Honeywell (Morris Plains, N.J.; www.honeywell.com) announced that a subsidiary of PetroVietnam will use its new IIoT-based (industrial internet of things) Connected Performance Services (CPS) offering to improve the performance of its manufacturing operations in Quang Ngai City, Vietnam.
Binh Son Refining and Petrochemical Co., Ltd. (BSR) will use Honeywell's CPS technology, which integrates Honeywell UOP's deep process knowledge to improve refinery and plant performance at its naphtha complex. CPS is part of Honeywell's Connected Plant initiative, which leverages IIoT technologies, services and domain expertise to improve all aspects of industrial operations from supply chain efficiency to asset optimization.
"Honeywell's CPS technology uses the plant's own process data with cloud-based optimization and reliability solutions to ensure the operation runs at peak efficiency," said Zak Alzein, vice president for Honeywell UOP's CPS business. "Honeywell will be in a position to use plant-specific information to provide BSR with actionable recommendations that can significantly improve its profitability."
The service continuously monitors streaming plant data and applies UOP process models and best practices, big data analytics, and machine learning to find latent and emerging performance problems, alert plant personnel and make specific operational recommendations. These recommendations are reported simultaneously to a dedicated Honeywell UOP process advisor, who also monitors performance and provides additional direction and resources.
"The CPS system is an important tool to help our refinery produce more gasoline and consume less energy," said Tran Ngoc Nguyen, President and CEO of Binh Son Refining & Petrochemical Co. "We believe it will improve our staff's capabilities so they can keep our operation running at peak performance."
