Honeywell Awarded Contract by Casale

January 6, 2009

The automation and control technology company will provide the UniSim process simulation suite to design and upgrade key global chemical manufacturing facilities. The software will be integrated into Casale's business process and collaborative project execution environment.

Lugano, Switzerland -- Honeywell announced it has won a contract to supply process simulation solutions to Casale Group, a Lugano, Switzerland-based global leader in the design and refurbishment of chemical facilities. The Honeywell technology will be applied to the design of new chemical facilities around the world, helping Casale Group's customers remove production bottlenecks and optimize their assets.

Casale Group, which is famous for pioneering ammonia synthesis in the 1920's, will deploy Honeywell's UniSim Design Suite across its process engineering teams to optimize process modeling and design, support best-practices, and improve project execution. UniSim Design will be integrated into Casale's business process and collaborative project execution environment, leveraging the know-how and intellectual property previously developed from other simulation tools.

"As a process licensor, simulation is a strategic resource for the design, maintenance, and optimization of our customer's chemical facilities around the world," said Federico Zardi, Deputy General Manager of Casale Group. "We chose Honeywell's UniSim Design because of its quality and reliability, and also because of Honeywell's local support capabilities. The Honeywell team really understands our business and was able to tailor the solution to our needs."

UniSim Design is a process modeling solution suite that enables engineers to create steady-state and dynamic models for plant design, performance monitoring, troubleshooting, operational improvement, business planning, and asset management.

"We are committed to addressing our customers' modeling and simulation needs by providing the most innovative technology and best-in-class support," said Paul Brice, Acting Director of Advanced Solutions, Honeywell Process Solutions Europe, Middle East, and Africa. "The advanced capabilities of UniSim Design will help Casale deliver better services that should result in improved performance for its customers."
