Honeywell has been contracted by Preem AB to modernize the Preemraf Lysekil refinery in southern Sweden with industrial process controllers to triple the capacity of the current controllers at the refinery. Courtesy: HoneywellPreem AB selected Honeywell to modernize the Preemraf Lysekil refinery with Honeywell’s Enhanced High Performance Manager (EHPM) industrial process controllers.

The project should significantly extend the life of the existing control system at the refinery, located in southern Sweden. Preem AB, Sweden's largest oil producer, will use the process controllers to triple the capacity of the refinery’s existing controllers.

Preem AB has an annual refining capacity of more than 18 million metric tons, accounting for 75 percent of refining capacity in Sweden and about one-third of the entire Nordic region. Preem AB is the largest supplier of ultra-low-sulfur diesel fuel in Sweden, with a sulfur content of less than 5 ppm (parts per million), significantly lower than the Euro 4 requirement of 50 ppm.

The upgrade will be completed during planned maintenance at the refinery and will not require any additional downtime. It is scheduled to be completed before the end of the year.
