Kirishinefteorgsintez's Kirishi refinery will deploy Honeywell Experion PKS and Advanced Alarm Manager during automation upgrade of its gas fractionating unit’s compressor block and the crude distillation unit.Honeywell Process Solutions has announced that it has been selected by OOO Kirishinefteorgsintez,  part of OAO Surgutneftegaz holding, to supply its Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS) and Advanced Alarm Manager system at the company’s refinery in Kirishi, in the Leningrad region of Russia. 

The refinery will install Experion PKS as part of the upgrade process to its gas fractionating unit’s compressor block and the crude distillation unit. The new DCS will help optimize production processes by providing tight integration of production subsystems as well as safety, industrial security, and advanced control systems, enabling plant operators to work more effectively and make more informed decisions.

Honeywell will also deploy its suite of Advanced Alarm Management products to improve plant uptime and safety by reducing losses through a more effective warning and alarm system, helping to prevent accidents at the plant which could lead to financial or environmental losses.

“When choosing to upgrade the facilities at our plant, we saw it as essential that we benefit from a full-range of solutions including anti-surge control, compressor equipment protection, and process safety monitoring. Honeywell’s Experion PKS solution enabled us to realize the benefits of these solutions and ensure we were able to rise to the challenge of automating our process units,” said Vadim Somov, general director, OOO Kirishinefteorgsintez.

“Implementing high-performing control systems helps to significantly increase production efficiency,” said Leonid Sorkin, general manager, Honeywell Russia. When developing Experion PKS, we considered every possible objective our partners would want to achieve by deploying this platform. These include boosting financial and operational indicators, improving the safety of operators as well as enhancing the overall process controllability. We believe Experion PKS delivers the most effective solution to answering these challenges.”

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
