NEW DELHI, INDIA: Honeywell (HON) has launched its set of solutions under the Honeywell Connected Plant (HCP), recently at the first India Technology Summit (ITS), held in New Delhi, India.

This enables the company to promote digitisation in industries in support of the government’s Digital India effort.

HCP’s transformative solutions enable manufacturers and process industries leverage data and insights to improve the efficiency and profitability of their operations.

HCP combines the company’s unmatched industrial expertise, software and cloud technologies to make its customers’ operations more reliable, profitable and secure than ever before. HCP technologies enhance decision making, increase security and productivity, and improve collaboration across the enterprise by providing the right information at the right time. These solutions cater to energy, manufacturing, infrastructure and other industries.

The summit was inaugurated by Ashish Gaikwad, managing director, Honeywell Automation India Limited and country leader, Honeywell Process Solutions; attended by Ajay Prakash Sawhney, additional joint secretary, ministry of petroleum and natural gas (MoPNG), Government of India; also, stakeholders from across the hydrocarbon sector.

“India is at the cusp of a digital revolution, driven by the government’s vision to digitise the economy, citizens, and infrastructure. It is essential for the industry to adopt world-class technologies that improve safety, reliability, and efficiency in an increasingly competitive global environment, and our HCP proposition is uniquely positioned to achieve this industrial evolution,” said Ashish Gaikwad.

“IIoT is the industrial revolution of the 21st century and Make in India is at the heart of Honeywell’s business strategy here. The HCP proposition focuses on technologies and industrial solutions to help organisations harness the power of IIoT”, said Steve Gimre, managing director, Honeywell UOP India.

Attendees had an opportunity to experience firsthand many of Honeywell’s solutions under the HCP portfolio:

Industrial cyber security: Honeywell showcased its Industrial Cyber Security Risk Manager: a solution that provides a single view for operations, IT and leadership teams to monitor, measure and manage cyber security across the enterprise. The team also demonstrated its new Secure Media Exchange (SMX), which gives operators unprecedented control and visibility into the secure use of USB and removable storage by personnel and contractors alike, reducing cyber risk to process control networks globally.

Automated change management software: A powerful documentation and change management software that helps customers’ industrial control system integrity, Honeywell Trace replaces paper-based records and spreadsheets with an automated solution. This helps minimise errors due to changes in configurations, improve worker productivity, and simplify automation asset management by providing a single integrated view of complex system interactions.

Data acquisition and analytics: The expanded Uniformance Suite software provides real-time digital intelligence through advanced process and event data collection, asset-centric analytics and powerful visualisation technology, turning plant data into actionable information to enable smart operations.

Plant performance: Honeywell Connected Plant applications that leverage the IIoT to tap Honeywell's deep process knowledge, design expertise and understanding of catalysis with next-generation software platforms from Honeywell Process Solutions. The software-based service enables refiners and petrochemical and gas processing plants to improve their performance.
