The HART Communication Foundation is actively seeking qualified nominees for the 11th annual HART Plant of the Year Award, encouraging end users and manufacturers from all world areas to enter their plant or customer’s plant for recognition.
The HART Plant of the Year is the only international award presented to end user companies in the process automation industry to recognize the exceptional application of HART Communication technology. Nominations will be accepted through July 15.
Selection of the HART Plant of the Year is based on a plant’s use of HART Communication — not on the size of the installation, according to Ron Helson, HART Communication Foundation Executive Director.
“We are seeking a plant that has taken the capabilities of HART instruments beyond configuration and calibration, or is using real-time diagnostics and process variables in HART-enabled devices integrated with control, information, asset management, or safety systems,” Helson explains.
Previous recipients of the HART Plant of the Year Award include Shell (Canada), MOL (Hungary), Mitsubishi Chemical (Japan), PDVSA (Venezuela), Statoil (Norway), Sasol (South Africa), Clariant (Germany), and DuPont (USA).
