Five coal chemical sites in China to receive process control, safety, simulation software

Honeywell has received a $5 million contract to provide technology to five coal chemical sites owned by Pucheng Clean Energy Chemical Company Ltd (PCEC) in China.

03/26/2012


Honeywell 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.
