Honeywell to supply process controls to gas-fired power plant

18 November 2008 – Honeywell said it won an $11 million contract to provide process control hardware and software to Nuon’s Magnum plant, a 1,300 MW natural gas-fired combined-cycle, three-unit power station under construction in the Netherlands. The contract follows completion of an engineering and design study initiated by Honeywell in 2007.

At the center of the Magnum plant’s control system will be Honeywell’s Experion Process Knowledge System, which will monitor and control the power station. Experion feeds data from critical plant subsystems directly to operators, giving them the necessary information to make decisions that can improve plant safety, reliability and efficiency.

Honeywell will also implement its Safety Manager to establish safety practices such as process and emergency shutdowns, equipment protection and fire and gas monitoring. Additionally, Honeywell will supply equipment for the operator control room and provide a range of hardware and software engineering and consultancy services including an operator training simulator.
