Oct. 28, 2016 – Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) says it has secured more than $350 million in contracts since the 2014 launch of its Assurance 360 services program, which strives to help industrial manufacturing plants around the world maximize uptime and reduce operating costs.
Through an international network of performance experts, Honeywell provides on-site maintenance and support to HPS Assurance 360 participants across the globe. Multi-year service partnerships are now in place supporting control systems at facilities in multiple industries, including refining, oil and gas, petrochemicals, chemical, pulp and paper and mining, it says.
According to HPS, plants in the program have reduced overall incidents by as much as 40 per cent. As well, the program can also help facilities reduce production waste by up to 30 per cent, says HPS, adding that these improvements, along with improved efficiency of maintenance staff, can help plants reduce their total cost of ownership by up to 20 per cent.
“With Assurance 360, manufacturers no longer worry about maintenance, support and updates for their control systems. Honeywell assumes responsibility for outcomes as a trusted partner,” said Steve Linton, HPS global director, programs and contracts. “These contracts transform how plant assets are managed, putting the focus on system performance and allowing customers to focus on operations.”
