in the facility. It also enables users to monitor information from critical subsystems, such as fire and gas detection and security devices. Additionally, Honeywells Safety Manager, will be used to safely coordinate procedures such as unit start-up and shut-down. For operator training, SKE&C selected Honeywells UniSim Operations, a process simulation system that helps reduce operator error and improve safety and efficiency by training operators on processes offline. This approach can also lead to quicker plant start-up.
Every plant uses technology from multiple vendors, which is why it is imperative that the technology be able to work together, said SangHyeok Lim, global business team manager for Honeywell Process Solutions Korea. A carefully engineered, integrated system ultimately means better business results because operators work more efficiently, better diagnostics improve reliability, and the environment is safer.
