Yokogawa wins key deal for Jeddah power plant
Tokyo, May 14, 2014
Yokogawa Electric Corporation has won an order from Hyundai Heavy Industries to supply various systems and products for Stage-1 of the Jeddah South supercritical oil-fired thermal power plant 1 project in Saudi Arabia.
The joint order recipients are Yokogawa Electric and a subsidiary, Yokogawa Middle East & Africa, said a statement.
The order includes control systems, safety instrumented systems, analysis systems and other products.
Jeddah South will be Saudi Arabia’s first supercritical thermal power plant, and is being built by a state-owned Saudi Electricity Company. Stage-1 of this project involves the construction of four 723 MW units producing a total of 2,892 MW. Unit 1 is scheduled to start operation in 2017.
For each of the four units, Yokogawa will supply the following:
1. Centum VP R5 integrated production control system for the control of the boiler and its auxiliary facilities, including all IEC61850-based electrical systems; a ProSafe-RS safety instrumented system (SIS); an ExaquantumTM plant information management system (PIMS); a plant operation training simulator
2. PK200 current-to-pneumatic converters
3. Liquid analysis system consisting of conductivity, pH, and residual chlorine analyzers
4. Duct gas analysis system consisting of oxygen, infrared gas, and TDLS200 tunable diode laser analyzers
Yokogawa Saudi Arabia, a subsidiary of Yokogawa Middle East & Africa, will be responsible for the engineering and commissioning of the DCSs, SISs, and PIMSs. Yokogawa Electric and Yokogawa Electric Korea will be responsible for the engineering and delivery of the current-to-pneumatic converters and the analysis systems, said the statement.
Yokogawa has executed a number of large oil and gas and petrochemical projects and provided more than 80 control systems for power plant and power plant utilities throughout the Middle East.
Supercritical thermal power plants are highly efficient and produce fewer greenhouse gases than conventional power plants, and it is expected that more plants of this type will be constructed in Saudi Arabia and other countries. - TradeArabia News Service
