Honeywell seals 5-year deal with Refining NZ

By

Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) has secured a five-year agreement to provide maintenance, support and project delivery to Refining NZ, New Zealand’s sole oil refinery, through the HPS Assurance 360 program.

Under the deal, Refining NZ has selected HPS to provide full lifecycle maintenance for the refinery’s control systems, as well as to migrate the refinery to the most recent process control technology, Honeywell’s Experion PKS (Process Knowledge System).

“Through the Assurance 360 program, Refining NZ no longer has to worry about maintaining and supporting their Honeywell control systems or making sure they are using the latest technology,” said Neil Wold, Pacific sales director, HPS Australia and New Zealand.

“These services transform how plant assets are managed, focusing on system performance and outcomes while allowing operators like Refining NZ to focus on operations.”

Honeywell says Refining NZ is the latest to implement the Assurance 360 program, which was launched in 2014.

Wold said the multi-year service partnerships maintain, support and optimise Honeywell control systems at major facilities in South Africa, the North Sea, the United States, Saudi Arabia and the Middle East. "Through the Assurance 360 program, Honeywell performance experts provide maintenance and support services on-site, while also optimising system performance to help organisations achieve their long-term goals."

Wold said that, in addition to the HPS technologies, Refining NZ has used processes from Honeywell UOP, a licensor of refining process technology, for more than 50 years, including a fixed-bed reforming unit and the UOP Bensat process to meet high-octane gasoline specifications.

“Strategic alliances are at the core of Refining NZ’s developing business, as we move from a self-supported operation to establishing a broad network of expert partnerships,” said Sjoerd Post, chief executive officer, Refining NZ.

“We have partnered with Honeywell due to its significant expertise in control systems and have the upmost confidence that through this relationship, our operations will continue to meet global best practice standards.”
