Honeywell has been selected to provide the process control system for a new pulp mill under construction in the Chita region of southeast Russia.
Built and operated by Russian North Star Pulp Industrial Complex LLC, but wholly owned by Chinese firm Heilongjiang Xingbang International Resources Investment Co. Ltd., the new pulp mill will use Honeywell’s Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS) to run plant operations. The new mill will have an annual capacity of 230,000 tons of unbleached market pulp when fully operational. Start-up is expected in mid-2015.
Honeywell's Experion PKS will be installed in all of the mill’s major process areas including wood preparation, pulping and drying, as well as the chemical recovery and combined heat and power plant.
