The HART Communication Foundation (www.hartcomm.org) awarded Honeywell”s (www.honeywell.com) customer, Sasol (www.sasol.com), the 2005 HART Plant of the Year award for its chemical plant at Sasolburg, Free State in South Africa. The award recognizes innovative use of HART Communication in real-time industrial process plant applications.

Award recipients include plants that take the capabilities of their HART-enabled instrumentation beyond configuration and calibration to improve operations and optimize asset productivity. Sasol won after rolling out its vision to leverage and maximize its investment in HART-enabled equipment purchased for its solvents plant in Sasolburg. The final solution encompassed technologies that were integrated into a single centralized asset management system. Specifically, Sasol”s plant is maximizing the use of all technologies available to leverage the device diagnostic information in its HART-enabled instrumentation. The main benefit is the ability to initiate instrumentation repairs before a plant trip/shutdown occurs. This work process is supported by a site-wide asset management solution, which is monitoring for failures and guiding the maintenance team in the repair process.
