Honeywell to Provide Control System for Beijing Gas Group in Pipeline Project to Combat Air Pollution

PHOENIX, Arizona, February 18, 2002 — Honeywell [NYSE:HON] Industry
Solutions has received a $5.5 million order from Beijing Gas Group for a control system for a gas distribution network being built to serve metropolitan Beijing, China, the nation’s capital.

The pipeline project is intended to make gas available to replace unwashed coal currently used as fuel by both commercial and residential users, with the objective of substantially reducing air pollution over the next several years. Beijing Gas Group serves an area with a population of more than 10 million people.

Honeywell will supply PlantScape® SCADA, its supervisory control and data acquisition solution that incorporates leading-edge, open-system technologies. PlantScape SCADA will give Beijing Gas Group the ability to integrate and unify the diverse subsystems and components (both hardware and software) intended to be part of the installation. The order also includes engineering and project services, training, maintenance and integration of third-party specialty applications and equipment. The Beijing project is the first in an anticipated series of similar projects to reduce air pollution in many of China’s larger cities.

Terry Sutter, President of Honeywell Industry Solutions, said, “We are delighted to be able to participate with Honeywell technology and expertise in this important effort designed to help clean the environment for the Beijing people and its visitors. We are hopeful we will be able to extend this activity to China’s other major cities as well.”

Funding assistance will be provided by the Asian Development Bank.
