HART Plant of the Year Award Program

The only international public award presented to end user companies to recognize ingenuity in the application of the HART Communication Protocol.

This is a supplier-independent awards program presented annually by the HART Communication Foundation. Selection is based on use of HART technology, not on size of the installation. The best candidates are plants that use the full range of HART capabilities:

  • A plant that has taken the capabilities of HART instruments beyond configuration and calibration
  • A plant that is using real-time diagnostics and process variables of HART-enabled devices integrated with its control, information and safety systems


Answer a few questions about how your plant uses HART technology to improve operations, lower costs, better manage plant assets or support plant information needs. Key elements are real-time integration of diagnostics and multi-variable implementations with control, safety and asset management systems. Background information and supporting materials are welcome but are not required with the nomination.

Users can nominate themselves or suppliers can recommend a plant for recognition. Our goal is to promote only the application and use of HART technology, not to endorse a specific supplier’s products.



All publicity material is provided in advance of publication to the HART Plant of the Year recipient for review and approval. Please be sure your company is willing to have its capabilities featured in a published article.

The Foundation encourages nominations from all world areas. Award recipients are determined solely by members of the HART Plant of the Year Awards Committee.
