HONEYWELL SELECTED TO MODERNIZE KUWAIT WATER DISTRIBUTION
Honeywell has announced that it has been selected by Kuwaits Ministry of Electricity and Water to modernize the water distribution network that supplies more than 280 million imperial gallons of fresh water daily to Kuwaits growing population.
Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) Experion® Process Knowledge System (PKS) will be deployed throughout the Azzour Water Distribution Scheme so that operators at a central location can control a network of six different treatment plants located in Ardiya, Hawally, Salmiya, Failaka Island, Adailiya and the water towers of Kuwait.
At the heart of this control system is Honeywells Distributed Server Architecture (DSA), which integrates and manages multiple control systems and control rooms located throughout the water system, simplifying operations, reducing engineering costs and improving system integrity.
"We have set long-term goals for sustainability in Kuwait. Revamping our water distribution network to improve efficiency and reduce costs is a key part of meeting our development plans," said Hamoud Bader Alrodan, assistant under secretary, Ministry of Electricity and Water, Kuwait. "Honeywells experience in control systems and support capabilities in a number of industrial projects in Kuwait helped us pick them as one of our trusted vendors."
