Honeywell Systems to Boost Productivity at New Abu Dhabi Fertilizer Plant

Samsung Engineering Selects Honeywell’s Experion PKS and Safety Manager to Increase Production Capacity of New FERTIL Plant by 50%

SEOUL, Korea, April 12, 2011 – Honeywell (NYSE:HON) today announced that it has been selected by Samsung Engineering Co., Ltd. to deliver an integrated process control system for FERTIL-2, a new fertilizer plant being built near Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. Honeywell’s Experion® Process Knowledge System (PKS) and Safety Manager will be used to fully automate the facility and increase output for ammonia and urea used in fertilizer production by up to 50%. Samsung Engineering is engaged by Ruwais Fertilizer Industries (FERTIL), a subsidiary of Abu Dhabi National Oil Company, to develop the new fertilizer plant.

Honeywell’s Experion PKS will help FERTIL-2 to produce ammonia and urea in capacities of up to 2,000 and 3,500 metric tons per day respectively, with production slated to begin in January 2013. In addition, with the implementation of Safety Manager, Experion will improve FERTIL-2’s process-safeguarding protocols such as emergency shutdowns, fire and gas monitoring, and critical application control. FERTIL’s existing plant also uses Honeywell technology.

“One of our primary aims is minimizing the loss of productivity associated with a plant shutdown,” said a spokesperson from Samsung Engineering. “We chose Honeywell because their offerings can minimize productivity losses resulting from shutdown periods. Their experience with the existing FERTIL-1 plant also proved to be an added advantage.”

 “As the fertilizer industry slowly recovers from the recent economic slump, manufacturers like FERTIL are seeing the need for more efficient and cost-effective production,” said Lee Dong Yeol, Asia Pacific EPC Sales Leader, Honeywell Korea. “With the implementation of Experion PKS and Safety Manager, FERTIL should benefit from reduced maintenance costs, improved productivity and increased fertilizer production volumes, which can help boost the region’s food production capacity.”
