Honeywell To Train Next-Gen Technicians At Largest Vietnam Refinery
July 21, 2014
Honeywell Process Solutions will train technical personnel at Nghi Son Refinery and Petrochemical Limited Liability Company's (NSRP) new 200,000 barrel-per-day complex being built in Thanh Hoa Province, Vietnam. Honeywell will be responsible for helping to prepare the workforce for the refinery's 2017 start-up as well as the ongoing operational and business readiness of the facility.
Nghi Son Refinery will be the country's second, and largest, refinery and will meet about 30 percent of Vietnam's growing demand for refined petroleum products, such as motor fuel and petrochemicals. Vietnam is a net exporter of crude oil, producing more than 350,000 barrels per day of crude oil. But with limited refining capacity, the country currently imports more than half of its refined products to meet demand.
“This refinery will be an important part of Vietnam's energy picture, enabling us to turn our own vast oil reserves into finished products,” said Kazutoshi Shimmura, general director of NSRP.
