Emerson to automate Coal-Fired Power Plant in Vietnam
The plant, owned by Hai Phong Thermal Power Joint Stock Co., is located in the Thuy Nguyen District, Haiphong Province. When all four 300-MW coal-fired units are operational, the plant will be the largest coal-fired power generation facility in Vietnam, and will play a key role in meeting the increasing demand for power in North Vietnam, estimated to be growing at 15 percent annually primarily due to burgeoning economic development in the region. Unit 1 is slated begin commercial operation June 2008, Unit 2 is expected to go into service six months later.
The Haiphong Power Plant is instrumental to meeting North Vietnams growing demand for electricity, said, Ren Wei Min, project manager, Dongfang Electric Group. Were confident that Emersons PlantWeb solution will contribute to the safe, reliable and efficient operation of these new units.
For Haiphong, Emersons comprehensive PlantWeb solution includes deployment of the Ovation control system for data acquisition, as well as for monitoring and control of the sequence control system, furnace safeguard supervisory system, and electrical control system for all major plant components, including the boiler, turbine, flue gas desulphurization system and balance of plant processes. In all, the Ovation solution, which will include the installation of a total of 36 Ovation redundant controllers and 26 workstations, will manage more than 24,000 I/O points.
In addition, Emerson will provide AMS Suite: Intelligent Device Manager asset management software for each unit, which will provide operators with data from HART intelligent field devices located throughout the plant. For new plant construction, AMS Device Manager streamlines device configuration and commissioning, thereby contributing to more efficient plant startup. AMS Device Manager also provides online access to instrument and valve diagnostics and automatic documentation of all field device maintenance information all contributing to ongoing efficiency of plant operations and maintenance activities.
Haiphong units 1 and 2 mark the beginning of what we hope will be a long and mutually beneficial relationship with Dongfang Electric Group, said Bob Yeager, president of Emersons Power & Water Solutions division. Were pleased that we were able to offer the leading-edge automation and control technologies they required, and are honored to be chosen for this project.
