Siemens Limited has announced that it has received an order from National Thermal Power Corporation Ltd. (NTPC) for the renovation and modernization of its Korba Stage-II (3X500MW) plant in Chhattisgarh. Siemens emerged as the first choice solution provider for the customer and won the order against stiff competition from three major players.
Siemens engineers will replace the existing system with the state-of-the-art, fourth-generation distributed control system - SPPA-T3000 (Siemens Power and Process Automation) for the entire plant, including its boiler and turbine control systems.
The SPPA-T3000 process control system combines the reliability of proven, real-time process controllers with new technologies to establish a simple and robust plat-form. The system is designed to provide real-time data – at the right place, at the right time – to give power plant owners and operators the information they need to make right decisions, thus proving their ability to be competitive.
