Honeywell to Provide Integrated Control and Safety System Solution for Spain’s First Advanced Biofuels Production Plant

January 13, 2021 – Honeywell announced today that it has been selected by Repsol to supply an Integrated Control and Safety System (ICSS) for the first advanced biofuels production plant to be built in Spain. The new facility will use a variety of Honeywell’s distributed control systems (DCS), emergency shutdown (ESD), fire and gas (F&G) and human-machine interface (HMI) solutions to achieve efficient, sustainable and low-emissions operations.

Last year, Repsol announced its strategy to become a net-zero emissions company by 2050 and recently announced more ambitious targets that will accelerate its transformation. The company’s biofuels plant located at its refinery in Cartagena, Spain, will have an annual production capacity of 250,000 tonnes of hydrobiodiesel, biofuel, bionaphtha and biopropane. The plant will also produce advanced biofuels from recycled feedstocks for use in road transport and aviation. These advanced biofuels will facilitate the reduction of CO2 emissions of 900,000 tons per year.

“With this initiative, at Repsol, we are decisively promoting a new technological path that will be key on our path to carbon neutrality. This initiative will be integrated with the projects we have already implemented in the areas of energy efficiency, low-emission electricity generation, green hydrogen, circular economy, synthetic fuels, , CO2 utilization and storage and much more,” said Josu Jon Imaz, CEO of Repsol. .

“We are committed to helping renewable energy producers with key initiatives aimed at creating a better environment and a more sustainable world,” said Ujjwal Kumar, President and CEO, Honeywell Process Solutions. “Honeywell helps customers achieve their automation and asset lifecycle goals, delivering a robust solution for each new project that will easily integrate with the existing installed base and expand capabilities to optimize overall performance.”

Honeywell’s ICSS solution will include the Enhanced High-Performance Process Manager (EHPM), a process-connected device on the Enhanced Universal Control Network (EUCN) providing regulatory control and sequence operations; Safety Manager SC, a modular fault-tolerant safety system integrating all safety processes, including F&G and ESD functions; and Experion® Orion Console, an advanced HMI console enabling faster operator response, reduced fatigue and improved situational awareness. Honeywell will also provide engineering, design, configuration, testing, installation and start-up services on the project.
