Control System Order for Combined Cycle Power Plant in Malaysia
CTCI Consortium — led by CTCI Corp., the largest engineering firm in Taiwan and a supplier of engineering, procurement and construction services — has ordered a control system and field devices from Yokogawa Kontrol (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd., an affiliate of Yokogawa Electric Corp., for the Kimanis combined cycle power plant. The plant generates electricity using gas turbines, from which the exhaust heat is directed to steam turbines to generate additional electricity.
The combined cycle power plant is being built for Kimanis Power Sdn. Bhd. in the Malaysian state of Sabah, in the northeast part of Borneo Island. The plant will have a total output of 300 MW via three 100 MW units. The first 100 MW units, currently under construction, are scheduled to start operation in December 2013.
- The order is for control and instrumentation, including:
- The Centum VP integrated production control systems for the power plant's boilers and its boiler and turbine auxiliary facilities.
- The ProSafe-RS safety instrumented system for safely shutting down the plant if any abnormal conditions occur.
- Exhaust gas analyzers.
- Differential pressure/pressure transmitters.
Yokogawa Kontrol (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd. will be responsible for project execution, including engineering, installation and commissioning services.
