Kuwait Paraxylene Production Company Implements Honeywell Connected Plant to Enhance Performance

Honeywell announced that Kuwait Paraxylene Production Co. (KPPC) will use two Honeywell Connected Plant services to improve the performance of its CCR Platforming™ and aromatics complex, which produces paraxylene for plastic fibers and films, at its Shuaiba petrochemical facility in Safat, Kuwait.

KPPC will use Honeywell Connected Plant’s Process Reliability Advisor for ongoing monitoring, early event detection and mitigation of performance issues before they become costly. The company also will use Process Optimization Advisor, which continuously monitors streaming plant data and applies Honeywell UOP process models to determine the most economical mode of operations. Both services use big-data analytics and machine learning to improve plant operation.

Kuwait Paraxylene Production Company is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Kuwait Aromatics Company (KARO), a joint venture between Petrochemical Industries Co. (PIC), Kuwait National Petroleum Company and Qurain Petrochemical Industries Company. As the aromatics unit of PIC, KPPC is one of the region’s largest marketers of paraxylene. The Shuaiba aromatics complex annually produces 780,000 metric tons of paraxylene, which is marketed by PIC — and 370,000 metric tons of benzene, which is used locally for production of styrene monomer by The Kuwait Styrene Company (TKSC).
