Control systems to be supplied to thermal plant in South Korea

Emerson Process Management's Ovation control system will be installed at the Taean thermal power plant in South Korea, which is expected to come online in 2016.

12/03/2013


Emerson Process Management will install its Ovation control system at two 1,050-megawatt, ultra-supercritical, coal-fired power generating units under construction at the Taean thermal power plant in South Korea.

Expected to come online in 2016, the new units will provide electricity required to support the growth of Asia’s fourth-largest economy. The $11 million contract was awarded by Daelim Industrial Co. Ltd., one of South Korea’s largest construction firms and the primary contractor for the Taean plant. The two new units will boost the plant’s capacity to 6,100 megawatts, making the 10-unit power-generating facility the largest in the country.

At each of the two new units, the Ovation system will monitor and control all major plant components, including the BHK boiler and Hitachi turbine. The system’s ability to unify boiler and turbine operations was an important consideration in Daelim’s selection of Emerson because tight control of boilers, turbines and balance-of-plant processes helps ensure more reliable and efficient plant operation.

Emerson will also supply process-optimization technologies and a high-fidelity simulator for testing and training.

The Taean plant, owned by Korea Western Power Co. Ltd., is located roughly 60 miles southwest of Seoul.
