Fieldbus Foundation general assembly 2012 at São Paulo, Brazil

07 February 2012

The Fieldbus Foundation has announced that its 2012 General Assembly is to be held from 6th to 8th March in São Paulo, Brazil.

The annual event plays host to a variety of leading suppliers and end-users of FOUNDATION fieldbus based technology.

The 2012 General Assembly, themed, ‘In a World of Choices, FOUNDATION’ Brings it all Together’ will include an end user-oriented agenda consisting of fieldbus project case studies and tabletop exhibitions from leading automation vendors across the globe, as well as a demonstration of the new FOUNDATION for Remote Operations Management technology.
According to Fieldbus Foundation President and CEO Rich Timoney, São Paulo was selected due to its status as one of the world’s fastest growing industrial regions, and the overwhelming demand for FOUNDATION technology in the area. He said, "Brazil has been experiencing rapid growth in automation projects utilising FOUNDATION technology and is arguably the central hub of the process automation industry in all of Latin America. Petrobras, Brazil’s largest oil producer, has been integrating FOUNDATION fieldbus into their plants for some time, and is in the midst of a large expansion project utilising the technology.
“The 2012 General Assembly program will highlight the advantages of FOUNDATION fieldbus as a world-class solution for improving plant asset management, reliability and economic performance. FOUNDATION technology is advancing to meet the needs of the process industries, including developments such as FOUNDATION for Remote Operations Management, FOUNDATION for Safety Instrumented Functions (FF-SIF), control in the field, field diagnostics and wireless."
