Hollysys to provide Profibus DCS to power plant in China
July 16, 2013 - Hollysys Automation Technologies will provide its Profibus DCS to a power plant in China. The DCS will control more than 13,000 points and ProfiBus will control 3,600 distributed devices for the two 1GW ultra-supercritical thermal power generating units at the Fujian Hongshan Thermal Power Plant. This will be the largest ProfiBus application in GW level thermal power plant in China.
Dr. Changli Wang, Chairman and CEO of Hollysys, commented, "We are very proud of the contract win to apply our proprietary ProfiBus DCS to the largest scale of thermal power generating units in China, which evidenced our leading technology and capability. Since the end of last year, we restructured our marketing sales force and organized industry professional teams to further penetrate the high-end segments of industrial automation market, and we have gradually seen the fruitful results. Going into the future, we will continue to capture our fair share in the high-end market and intensify our sales efforts in the low to mid-end market to further enhance our market position, and create value for our shareholders."
ProfiBus is an universal, open fieldbus which links controllers or control systems with decentralized field devices like sensors and actuators on the field level and enables consistent data exchange with higher ranking communication systems. The consistency of ProfiBus is enabled by utilizing a single, standardized, application-independent communication protocol which supports fieldbus solutions both in factory and process automation. ProfiBus permits the fast communication with intelligent and distributed devices and brings enormous savings resulting from the reduction in cabling and input/output hardware, and can transmit significantly greater amount of information which implies significant cost advantages for plant operation and maintenance.
