MRC -- Honeywell introduced Experion Solution Suites (ESS), an end-to-end automation software package for licensed Honeywell UOP units, said Hydrocarbonprocessing.
The ready-now technology offers embedded process solutions within Honeywell’s flagship ExperionPKS automation platform.
“Experion Solution Suites is a fully developed knowledge system which removes the risk of translation from process experts to control experts by embedding UOP Inside Honeywell Automation,” said Chad Briggs, vice president and general manager of Projects and Automation Solutions at Honeywell Process Solutions. “This offering de-risks investments and can increase schedule flexibility by 10 to 12 weeks allowing operators to get trained earlier and ready for any abnormal situation during start up and commissioning.”
Automating engineering labor allows Experion Solution Suites to accelerate project development during detailed design and implementation. This can also reduce the total cost of ownership over the lifecycle of the asset by decreasing hours of manual effort and human error that can lead to unplanned downtime.
Honeywell’s new technology includes pre-configured control design, graphics, alarms, startup/shutdown sequences and process digital twins within scope of UOP licenses. This design minimizes risk for owners to ensure day-one readiness and reduced time to full capacity.
ESS is currently available for Ecofining, Ethanol-to-Jet, Oleflex-C3 (PDH), Aromatic and Naphtha Complex technologies, and will soon be available for most UOP licensed units including Methanol-to-Jet, Carbon Capture and Hydrogen Purification units.
We remind, Litasco, a trading arm of Russia's No.2 oil producer Lukoil, said that it had not received any offer for its refinery in Bulgaria and there were no talks to sell it, amid mounting pressure from Bulgarian authorities. Lukoil has already sold its oil refinery on the Italian island of Sicily, ISAB, to Cypriot private equity firm G.O.I. Energy. Although Lukoil has not directly been targeted by Western sanctions on Russia, the ISAB refinery was affected by an embargo on Russian crude oil as banks were reluctant to finance procurement for a Russia-related company.
