Building a refining or processing plant on-site is a daunting, often time-consuming project. Bad weather can interrupt construction, and building in remote or dangerous areas often means a scarcity of labor. Both can draw out projects and drive up costs.

A leader in refining and natural gas technology, Honeywell is offering a unique way to meet this challenge. Honeywell’s modular supply capability builds processing units off-site that can be shipped in parts to the desired location to be assembled on-site. This procedure can save six to 18 months from the project schedule, reducing cost overruns and construction time, while ensuring better construction quality and operational reliability.
Honeywell has delivered more than 1,400 modular process units around the world, designed for eight types of process technologies that cover a wide range of products and processes—including refining, hydrotreating and gas processing. The units are built in an off-site fabrication shop under controlled conditions, then shipped in steel frames ready to be installed.
