Spanish Refinery to Increase Control and Monitoring Capabilities

PHOENIX, Oct. 23, 2003 - Honeywell (NYSE: HON) Process Solutions today announced a contract with Repsol YPF to upgrade its refinery at A Coruña, Spain. The contract includes Honeywell's TotalPlant® Solution (TPS) system with Icon operator consoles, High-Performance Process Managers, a Fail-Safe Control (FSC®) system, as well as engineering, on-site services and project management.

The Honeywell automation solution will enable the Repsol YPF refinery to more accurately monitor and control performance to meet European Union clean fuels standards that will be introduced in 2005. System delivery is scheduled for the first quarter of 2004.

"We chose Honeywell because we knew its technology and service would help our refinery meet the EU's new environmental requirements. But more importantly, we know that we can count on Honeywell to remain a trusted partner for all of our ongoing automation needs," said a Repsol YPF spokesperson.

The project incorporates a complete revamp of the refinery's existing TDC2000 Hiway automation solution, which will be migrated to Honeywell High-performance Process Managers. Honeywell Spain's Project Engineering group will perform the engineering and implementation services for the project.

Honeywell Process Solutions has worked with Repsol YPF since 1978 to automate its five refineries in Spain, all of which are connected and controlled by Honeywell TPS systems.

"Our 25-year history with Repsol YPF has proven a valuable one," said Jerry Walker, Honeywell Process Solutions' Vice President of Europe, Middle East and Africa. "Our combined knowledge, experience and skills will no doubt provide the basis for yet another successful project at A Coruña."
