Honeywell’s Industry Solutions division recently announced that it will provide the NIS Petroleum Industry of Serbia with a $2.8-million automation solution for its oil refinery in Pancevo, Yugoslavia. The solution includes a TotalPlant system with Honeywell’s new Icon operator consoles; High-Performance Process Managers, Fail-Safe control system, and field instruments with DE communication protocol, as well as engineering, on-site services and project management.

The new automation solution will take advantage of the refinery’s existing Honeywell TDC 2000 process control system and traditional instrumentation, which are currently used in the refinery’s FCC, alkylation, vacuum and crude process units. The order is part of a complete modernization plan for the Pancevo refinery. The automation project is planned for completion by November 2002. The Project Engineering group of Honeywell Italy, assisted by Pancevo refinery personnel, will implement the upgrade.
