Honeywell Selected for Automation, Security Systems for Expansion of Major Liquefied Natural Gas Terminal
June 26, 2015
Honeywell’s automation and security systems will help Freeport LNG Development, L.P. (Freeport LNG) expand its southeast Texas liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal into a world-class liquefaction and export operation. This expansion will give Freeport LNG 13.9 million tons a year of export capacity.
Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) will be the integrated main automation contractor (I-MAC) for the expansion project. In this role, HPS will be responsible for designing, delivering and installing the automation, instrumentation, controls, and safety and security systems. The unified approach will be critical in helping the project meet operational and business readiness goals on day-one of startup.
“The expanded I-MAC capabilities that Honeywell brings to this project – and specifically our new LEAP™ project services – will help Freeport LNG start up this terminal expansion faster and within budget,” said Pieter Krynauw, vice president for HPS’s Projects and Automation Solutions business. “Honeywell’s latest technologies, project delivery capabilities and expert services will create a highly integrated infrastructure to boost the plant’s profitability.”
