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 tpy, helping meet the growing demand for clean fuels and other oil products in Russia and the European Union (EU), according to Honeywell officials.

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.

"There is significant demand for Antipinsky refinery products, both in the region and throughout Russia and the EU," said Leonid Sorkin, general manager for Honeywell Russia. "Honeywell's advanced process automation systems will help the business grow efficiently and safely."

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 EU 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

"By selecting Honeywell, we were able to get everything we needed through a single, reliable supplier," said Gennady Lisovichenko, general manager and member of the board at Antipinsky Refinery CJSC.  "The implementation of Experion PKS will empower our workforce and greatly enhance the safety and efficiency of the refinery's processes."

This phase of construction is expected to be completed by the end of this year.

"Experion PKS provides a continuous and more comprehensive flow of information about refinery operations," said Alexander Rodionov, Russia sales leader for Honeywell Process Solutions. "This enables operators to spot potential problems more quickly, help them make better-informed decisions about plant operations and keep the plant running safely and efficiently."

Honeywell's four business divisions -- aerospace, automation and control solutions, performance materials and technologies, and transportation systems -- do business in Russia and offer numerous solutions that can help industries improve productivity while ensuring the safety and security of employees, customers and the local environment

Honeywell has been working in Russia for almost 50 years and has offices in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Sakhalin, Kazan, Krasnodar, Irkutsk, Khabarovsk and Tyumen.
