One of the world's oldest refineries has selected Honeywell to help continue modernising its operations under a service agreement that shares responsibility for running the site.

Germany-based H&R Group will migrate the legacy control systems at its ChemPharm GmbH refinery in Salzbergen, Germany, to Honeywell's newest controllers.
