Honeywell to supply controls to MOL Group in Hungary
The goal of the strategic business relationship is to reduce production costs and increase yields at MOLs plants in central Europe. To do so, Honeywell will implement 10 UniSim Operator Trainer Simulator projects at MOLs Duna and Slovnaft refineries over the next three years; upgrade five existing Honeywell TDC 3000 control systems; and extend the current Integrated Service Agreement by five years, to 2014. Additional projects will be defined each year according to MOLs budgets and business priorities.
MOL, which has worked with Honeywell since 1983, is one of Europes largest oil and gas companies and is the largest company in Hungary in terms of sales. The latest agreement positions Honeywell as a key automation solution supplier for MOL.
Long term strategic partnerships with key suppliers help us strengthen our business, said Laszlo Fekete, senior vice president of Corporate Services, MOL Group. Honeywell has been a trusted supplier for over two decades, and because of the companys deep knowledge of our business issues and needs, it was the ideal partner for this project.
Were in an excellent position to help MOL meet its business objectives, said Paul Orzeske, vice president of Honeywell Process Solutions Europe, Middle East and Africa. Our varied experience with the company positions us to make a positive impact in terms of plant performance and help reduce MOLs operational, procurement and maintenance costs. Ultimately, we expect the solutions we implement to improve product quality and result in higher customer satisfaction for MOL.
