Honeywell is sending an automation solution for the KWH Mirka plant in Jepua, Finland, and is scheduled to be completed before the end of 2013. Courtesy: HoneywellHoneywell announced it will provide a comprehensive automation solution for a new steam production plant in Finland. The contract, awarded by environmental management specialists Ekokem, covers all building automation, process control, and safety systems for a new bubble fluidized-bed (BFB) boiler site.

Under its integrated main automation contractor (I-MAC) approach, Honeywell will design, deliver and install the automation, instrumentation, controls, and wider systems for the plant, including fire detection, video surveillance and access control. The package will be based on Honeywell's Enterprise Buildings Integrator building systems solution, with process control through Experion Process Knowledge Solution (PKS). Other Honeywell solutions being supplied include Safety Manager, its Safety Integrity Level (SIL)-certified integrated safety platform; Digital Video Manager, for video monitoring; and Uniformance Process History Database (PHD). The scope also covers the design and installation of electrification for the process and building, as well as field instruments for the plant.

Once completed later this year, the greenfield site is expected to produce 43GWh of heat annually for Ekokem client KWH Mirka, running on biomass and waste material at its plant for manufacturing of coated abrasives in Jepua, Western Finland. This integrated automation solution is the first of its kind on this type of process, and is well positioned to enable Ekokem to take advantage of increasing demand for such solutions.
