Waste-to-energy facility specifies Honeywell control and monitoring solution

27 September 2011

Honeywell has signed a contract with Fortum to deploy its Experion Process Knowledge System and Safety Manager emergency shutdown and boiler protection system at the company’s new waste-to-energy facility in Klaipeda, Lithuania.

All of Fortum’s production sub-systems – both Honeywell and non-Honeywell – will be integrated into the Experion HMI. Klaipeda plant operators will be able to centrally monitor and control all plant processes. Safety Manager will help reduce the potential for human incidents and asset damage at the site.

The new power plant will be fuelled by municipal and industrial wastes as well as biofuels. The production capacity will be approximately 50 MW heat and 20MW electricity. It is expected that there will be an increase in energy production efficiency. In addition, the CO2 emissions of the heat production in the area will reduce significantly.

The new power plant is expected to begin operation in the beginning of 2013.
