Five Coal Chemical Sites in China To Install Honeywell Technology
XI'AN, CHINA - Honeywell (NYSE:HON) today announced that Pucheng Clean Energy Chemical Company Ltd (PCEC) has selected Honeywell for a US$5 million project to provide technology and expertise to help ensure that one of China's largest methanol-to-olefins (MTO) and methanol-to-propylene (MTP) projects start on-time, safely and efficiently.
Once in full production, the Pucheng Coal Chemical Phase 1 Project will produce 0.7 million tons of olefins and 1.8 million tons of methanol annually. MTO technology facilitates production of high-value petrochemicals from abundantly available coal instead of petroleum or natural gas, and so reduces dependency on traditional crude sources.
PCEC has selected Honeywell's Experion® PKS, Safety Manager, Unisim Operator Training System and Field Device Manager for five coal chemical sites in China. As the main automation vendor, Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) will provide system configuration and site services for plant start-up and commissioning. It will also oversee the implementation of third-party systems integration and engineering.
"In the coal chemical industry, it is important to maximize resources to ensure long-term sustainability and greater economic contributions," said Mr. Fan Liming, General Manager, PCEC. "We will leverage Honeywell's award-winning solutions and global expertise to help us drive greater efficiencies and to ensure safety and reliability. I am confident that Honeywell will help us ensure the success of the Pucheng Coal Chemical Project."
"As one of the world's leading automation suppliers, Honeywell is committed to helping our customers attain their business goals," said Samuel Wu, vice president and general manager, Greater China, Honeywell Process Solutions. "Through strategic use of technologies like ours, PCEC can more effectively use China's rich coal reserves to support the country's growth and development cleanly and safely."
In addition to the Pucheng Coal Chemical Project, Honeywell has already successfully won a number of other MTO/MTP projects within China.
