Yokogawa to control combined cycle power plant in Trinidad
This power plant is being built near La Brea, a town on the south side of Trinidad Island. With a capacity of 720 MW, this will be the largest power plant in Trinidad and Tobago, a country with a vibrant economy that is rich in oil and natural gas resources. Scheduled to be completed in July 2011, the plant will meet the countrys rising demand for electricity.
This new power plant will have six gas turbines, six exhaust gas heat recovery steam generators, two steam turbines, and auxiliary facilities. Yokogawa will provide a range of systems and products including a CENTUM series integrated production control system to control all of these facilities, the ProSafe-RS Safety Instrumented System for detecting abnormal conditions and safely initiating emergency shutdowns, the Exaquantum Plant Information Management System for recording and retrieving historical data, and the PRM integrated device management software package, as well as engineering and commissioning services.
Yokogawa was able to win this large project for MAN Ferrostaal Industrial Projects GmbH because it demonstrated an extensive track record with combined cycle power plants, including MAN Ferrostaals control system order in 2005 for the Termozulia Combined Cycle Power Plant (total capacity: 500 MW) in Venezuela; and a project approach that utilizes the combined strengths of the Yokogawa Group to provide optimal solutions to customers
While the global market for power plant control systems is growing at a decreased rate following the economic downturn that began last year, robust growth is expected over the long term due to the increasing demand for electricity in newly industrialized countries. In recent years, Yokogawa has received a large number of orders for electricity projects around the world. Encouraged by the success in winning this order, Yokogawa aims in fiscal year 2010 to achieve sales of 30 billion yen in the global power plant control system market.
