ZhanJiang Chenming Pulp and Paper Co. expanding pulp production

New facility in Guangdong, China, will produce 700,000 tpy, driven by Honeywell integrated control system.

03/25/2011


ZhanJiang Chenming Pulp and Paper Company has selected Honeywell Process Solutions to supply the integrated control system for its new 700,000 ton-per-year pulp facility in China’s Guangdong Province. The integrated solution – which includes an array of Honeywell’s technologies for process industries – is expected to help Chenming increase its production while promoting delivery of high-quality paper products.

Honeywell will provide its Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS), Da Vinci quality control system (QCS) and OptiVision manufacturing execution system (MES) as part of the agreement. Additionally, Honeywell has agreed to provide its Safety Manager solution to manage safety subsystems at the site’s power generation and chemical facilities.

ZhanJiang Chenming is part of Shandong Chenming Paper Holdings Ltd., and specializes in a variety of paper products such as light-weight coated paper, duplex press paper, writing paper, news press paper, and paperboard. The new facility is expected to be commissioned in the first half of 2011.

“Fast and efficient production is important for today’s pulp and paper mills, but even more critical is the ability to maintain excellent product quality,” said Li Wei, assistant general manager of ZhanJiang Chenming and the Zhenjiang project manager. “Honeywell’s offerings are proven to improve quality and productivity while reducing energy costs and waste.” The company expects that the new systems’ advanced process control capabilities will help it reduce additive costs and the amount of rework required for coatings and colors. Additionally, OptiVision will simplify order scheduling and overall workflow management.

The Da Vinci QCS system also enables online coating measurements, one of Chenming’s key requirements for this project. The system provides a comprehensive suite of online sensors combined with fast scanner and data processing speeds to deliver precise, high-resolution measurements.

“In the face of increasing worldwide demand for pulp, we’re continuing to see more of our customers in the pulp and paper industries turn to integrated systems to increase output while maintaining quality,” said Jon Lippin, vice president and general manager, Honeywell Process Solutions Asia Pacific. “Chenming’s new ZhanJiang facility is the latest example of this trend and illustrates how tight integration can reap a range of benefits from energy savings to more-precise coatings measurement.”

Annual Salary Survey

Participate in the 2013 Salary Survey

In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.

Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
