petrochemicalHoneywell has been awarded four major contracts worth a combined US$40mn for the Borouge petrochemicals complex in Ruwais, Abu Dhabi

Honeywell will be the main automation contractor (MAC) for the project, providing integrated control and safety systems to Linde and other engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractors.

Mansour Belhadj, sales director of Honeywell Process Solutions - Middle East, said, “With the Gulf region’s share in the global petrochemical market expected to grow to 20 per cent by 2015, there is also a corresponding need for reliable, cost-effective processes, such as the solutions selected for Borouge 3, which can ensure that operational efficiencies are an integral part of the growth process.”

The installation of Honeywell Process Solutions’ control and safety systems such as the Experion Process Knowledge System C300, Safety Manager and the Advanced Process Control system will allow for operational integration, improved production, increased safety and reliability, and maximum operability and profitability, the company said. 

Borouge 3 is the latest expansion of Borouge’s polyolefins plant and will manufacture ethylene, polyethylene, polypropylene and low-density polyethylene (LDPE), alongside associated butane, utilities and offsite facilities.

The real time information management system is expected to provide Borouge 3 with business solutions that streamline, centralise and optimise operations, allowing for further profitability and productivity.
