Recognising innovative use of of HART technology

15 July 2014

The HART Communication Foundation is currently seeking nominations for its annual HART Plant of the Year Award program and end users and manufacturers right across the globe are encouraged to nominate their plant or a customer’s plant for the award.

The HART Plant of the Year is the only international award presented to end user companies in the process automation industry to recognise exceptional and valuable application of HART Communication technology. 

 “Through the HART Plant of the Year Award Program, we are able to provide global recognition for the work of end users who have demonstrated ingenuity and value in the application of HART technology,” said Ted Masters, Foundation President and CEO. “For more than a decade, the recipients of this award have provided powerful, real-world examples of the significant benefits and savings HART Communication delivers throughout plant operations.”

The HART Plant of the Year receives an award plaque to display at its facility, exposure to the global industry press, and a full feature article in Control Engineering. Information about the project also appears in the Foundation newsletters and on the HART website. 

Best candidates have taken the capabilities of HART instruments beyond configuration and calibration, or are using real-time device diagnostics and process information integrated with control, information, asset management or safety systems to lower operating costs and improve plant reliability; have documented their results; and are willing to share their story with the industry.

Selection of the HART Plant of the Year is based on a plant’s use of HART Communication not on the size of the installation.
