Staatsolie Maatschappij Suriname N.V., Suriname's state-owned oil company, will deploy Honeywell’s manufacturing execution system (MES) as part of a major expansion and efficiency project at the Tout Lui Faut crude oil refinery complex.
The project will more than double the refinery’s capacity, greatly reducing the country’s dependence on imported fuel products. The refinery will produce high-quality diesel, gasoline and fuel oil. Start-up is expected in October 2014 and will improve its reliability and mitigate safety risks, which can have a significant impact on its business results.
The MES will help the refinery better manage its production, operations and process visualization with a portfolio of applications.
