Honeywell, Equate ink MoU to boost petrochemical plants productivity
The global producer of petrochemicals joins Honeywell's efforts to develop solutions that reduce downtime and increase profitability.

KUWAIT CITY, KUWAIT: Honeywell International (HON) and Equate Petrochemical Company have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU), to further develop innovative technologies to support operations at Equate's industrial complexes.

Equate is currently the owner and single-operator of several fully integrated world-class petrochemical complexes in Kuwait, North America and Europe. The company is Kuwait's first international petrochemical joint venture and the world's second-largest producer of ethylene glycol (EG).

As part of the MoU, Equate will test newly released Honeywell technologies, including the latest additions to the Honeywell Connected Plant portfolio, as well as assess Equate's requirements and new ideas at Honeywell facilities. The companies will join efforts to analyze Equate's needs and create added value through increased productivity and reduced downtime, setting a new standard for the petrochemical industry in the region.

"As a global software-industrial company, Honeywell has supplied the petrochemical industry with leading technologies and services for decades. After half a century in Kuwait, Honeywell's commitment to deliver solutions that enhance the productivity of our customers is as strong as ever. We are proud to work with Equate to build local petrochemical capability that supports the New Kuwait 2035 strategy to become a global hub for the oil, gas and petrochemicals industry," said George Bou Mitri, president of Honeywell Kuwait, Iraq, Jordan and Lebanon.

"We are firm believers that success requires input from all our key stakeholders, including our technology suppliers, such as Honeywell. Being part of the global petrochemical industry with operations in three continents and contributing to various economies, Equate is strongly committed to absolute reliability and sustainability in all operations and activities. Our relationship with Honeywell is based on innovation and trust, which are key factors to ensure overall progress," said Tareq Jafar Al-Kandari, vice president of Technical Services, Equate.
