Off-site facilities operate more efficiently
MUMBAI, INDIA: Major oil and gas industry firms around the world are using Honeywell’s recently launched BMA R400.1 solution to improve safety, reliability and operational performance. Honeywell’s recent blending and movement automation projects include refinery off-sites, terminals and large tank farms worldwide.
Announcing this a press statement said, Honeywell’s BMA applications provide complete planning, execution, and performance monitoring of refinery and terminal blending and movement operations, and integrate with either Honeywell’s Experion® Process Knowledge System (PKS) or other vendors’ distributed control systems (DCS). BMA applications help to ensure that off-site facilities operate more efficiently, with improved safety and reliability.
“With applications installed at hundreds of sites globally, representing over 25 percent of the world’s refining capacity, Honeywell is the leader in off-sites management,” said Sanjit Shewale, global business leader-off-sites management for Honeywell Process Solutions. “Over the past year, Honeywell’s BMA global project sales have been very strong. These projects encompass both new and expanding refinery blending applications and demonstrate significant growth in movement automation as companies seek improved safety and reliability of off-sites operations.”
An emerging trend seen in a number of BMA projects, which is expected to continue, is the use of wireless technology to reduce implementation costs while still achieving the same benefits, especially in locations where off-sites automation is low.
Honeywell has over 30 recently-completed and in-progress BMA projects worldwide. The customers represent broad segments of the BMA sector in every region of the globe, and range from major oil refiners to mid-size refiners and independent operators.
