Emerson to automate supercritical power plant in India
The new units will help meet the energy needs of the region’s growing population
Emerson Process Management, a global business of Emerson, won an order from NTPC Limited to provide automation technologies and expertise for two new 800 MW supercritical generating units at the Darlipali Super Thermal Power Station in the Sundergarh District, Odisha, India.
The new units will help meet the energy needs of the region’s growing population. Unit 1 commissioning is expected in December 2017, with Unit 2 to follow three months later.
Emerson project teams will engineer, install and commission Ovation systems to monitor and control each unit’s supercritical boiler and critical balance-of-plant processes and equipment. Emerson will also provide its Rosemount Analytical online steam water analysis system and continuous emissions monitoring system, Rosemount pressure and level transmitters, and additional instrumentation.
Emerson previously worked with NTPC Limited, which is India’s largest power utility, to automate units at the Sipat, Simhadri, and Tanda power stations and is currently carrying out projects at several other sites.
