Honeywell has announced that it has been selected by Pucheng Clean Energy Chemical Company Ltd. (PCEC) for a $5 million energy project in China. By providing technology and expertise, Honeywell will assist in ensuring that one of China’s largest methanol-to-olefins (MTO) and methanol-to-propylene (MTP) projects starts on time, safely and efficiently.
Once in full production, the Pucheng Coal Chemical Phase 1 Project will produce 0.7 million tons of olefins and 1.8 million tons of methanol annually. MTO technology facilitates production of high-value petrochemicals from abundantly available coal instead of petroleum or natural gas, and so reduces dependency on traditional crude sources.
PCEC has selected Honeywell’s Experion PKS, Safety Manager, Unisim Operator Training System and Field Device Manager for five coal chemical sites in China. As the main automation vendor, Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) will provide system configuration and site services for plant start-up and commissioning.
It will also oversee the implementation of third-party systems integration and engineering. In addition to the Pucheng Coal Chemical Project, Honeywell has already successfully won a number of other MTO/MTP projects within China.
