Honeywell to Provide Uzbekistan’s international Congress Center and Hilton Hotel with Smart Technologies

2 August 2019

Honeywell, one of the world’s leading technology companies, has been selected to provide smart building technologies for Tashkent City’s new International Congress Center and Hilton Hotel– a modern architecture project designed to create an attractive, connected and comfortable business environment for domestic and international corporations to thrive.

Technologies that will be installed in International Congress Center and Hilton Hotel include Honeywell’s fully integrated, cybersecure and cloud-based Building Management System, which combines multiple building controls, such as access systems and heating and ventilation, into a single point of control. This makes it easier for the building’s operator to control critical systems and improve energy management, and increases safety, comfort and productivity for its occupants.

The International Congress Center and Hilton Hotel, complete with Honeywell’s technology, is expected to open in 2019. Beyond the International Congress Center and Hilton Hotel, Honeywell is targeting further opportunities to deploy its smart building and smart city solutions across Tashkent, and elsewhere in Uzbekistan.

“For more 20 years, Honeywell has been physically present in Uzbekistan, supporting the country’s industrial sectors with energy efficient technology to help drive growth,” said Frans van Deursen, President, Honeywell Turkey & Central Asia. “We see a huge opportunity for our technologies in supporting the modernization of Tashkent, and across the country. By bringing smart building and smart city technologies to new infrastructure projects we can help create urban environments that are safer, more energy efficient, more productive, and more attractive to the businesses and communities they serve.”

Honeywell’s portfolio of smart building technologies is based on the Internet of Things (IoT), where separate technologies across an operation are connected over the internet so that the data they generate can be harnessed, analyzed, and converted into intelligence. This intelligence can then be used to help operations run more effectively.

Honeywell’s Building Management System is designed to be incorporated into such an architecture to help building operators achieve insightful and accurate decision making, optimize building processes, and address maintenance threats before they result in down time.

The system also helps protect the building’s core functions against potential cyber threats. Honeywell implements key technologies and processes that readily seek out vulnerabilities, determine operating inefficiencies, and provide steps toward remediation — all leading to increased awareness and visibility into potential cyber risks.

Honeywell has been present in Uzbekistan since 1998 as part of a joint venture with Himavtomatika. “Honeywell GES (Global Engineering Services) Uzbekistan” supports customers in Uzbekistan across the CIS, Middle East and Africa regions with engineering and technology services. In addition, Honeywell cooperates with local Uzbek universities on technical education, including a long-term agreement with Tashkent State Technical University.

Honeywell counts some of Uzbekistan’s largest enterprises among its customer base. Recent projects include:

  • Participation in an automation project for three of LUKOIL Uzbekistan Operating Company LLC’s Gissar gas fields;
  • Installation and automation of one of the Kandym group of fields – one of the largest gas processing complexes in Central Asia;
  • Process automation technologies for Ustyurt Gas Chemical Complex in Karakalpakstan, JV between Uzbekneftegas and Consortium of Korean companies.
