Emerson partners with Huntsman to improve asset optimization at plant in Holland
Huntsman Rozenburg will implement planned and predictive maintenance using Emerson's AMS Suite: Intelligent Device Manager software and PlantWeb digital plant architecture.
Built in 1961, the Huntsman Holland Rozenburg site is situated in the Europoort area near Rotterdam. Sixty percent of the Dutch petrochemicals industry is based in this area, which is the world’s largest port and second largest industrial zone. The plant produces MDI, Polyols and variants, which are used in the manufacture of hard and soft products for mattresses, car dashboards and insulation for domestic appliances. Products can be tailor-made to the customer’s specification and many new products are manufactured each year to satisfy the rapidly changing needs of the market.
The Huntsman site has 400 employees and 150 contractors. It has won several awards including the first “Horti” port award for the best looking site in the main port area of Rotterdam and the first winner of the “Responsible Care Award” from the Association fo the Ductch Chemical Industry (VNCI).
