Honeywell has been selected to supply the process automation and control platform for a new South Korea polysilicon plant to help meet the rising global demand for solar panels.
Woongjin Polysilicon will use Honeywell’s Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS) with Foundation Fieldbus solutions to help the Sangju Plant produce an estimated 5000 tons of polysilicon per year.
“The need for solar energy will only increase as the world looks for more sources of renewable resources,” said BD Kwon, project lead engineer of Woongjin Polysilicon. “This new facility will play a vital role in helping to meet that growing demand, and we selected Honeywell for this project because its philosophy of improving safety, reliability and efficiency is proven to optimise production and business results.”
