Record attendance at the Honeywell EMEA users group conference

11 December 2012

Honeywell has announced record attendance at its annual Honeywell Users’ Group (HUG) conference for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA). In total, over 900 delegates, representing more than 285 companies, attended the conference, which took place in Istanbul, Turkey in November.

Themed ‘Sustain.Ability’, HUG EMEA 2012 informed attendees how the latest advances in process automation and control can help sustain performance and existing assets to maximise plant safety, reliability and efficiency.

The event include customers such as Shell, SASOL, Saudi Aramco, Marathon Oil and Repsol sharing insights and best practices from their industries.

A major technology focus at the event was the next generation of Honeywell’s flagship process automation system, Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS). Launched in June 2012,Experion PKS Orion saw its European debut at Istanbul and includes major advances that are said to help improve plant production by up to 13%, reduce operator-related safety incidents and lower the total of cost of ownership by up to 30%.

Honeywell also made several global product announcements in Istanbul including:
· A new range of SmartLine industrial pressure transmitters, which enhance communication abilities, improve operational efficiency and reduce lifecycle costs for process manufacturers;
· The next generation of Terminal Manager server software that will allow bulk terminal operators to integrate any disparate business, operations, safety, security and access control systems into a single control and operating solution;
· The Enhanced High-Performance Process Manager (EHPM) controller which allows 25 years of distributed control system installed base to seamlessly migrate to the Experion®Process Knowledge System. With EHPM, the cost of migration is significantly reduced by preserving control strategies and wiring.
