Honeywell Assurance 360 Services To Boost Performance Of Nakilat’s 14 Lng Vessels

The service management contract includes upgrade of all ships to the latest Honeywell controllers over the next six years

HOUSTON, April 9, 2020 -- Honeywell today announced that Nakilat, a publicly listed global shipping and maritime company, chose Honeywell’s Assurance 360 Performa service management program to drive long-term performance of 14 of its Q-Max liquefied natural gas (LNG) vessels. Nakilat is the largest owner of LNG carriers in the world, with 74 ships in its fleet.

Under the Assurance 360 contract, Honeywell will upgrade each vessel’s legacy C200-based control system to contemporary C300 controllers, allowing engineers to address the most demanding process control requirements. The upgrade will take place in several phases over the next six years, as Honeywell can manage a hybrid system of multiple generations of controllers. The migrations to the new Honeywell control platforms will help extend the life of the ships by 20 years while retaining Nakilat’s intellectual property contained in earlier systems.

To avoid any additional downtime, the complex migrations will be accomplished during the vessels’ 20 days-long drydock times. These migrations are scheduled for 2020, 2023, 2024 and 2025.

“Nakilat is known for operating the largest LNG fleet in the world and embracing cutting-edge technology that ensures the safe, environmentally sound and cost-effective transportation of gas across the globe,” said Nick Parker, vice president and general manager, Lifecycle Solutions and Services, Honeywell Process Solutions. “Honeywell maintaining, supporting and optimizing the system performance of 14 of these ships enables Nakilat to strengthen its reputation for innovation and focus on its core business.”
