Honeywell has announced that it has received a contract to supply its Experion® Process Knowledge System (PKS) automation controls and tank gauging systems for Finland’s first LNG import terminal.
Honeywell’s technology will help to efficiently supply natural gas to marine vessels and industrial facilities in Finland from Skangas Oy’s LNG facility in Pori.
In addition, Honeywell’s Enterprise Buildings Integrator (EBI) will connect and power comfort, safety and security systems within the LNG terminal itself. With tight integration between Experion PKS and EBI, operators will have one interface to access and manage all process and facility technology, which improves site-wide visibility and efficiency.
“Honeywell’s technologies offer Skangas Oy an all-in-one solution that will help make their new facility efficient and productive from day one,” said Pieter Krynauw, Vice President and General Manager of Honeywell Process Solutions’ Projects and Automation Solutions business unit. “This fully integrated technology will help the terminal maximise its operations with accurate and on time information, precise measuring technologies, safety and security.”
The Pori LNG terminal, which will have a capacity of 30 000 m3, is scheduled for completion in the second half of 2016. Honeywell’s tank gauging systems will be used on tanks provided through FCC Industrial E. Infraestructuras Energeticas S.A.U.
Tommy Mattila, Sales and Marketing Director, Skangas, said: “Demand for LNG in Finland continues to rise for industrial, shipping and heavy-duty land transport companies […] It is critical that this terminal operates at the highest level of efficiency.”
