Honeywell process automation system improves efficiency at Russian refinery

July 11, 2016 – Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) announced that its Experion HS process automation system has been implemented at Kuban Oil and Gas Company’s Ilsky Refinery, one of the largest refineries in Russia’s Krasnodar Territory.

The automation system will help the refinery improve process performance and minimize costs, while maintaining a high level of safety. 

Experion HS extends this technology to meet the demands of specific industry segments. It comprises a subset of Experion PKS components specifically packaged to provide a targeted and robust system for small to medium automation projects. The technology impacts the unit operations by streamlining work processes, and providing greater access to key process parameters and data of the refinery. Hence a higher level of operator performance helps meet the increasing demand of refinery’s products in the region.

The Experion HS process automation system meets Kuban’s unit control and data collection requirements, enabling control and monitoring systems to operate with enhanced stability and reliability. The platform includes an efficient engineering environment, providing applications with an enhanced human-machine interface (HMI); a remote control and monitoring capability; and flexible access for data collection.

Honeywell supplied the Ilsky Refinery with a complete set of services for building an integrated production control system based on its hybrid HC900 controllers. The automation solution focuses on the refinery’s AT-5 crude distillation unit, which has a capacity of 1.5 million tons a year. Experion HS supports up to 8,000 input/output (I/O) points, 10 operator stations, and various network servers and nodes at the Ilsky Refinery. The HC900 controllers provide robust logic control and have a modular design to meet the control and data collection needs of a wide range of process equipment.
