Honeywell opened its new Customer Acceptance Center in the Mussafah industrial zone of Abu Dhabi. The facility is Honeywell’s largest Customer Acceptance Center in the region, covering a total floor area of 5,500 square meters. During peak periods, up to 150 Honeywell and third-party engineers will be working at this facility, which enables testing of systems destined for the Shah sour gas field development.
Honeywell Process Solutions is the main automation contractor for the Shah Gas Development Project, providing operation, control, monitoring and full protection of the gas field through its Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS) and Safety Manager technologies. The new Customer Acceptance Center will enable Al Hosn Gas to conduct thorough testing of Honeywell’s control system hardware and software destined for the Shah Gas Development Project.
Honeywell control system cabinets, marshalling cabinets and third-party equipment will be received at this facility. Pre-Factory Acceptance Testing (Pre-FAT) will be conducted by the Honeywell team. After this, Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) and Integrated Factory Acceptance Testing (I-FAT) will be conducted with the Engineering and Procurement Contractors (Saipem, Samsung and TR) and the end user (Al Hosn Gas). Once these tests are successfully completed, the systems will be shipped to the site for commissioning.
