Hanwha Total Petrochemical: Leading the Way

  • Hanwha Total Petrochemical: Leading the Way

  • Hanwha Total Petrochemical is currently undergoing Smart Plant Upgrades – a three-year 30 billion Korean Won project to upgrade Hanwha plants into Smart Plants.

    [March 22, 2018] When the upgrade is complete in 2019, thousands of sensors will be installed to track the production line, detect faults, and monitor logistics across all of the company’s plants in Korea.

  • Hanwha Total Petrochemical employees are the first in Korea to carry explosion-proof smartphones. Workers can now maintain voice communication and exchange data while operating in hazardous environments.

    Specially insulated electronics are required when operating in petrochemical plants, as stray sparks and heat may cause fumes to ignite. Hanwha Total Petrochemical’s explosion-proof smartphones have an added advantage over traditional walkie-talkies as they also allow for plant data to be sent and received while workers are on the move.

  • Hanwha Total Smart Order allows customers to directly purchase Hanwha Total Petrochemical products online from desktop, tablets or smartphones. Customers can then perform end-to-end tracking of their orders from the plant to final delivery.
  • Hanwha Total Petrochemical is a global leader in energy efficiency and environmental sustainability. Its Energy Management Optimization System (EMOS) monitors and prioritizes energy usage in real time.

    EMOS is a part of Hanwha Total Petrochemical’s smart plant upgrade project. The system helps the company adjust energy use automatically and thereby reduce overall energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.

  • Hanwha Total Petrochemical aims to reduce energy costs across its plants by 2 to 4 percent annually. The company is developing more sophisticated green production technologies that have less impact on the environment, reduce waste and recycle by-products.
  • Hanwha Total Petrochemical’s Safety, Health, Environment, and Quality Policy maintains some of the highest health and safety standards in the world. Our company promotes a safety-first work culture and mindset.
  • In recognition of Hanwha Total Petrochemical’s commitment to safety, the company was awarded an International Safety Rating System Level 8 (ISRS 8) by the rating agency DVN GL.

    The company is only one of a handful of companies in the world to achieve ISRS 8, the highest rating ever issued by DVN GL. Hanwha Total Petrochemical is hard at work to become the world’s first organization to achieve ISRS 9 and ISRS 10, the highest ratings possible.

  • As a company that represents the nation of South Korea, Hanwha Total Petrochemical has set a global standard for plant operations and the manufacture of high-quality petrochemical products.
