Honeywell supplies technology to power plant, biofuel refinery

Honeywell International Inc. announced that two European facilities plan to install the company's Experion Process Knowledge System, which streamlines output by allowing a facility to unify process, production and business management. NSE Biofuels Oy Ltd. plans to use the system at its Varkaus, Finland-based research facility, where work will focus on the process of producing biofuels from wood residue. Meanwhile, Dutch energy company Nuon will install the system at its Magnum plant, a 1,300-megawatt-per-hour combined-cycle power station under construction in Eemshaven, Netherlands. The facility, capable of using biomass, will supply electricity to approximately 2 million homes.
