Honeywell to upgrade controls at sugar producer in Turkey
SESP is Honeywells core system support program that helps customers keep their automation investments up to date. In addition, SESP provides several support mechanisms that can improve the performance and uptime of automation systems, such as training for engineers and operators, access to Honeywells on-line knowledgebase, and access to the experts in the technical assistance center to assist with troubleshooting.
We selected Honeywell after seeing significant improvements in product quality and production capacity as well as a reduction in production costs with the earlier implementation of Experion, said a representative of Konya Sugars Cumra site management. We also appreciate Honeywells commitment to customer satisfaction. All our requests are handled quickly and seamlessly and we feel like a valued partner.
Honeywells SESP for Konya Sugar will help the company maintain peak operating performance and maximize the long-term value of the companys control systems and installed solutions. The SESP contract is designed to meet the needs of the Cumra site and includes software updates to the installed system to maintain optimum performance. Honeywell will also upgrade Konya Sugars existing Experion to the latest release, Experion R310. This upgrade should allow the site to increase productivity and decrease maintenance costs, with up to 50 percent better return-on-investment over the facilitys lifecycle due to faster access to process information, a decrease in shutdowns, and quicker recovery from process upsets. Finally, the factory will benefit from 24/7 on-site technical assistance.
Maximizing results from automation, control and information technologies is top-of-mind for process manufacturers, especially in the current economy, said Naci Erakin, country leader for Honeywell Process Solutions Turkey. Honeywells support and services help its customers protect their automation investments and migrate to newer technology at their own pace in order to improve their overall business performance.
