Honeywell Automation India Limited (HAIL) announced that Deepak Fertilizers and Petrochemicals Corporation Limited (DFPCL) had selected Honeywell technologies to convert their Taloja facility in Maharashtra into a Smart Factory.
Honeywell delivered industrial cybersecurity solutions, secured remote operations and a multi-year enabled service maintenance program with Honeywell Forge health dashboard. These solutions helped DFPCL improve the efficiency and productivity of their operations and maintenance while being protected by the highest level of cybersecurity.

Honeywell also worked closely with DFPCL to develop a comprehensive maintenance program. Honeywell Enabled Services, powered by Honeywell Forge, will allow DFPCL to drive maintenance with a connected, predictive solution that combines advanced software and Honeywell’s domain knowledge on ICS. The program will deliver actionable insights on how to maintain system health, prioritise resources and amplify performance.
