Tata Steel Selects Honeywell For Second Major Automation Project
Honeywell Process Solutions, Phoenix, Ariz., received a $4.1 million contract to automate all major areas of the Tata Steel G-Blast Furnace in Jamshedpur, India. The integrated automation solution will allow Tata Steel to operate the blast furnace at peak efficiency by linking controls and sharing information across all major furnace operations. Honeywell will automate blast furnace operations using Honeywell's Experion PKS, Uniformance(r) Process Historian Data (PHD) solution and Asset Manager PKS(r). The integrated solution will link the facility's stoves, cast house, utilities, stock house and weighing systems, raw material handling, coal injection, slag granulation, furnace cooling and gas cleaning plant. The entire operation will be viewed on large video screens in a main control room.
