The FieldComm Group is actively seeking qualified nominees for the 14th annual Plant of the Year Award. End users and manufacturers from all world areas are encouraged to enter their plant or customer’s plant for this prestigious award. The FieldComm Group Plant of the Year is the only international award presented to end user companies in the process automation industry to recognize the exceptional and valuable application of FOUNDATION™ Fieldbus and / or HART® Communication technologies. Nominations will be accepted until May 16, 2016. Nomination forms and program details are available here.
“Selection of the Plant of the Year is based on a plant’s use of our field communication and integration technologies - not on the size or location of the installation. We are seeking a plant that has taken the capabilities of FOUNDATION Fieldbus, HART or WirelessHART® enabled instruments beyond configuration and calibration,” says Ted Masters, FieldComm Group President and CEO. “Or, the plant that is using real-time device diagnostics and process information integrated with control, information, asset management, safety systems or any other system to lower operating costs, reduce unplanned downtime and improve operations.”
This globally recognized award has been expanded to include all communication and integration technologies supported by the FieldComm Group. Previous recipients include Nucor Steel, Dow Chemical (USA), Monsanto (USA), Shell (Canada), MOL (Hungary), Mitsubishi Chemical (Japan), PDVSA (Venezuela), Statoil (Norway), Sasol (South Africa), Clariant (Germany), and DuPont (USA).
