Yokogawa Electric Corporation announces that its subsidiary, Yokogawa India Ltd., has won an order from NTPC Limited in India to supply control systems for the Kudgi supercritical coal-fired thermal power plant.
The Kudgi plant, which is being constructed in the Bijapur district in Karnataka state, will have a total output of 2,400 MW from three 800 MW units. This makes it the largest of NTPC’s supercritical thermal power plants, and the units are among the largest of their type in India. These also are the largest supercritical units that Yokogawa have ever supplied control systems for. Unit No. 1 is scheduled to start operation in June 2015.
For each of the three units at the Kudgi plant, Yokogawa will supply the CENTUM VP integrated production control system to control the boilers and their auxiliary facilities, DPharp EJA series differential pressure/pressure transmitters, oxygen and liquid analyzers, a CCTV system, a battery-powered UPS system, and a paging system. Yokogawa India will be responsible for executing the project, including engineering, installation, commissioning, and operator training. This is our fourth control system order for a supercritical coal-fired plant in India, bringing to 10 the total number of systems provided for such facilities in India.
