Honeywell ( is supporting educational development at Banff and Buchan College, Fraserburgh, Scotland, by upgrading the institution’s legacy training systems to Honeywell’s Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS) as part of the college’s redevelopment program.

Banff and Buchan College has undergone a major redevelopment process, with nearly three-quarters of the campus being reconstructed. As part of this, Honeywell’s modernization of the process automation technology will enable the college to train future engineers and equip them with the experience and skills necessary to operate the latest software and systems available to the oil and gas industry. In celebration of the extensive redevelopment of the college, Alex Salmond MSP, First Minister of Scotland, presided over a dedicated opening ceremony held at Banff and Buchan College on 2nd March, 2012.

As Banff and Buchan College officials planned for their re-build, Honeywell offered to modernize their training system to Experion PKS with a C300 Controller. The advanced process control system was built into an easily transportable case to allow flexible tutoring with the system throughout the college. The local engineering experts from the Honeywell Aberdeen branch worked closely with college staff to develop hands-on training and system configuration. They will also continue to support the college throughout the lifecycle of the equipment.
