Honeywell Provides Powerhouse for Airbus Assembly Line

November 13, 2014 By Linda Hardesty

HoneywellHoneywell completed the powerhouse for Airbus’ A320 Final Assembly Line in Mobile, Ala., the aviation company’s inaugural manufacturing operation in the United States.

Honeywell was awarded the $37-million project in 2013.

The new building houses the technology and personnel needed to provide utilities for the entire campus — electricity, heating and cooling, chilled and drinking water, compressed air and sewage handling.

Honeywell led the design and construction of the powerhouse and is responsible for managing and maintaining the facility as part of a 10-year service agreement. This includes onsite support as well as remote monitoring to help operators identify issues that could cause disruptions.

The powerhouse was built to LEED Gold standards.

Inside the facility are transformers that distribute power from the local electric company to the manufacturing lines and other buildings. Honeywell ComfortPoint Open will manage the heating and cooling hardware.

Honeywell’s building management system, Enterprise Buildings Integrator, will monitor all safety and energy management technology and track performance and utility consumption trends throughout the complex.
