Honeywell announces expansion of Russian natural gas plant
April 20, 2017 -- Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) announced that it will expand the manufacture of oil and natural gas solutions for the Russian sector at its Arzamas plant. This will include gas measurement equipment and gas regulators for medium and high-pressure applications.
The expansion will include new production lines, equipment and training at the company’s existing plant in the Nizhny Novgorod region of Russia. The plant is part of Honeywell’s Elster Gazelektronika business.
Elster Gazelektronika will add production lines at the Arzamas plant. The first is Elster gas measurement equipment, including the Q.Sonic Ultrasonic flow meter range for measurement of gas flow and volume, the EnCal 3000 gas chromatograph for gas composition analysis, FC1 flow computers, and metering skid solutions.
Elster’s gas measurement solutions are widely used in natural gas fields, at metering stations and in the transportation of gas by major oil and gas companies in Russia.
A second new line will produce Honeywell natural gas regulators for medium and high-pressure applications. Many Russian natural gas companies use this equipment to control the pressure of gas production and transportation systems.
Honeywell acquired Elster, a German-based provider of gas heating, controls, metering and advanced technologies, in 2015. The company’s Russian subsidiaries include Elster Metronica, a market leader in metering systems, and Elster Gazelektronika, a provider of gas measurement and control products.
