Fieldbus Foundation 2006 General Assembly to be in Shanghai
The Fieldbus Foundation announced that its annual General Assembly will be held in Shanghai, China, Feb. 28 to March 1, 2006. The event will address the needs of the expanding FOUNDATION fieldbus market in China and Asia/Pacific, and will feature an end user-oriented agenda that includes user case study presentations, technical training workshops and tabletop exhibitions.
Shanghai was selected for the 2006 General Assembly because of the high level of fieldbus technology adoption by Chinag the SECCO and Nanhai petrochemical complexes.
According to Fieldbus Foundation President and CEO Richard Timoney, the 2006 General Assembly will highlight the strong demand for FOUNDATION fieldbus-based control solutions across the developing Pacific Rim. He said, “Study results from the ARC Advisory Group show that FOUNDATION fieldbus is now the preferred technology for new fieldbus projects (whether they be Greenfield or retrofit) regardless of their size. In China, Singapore and other areas of Asia/Pacific, FOUNDATION fieldbus is the industry standard technology specified for new plant automation projects.”
Timoney continued, “FOUNDATION technology has made major inroads in China’s fast growing manufacturing industries. Chinese fieldbus projects account for a significant share of all fieldbus installations worldwide. Therefore, Shanghai is a perfect location for this year’s General Assembly.”
The full 2006 General Assembly agenda will be announced in the near future.
