Honeywell helps Indian phenol and cumene plant enhance process operator traning

July 11, 2018 – Honeywell announced its Honeywell Connected Plant technology is helping drive operations at Deepak Phenolics Limited’s (DPL) phenol and cumene plant in Dahej, Gujarat, India. DPL is using Honeywell Connected Plant UniSim Operations to train process operators on safe, efficient and incident-free startups and operations.

Honeywell deployed the operator training simulator (OTS) technology two months ahead of schedule, taking five months from the kick-off meeting to site acceptance test. This was the first time the OTS system was developed on Honeywell UOP’s Q-Max cumene technology, which is based on selective, stable and regenerable catalysts.

Customized process scenarios helped field and console operators to understand and practice normal operations and emergency conditions prior to the commissioning of DPL’s cumene plant. The Honeywell Connected Plant solution is designed to accelerate knowledge transfer by consolidating an entire lifetime of experience into an operator training curriculum.

“Our company has realized significant benefits by optimizing less expensive feed for startup, identifying gaps in controller actions and preparing a smooth start-up procedure with high reliability and minimum hydrocarbon loss,” said Jay Shah, technology lead, Deepak Phenolics Ltd. “The OTS model delivered to the Dahej facility was customized to our needs and is a best-in-class solution for training operating personnel.”

Honeywell Connected Plant is a suite of applications that works to turn data into actionable insights so industrial manufacturers can optimize operations, predict plant failures and reduce unplanned downtime
