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
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
"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
