With its many performance and business benefits, FOUNDATION fieldbus is rapidly gaining user acceptance around the world. This fact is evidenced by two milestone projects recently announced in China. SECCO Petrochemicals Company Ltd. is constructing a new 10-plant petrochemical complex near Shanghai that will include more than 25,000 fieldbus devices. A second large installation will connect more than 12,000 fieldbus devices at a new petrochemical facility under construction northeast of Hong Kong. The project is a joint venture between leading Chinese industrial and business interests, including Shell Nanhai BV and China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC) Petrochemicals Investment Ltd. (CPIL).
