Yokogawa to supply two DCSes for Combined Cycle Power Plants

March 3, 2015 - Yokogawa Saudi Arabia received orders to deliver distributed control systems (DCS) for the PP13 and PP14 combined cycle power plants that the Saudi Electricity Company (SEC) is building in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia’s capital city.

The PP13 and PP14 plants will each have a combined net electric output of 1,980 MW. Power blocks 1 and 2 of the PP13 plant are scheduled to begin operating in May and October of 2016, respectively, while the two power blocks at PP14 are scheduled to start in November 2016 and April 2017.

Yokogawa Saudi Arabia will deliver the CENTUM VP integrated production DCS for the monitoring, control, and operation of these plants’ gas turbines, heat recovery boilers (HRSGs), steam turbines, and electric systems (IEC 61850) as well as a plant operator training simulator (OTS). The company will carry out all DCS engineering work and provide support for installation, commissioning, and training for operators. Delivery of these solutions is scheduled for the first half of 2016.

In 2012 Yokogawa Saudi Arabia also received an order for the Riyadh PP12 project, and will soon deliver a complete DCS and OTS solution for this 2,175 MW power plant.

After the completion of PP13 and PP14, Yokogawa DCS systems will be used to monitor and control operations at SEC power plants having a combined capacity of more than 10 GW.

As the result of flourishing economic and population growth, the demand for electricity has been increasing in Saudi Arabia and other Middle Eastern markets. The electric power market is expected to continue to expand throughout this region. Yokogawa aims to use this success in winning these orders to expand its power plant control business throughout the Middle East.
