GAPCO Takes On Partnership for Project at Alumina Refinery
Phoenix, AZ— Global Alumina Products Corporation (GAPCO) has contracted with Honeywell for a multi-year automation project to immediately begin working side-by-side on the design and construction of GAPCO’s proposed greenfield refinery in Guinea, Africa. Honeywell will implement technology solutions that maximize the refinery’s uptime, enhance operator effectiveness and optimize plant performance. GAPCO intends to develop, finance and construct a 2.8 million ton per annum alumina refinery in the Boke region of Guinea with potential expansion of production capacity to 4.2 million tons per annum over the next 10 years.
Under the terms of the agreement, Honeywell will handle all of GAPCO’s automation needs. Specifically, it will provide the leading-edge process automation solution, Experion(TM) Process Knowledge System (PKS) and one of its principle applications, Business.FLEX(R). Experion PKS unifies people with process, business and asset management tools that allow workers to gather, view, analyze and act on information more quickly than ever before. The Experion open technologies ultimately help process manufacturers to increase profitability and productivity, and sustain optimal working conditions over time.
Business.FLEX is a suite of advanced applications that unifies business goals and production automation, improving decision-making capabilities, helping users achieve faster execution, enhancing performance management and increasing manufacturing flexibility.
