Nuon selects Honeywell for Magnum

1 January 2009

Following completion of an engineering and design study initiated in 2007, Honeywell has won an $11 million contract to provide process control hardware and software to Nuon’s Magnum plant, a 1300 MWe three-unit combined cycle power station under construction at Eemshaven in the Netherlands, with conversion to IGCC+CCS planned in a second phase.

At the centre of the Magnum plant’s control system will be Honeywell’s Experion Process Knowledge System, which will monitor and control the plant.

Experion feeds data from critical plant subsystems directly to operators, giving them the necessary information to make real-time decisions that can improve plant safety, reliability and efficiency. Honeywell will also implement its Safety Manager system to establish safety practices such as process and emergency shutdowns, equipment protection, and fire and gas monitoring. Additionally, Honeywell will supply equipment for the operator control room and provide a range of hardware and software engineering and consultancy services including an operator training simulator.
