Shipbuilder employs Integrated Automation Systems on new vessels

17 April 2012

Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) and STX Offshore & Shipbuilding have announced that they will use Honeywell’s Integrated Automation Systems (IAS) in five vessels commissioned by ship owners in Norway, Russia and the United States.

IAS will be used in vessels being constructed for the transportation of liquid natural gas (LNG). DSME is building the industry’s largest advanced floating storage and regasification unit capable of delivering 20 million cubic meters per day of natural gas to south-eastern Brazil.

The IAS solution uses Honeywell’s Experions Process Knowledge System (PKS), and will manage the machinery and cargo areas of the vessels, including the cargo emergency shutdown system. The solution has been chosen to enable the project teams to better manage and control operations and ensure that the vessels comply with strict global standards.

“For more than 12 years, DSME and Honeywell have worked in collaboration and delivered over 40 complex projects successfully and on schedule,” said Sang-Cheol Lee, senior manager, DSME Co. Ltd. “We appreciate Honeywell’s ability to deliver a reliable and robust automation solution, and to jointly develop various systems such as re-gasification, re-liquefaction and main engine gas injection (MEGI). These new systems have been instrumental in helping DSME stay ahead of competition.”

“We selected Honeywell for the quality of its process automation, global expertise and reputation for successfully delivering complex projects on-time,” said Dong-Min Seo, senior manager, STX Offshore & Shipbuilding Co. Ltd. “The initial project start has been promising and we look forward to a fruitful, long-term relationship together.”
