Honeywell to provide automation, safety systems to Canadian natural gas plant

Aug. 1, 2016 -- Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) announced it will provide full automation and safety systems and serve as integrated main automation contractor (I-MAC) for a new liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility being built in Eastern Canada to process North American natural gas for international export. Honeywell technology is currently being used in more than 40 similar LNG import and export terminals around the world.

Located on the eastern shore of Canada in Nova Scotia, Pieridae Energy’s Goldboro LNG project will include a natural gas liquefaction terminal and facilities for LNG storage and marine export. The facility will be able to process 10 million metric tons of LNG a year and have a storage capacity of 690,000 cubic meters. Startup is expected in 2021.

The announcement was made at the 2016 Honeywell Executive Forum on Mega-Projects in Morristown, NJ.

Honeywell is responsible for designing, delivering and installing the distributed control systems (DCS), safety instrumented systems, fire and gas systems, and operator training simulator (OTS) for the project. Honeywell will also be responsible for helping Pieridae integrate all plant infrastructure to the business enterprise systems.

Specific key deliverables include a number of Honeywell's innovative and patented technologies including LEAP, Honeywell's lean project execution services; Experion® PKS (process knowledge system) Orion with distributed systems architecture (DSA); Experion Security Integrator; Fault Tolerant Ethernet (FTE); universal process I/O and safety I/O; Safety Manager fire and gas systems; UniSim operator training simulator; DynAMo® advanced alarm management software; Uniformance® Suite PHD data historian; and the Intuition Executive operational insight platform.

By leveraging these integrated solutions, Honeywell will help reduce risks and minimize potential schedule delays for both Goldboro LNG and its engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor during the facility startup.
