HOUSTON – Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) announced on Aug. 1 it will provide full automation and safety systems and serve as integrated main automation contractor for Goldboro LNG. Honeywell technology is currently being used in more than 40 similar LNG import and export terminals around the world.

“Honeywell’s Integrated-MAC role will help Pieridae eliminate significant project risk, compress its schedule, and ramp up to nameplate production capacity faster,” said Vimal Kapur, president, HPS. “Honeywell’s latest technologies, project delivery capabilities and expert services will create a highly integrated infrastructure to boost this new venture’s profitability.”

The announcement was made at the 2016 Honeywell Executive Forum on Mega-Projects in Morristown, NJ.

“I am excited to have developed this highly collaborative relationship with a globally recognized industry leader such as Honeywell,” said Alfred Sorensen, president and chief executive officer, Pieridae Energy. “I am confident that Honeywell’s experienced infrastructure team will work very well with my engineering contractor, and their advanced software team will help Pieridae put the right plan in place to start the business up effectively and efficiently on day one of operations.”

Honeywell is responsible for designing, delivering and installing the distributed control systems (DCS), safety instrumented systems, fire and gas systems, and operator training simulator (OTS) for the project. Honeywell will also be responsible for helping Pieridae integrate all plant infrastructure to the business enterprise systems.

Pieridae Energy’s Goldboro LNG project will include a natural gas liquefaction terminal and facilities for LNG storage and marine export. The facility will be able to process 10 million metric tons of LNG a year and have a storage capacity of 690,000 cubic meters. Startup is expected in 2021.
