Honeywell solution helps Sierra Leone methanol company optimize its operation editor's note: Sierra Leone methanol company, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Oman Oil Company, is currently building a methanol production plant facility based on light natural gas in Sierra Leone Free Trade Zone, Oman. Recently, Honeywell announced that it was awarded the contract of serrale methanol company (SMC) located in Oman free trade zone to install UniSIM operation kit for it
Honeywell (nyse:hon) announced that it was awarded the contract of Salalah methanol company (SMC) located in Oman free trade zone to install UniSIM operation kit for it. Selalai methanol company, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Oman Oil Company, is currently building methanol production plant facilities based on light natural gas in selalai Free Trade Zone, Oman. The new project of Sierra Leone methanol company will produce 3000 tons of methanol per day and will be put into operation in 2010. This facility includes waste heat power generation, water desalination and desalination and wastewater treatment plant, which will ensure that Sierra Leone methanol company can achieve energy self-sufficiency and environmental protection
Sierra Leone methanol company will use UniSIM simulation operation kit as a separate model to train operators on optimizing plant operation parameters, and then conduct training in the final simulator. All these simulation training solutions and equipment are provided by Honeywell. This solution can greatly avoid accidents and damages caused by human misoperation and improve the safety, stability and efficiency of the plant by training operators to optimize the plant operation and help them understand the standard operation specifications and production processes before the plant is officially started
unisim operation suite is an intuitive and interactive modeling element that allows engineers to create normal and dynamic models, performance monitoring, troubleshooting, business improvement, business planning and asset management for plant design. The solution adopts the operation models and powerful tools of specific industries to optimize the process and operation parameters under different conditions, including oil and gas, refining, chemical and other process industries. The high-speed engine has strong two-way computing ability to ensure timely feedback on the assumptions created by users and support users' correct decisions. The solution includes a complete control element model and transient analysis tools to help analyze the simulation results
yusufoncu, CEO of Sierra Leone methanol, said: "Through the strict and fierce bidding review process, we finally decided to adopt Honeywell solutions, including filled and reinforced unfilled materials and hard thermoplastic plates, mainly because of their ability to seamlessly integrate the distributed control system, and the strong support provided by Honeywell aman staff for many of our needs, i.e. its process is not well controlled. We believe in their solutions and technologies Support can help us successfully implement this new plant operation project and continue to help us throughout the life cycle of the project. Our engineers will be able to create models for optimizing operations and upload them to the facility's distributed control system (DCS) before testing. We will also use the UniSIM operation suite to monitor the performance of the equipment and formulate a regular maintenance plan for the raw material supply plant that will ensure the positive material business of Santon new energy. "
gedblenkharn, general manager of the Middle East region of Honeywell process control department, said: "Honeywell UniSIM operation suite can help users get familiar with the production process faster and shorten the duration of the facility's commercial operation. When carrying out projects of this size, it will be the top priority to be familiar with and control the system from the first day before the factory is officially put into operation and optimize the production process."
