Honeywell To Automate Finland's First Liquefied Natural Gas Import Terminal
November 19, 2015
Honeywell will provide its Experion® Process Knowledge System (PKS) automation controls and tank gauging systems for Finland's first liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal to efficiently supply natural gas to marine vessels and industrial facilities in Finland, helping to replace other fuels that have higher emissions.
Honeywell’s SmartRadar FlexLine is one of the company’s portfolio of high-end radar tank gauges, for greater accuracy in applications in refineries, tanks storage and petrochemical plants.
The cleaner-burning natural gas will help these vessels and facilities meet emissions regulations in the Baltic Sea and Nordics. Honeywell technology is currently being used in about 40 similar LNG import and export terminals around the world.
Additionally, Honeywell's Enterprise Buildings Integrator (EBI) will connect and power comfort, safety and security systems within the terminal itself, creating a productive environment for workers. With tight integration between Experion PKS and EBI, operators will have one interface to access and manage all process and facility technology, which improves site-wide visibility and efficiency.
"Honeywell's technologies offer Skangas Oy an all-in-one solution that will help make their new facility efficient and productive from day one," said Pieter Krynauw, vice president and general manager of Honeywell Process Solutions' Projects and Automation Solutions business unit. "This fully integrated technology will help the terminal maximize its operations with accurate and on time information, precise measuring technologies, safety and security."
