Airbus chooses Honeywell for Mobile assembly line powerhouse operation
Airbus has awarded Honeywell the contract for the powerhouse operation for the A320 Family Assembly Line Airbus is establishing in Mobile, Ala. Honeywell will be responsible for designing, building, operating and maintaining the facility that will supply all utilities to the new assembly line, including power distribution and backup generation, heating, cooling, chilled and drinking water, and sewage handling. The facility also will provide compressed air, and house the building management and fire protection systems for the campus. Construction of the powerhouse is scheduled to begin in the fall. Headquartered in Golden Valley, Minn., Honeywell’s Building Solutions business unit (HBS) has delivered energy efficiency- and power-focused projects during the past 10 years that are expected to save customers billions in utility and operational costs.
