Linde implements Honeywell’s UniSim Operation solution


Honeywell has provided the Linde Group with a sophisticated operation solution that aids simulator-based training for its remote operating centres, controlling gas plants across the globe.

The Honeywell UniSim Operation technology will enable plant operator trainees to quickly develop confidence, competency and experience dealing with both normal and abnormal situations – without risk to the operation.

Linde operates more than 1,300 gas production plants globally. Over 500 of these are large-scale plants, both hydrogen plants and ASU’s. To help them run safely, more efficiently and productively, operation of Linde’s plants has been consolidated into a small number of remote operating centres (ROC).

Operators in each ROC oversee control of dozens of plants across different countries. In this diverse operating environment, a high level of operator competence is essential to ensure safe and smooth control for start-up’s or process upsets. Hand-over of control for new plants from local operation to the ROC must also be carefully managed.
