BRACKNELL, U.K. -- Major industrial companies from various sectors of the process industries are turning to Honeywell's (NYSE:HON) UniSim technology to provide industrial operator training and process design solutions. Honeywell has signed ten new simulation projects worth a combined $20 million, driving growth for its process simulation business.
Honeywell's UniSim family of simulation software and engineering services are designed to enhance plant design, operations and optimization. UniSim offers a series of unified simulation solutions to support improved performance throughout the lifecycle of a plant — from off-line use in steady-state design simulation, control check-out, and operator training, to online use in control and optimization, performance monitoring, and business planning.
"A wide range of industrial operations recognize simulation technology can help them achieve a significant competitive advantage in today's demanding global market," said Vimal Kapur, vice president - Advanced Solutions for Honeywell Process Solutions. "Honeywell's successful track record in process simulation has given customers confidence in our ability to deliver solutions that consistently help the process industries meet their business objectives."
The UniSim portfolio includes UniSim Design Suite, a powerful steady-state and dynamic simulation tool that helps engineers create optimal process designs based on critical business objectives; and UniSim Operations Suite, which provides an advanced operator training solution plus capabilities for control system checkout. Recent examples of Honeywell's growing process simulation business include:
- European-based refining company making a multi-million dollar investment in Honeywell's OTS technology to help improve operator competency and safety at multiple facilities.
- Global petroleum exploration and production company employing the UniSim Design Suite at all of its sites worldwide to design and test plant processes.
