Production increase at Arzamas plant will meet growing needs of local customers

Honeywell (NYSE: HON) Process Solutions (HPS) today announced that it will expand the manufacture of oil and natural gas solutions for the Russian sector at its Arzamas plant. This will include gas measurement equipment and gas regulators for medium and high-pressure applications.

The expansion will include new production lines, equipment and training at the company’s existing plant in the Nizhny Novgorod region of Russia. The plant is part of Honeywell’s Elster® Gazelektronika business.

“These oil and gas solutions are very important to the growing sector in Russia,” said Alexei Zenkevich, HPS business leader for Russia, Belarus and Armenia. “This is the right time to expand our range of solutions to better serve local customers with high-quality products tailored to their requirements. This also aligns to the current priority of the Russian government creating opportunities for industrial growth.”

Elster Gazelektronika will add production lines at the Arzamas plant. The first is Elster gas measurement equipment, including the Q.Sonic® Ultrasonic flow meter range for measurement of gas flow and volume, the EnCal 3000gas chromatograph for gas composition analysis, FC1 flow computers, and metering skid solutions.

Elster’s gas measurement solutions are widely used in natural gas fields, at metering stations and in the transportation of gas by major oil and gas companies in Russia.

A second new line will produce Honeywell natural gas regulators for medium and high-pressure applications. Many Russian natural gas companies use this equipment to control the pressure of gas production and transportation systems.

Honeywell acquired Elster, a German-based provider of gas heating, controls, metering and advanced technologies, in 2015. The company’s Russian subsidiaries include Elster Metronica, a market leader in metering systems, and Elster Gazelektronika, a provider of gas measurement and control products.
