The company’s new customer acceptance centre in Abu Dhabi is Honeywell’s largest centre in the region, covering 5,500 sqaure meters.

Opened in the Mussafah industrial zone of Abu Dhabi, 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.

Al Hosn Gas is a joint venture between Abu Dhabi’s ADNOC and Occidental Petroleum.

The principal project of Al Hosn Gas is the Shah Sour Gas Field Development Project, which is set for completion in 2014.

The project will involve construction of several gas gathering systems, new gas and liquid pipelines, and processing trains.

“The new Customer Acceptance Center clearly shows Honeywell’s commitment to providing high-quality services to its customers in the Middle East,”

said Mr. Saif Al Ghafli, CEO of Abu Dhabi Gas Development Co. Ltd. (Al Hosn Gas)

“It provides a highly professional, state-of-the-art facility that will enable thorough testing of the systems we have purchased from Honeywell.”

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.
