Honeywell (Morristown, N.J.; www.honeywell.com) has announced that Antipinsky Refinery CJSC will use Honeywell's Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS) to control plant processes and general refinery facilities as part of the third stage of construction of the Antipinsky Refinery in Tyumen, Russia. The commissioning of the plant will double the refinery's capacity to 7.5 million metric tons per year (m.y./yr), helping meet the growing demand for clean fuels and other oil products in Russia and the European Union (E.U.).
Deploying Experion PKS is part of an initiative to create a single, central operations center at the Antipinsky Refinery. As an additional part of this initiative, Honeywell will supply up to 60 additional workstations to the refinery, which will be installed in the unified refinery control center.
The new construction is part of the refinery's plan to increase its capacity of crude oil processing and to enable production of products in the next year that meet the E.U. quality of the Euro-5 emission standards. The project also includes the construction of a water treatment plant, sewage treatment plant, steam generation plant and other general refinery facilities. This phase of construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2013.
