Opening of the Centre of Excellence for Power in Korea We are very proud that we have a new Centre of Excellence
Recognising the growth of our power business in Korea, Emerson opened the Center of Excellence for Power to cater to the needs of power customers in Korea. The Center was opened by Patrick Deruytter (General Manager of Korea), SeongJu Heo (Director of Operations), YongHyuk Kim (Division Manager for Sales) and Denis Lawlor (Director of AP Operations) on 31 March 2008. The center will have a large staging area of 800 square meters with the capability to stage up to 300 cabinets at any point of time. In addition to the large staging area, there will be a state
of the art training center with a professional trainer dedicated to conducting a full range of training for Korean customers. With about 60 engineers and 80,000 man hours a year, Korea will be one of the biggest centres for PWS in Asia. Says YH Kim, ‘’Korea is one of the targeted countries where business has grown tremendously in the last couple of years. We have won several large retrofit and green field projects such as the Boryeong Retrofit and Yonghung Phase II in recent years. The PWS team has a clear goal to become the leader in the Power Industry for the Control and Instrumentation industry in Korea.’’
Success in 1000MW Segment Continues in China Emerson China signed an agreement with Tianjin Jinneng power company in February 2008 to provide DCS control systems to Beijiang Electric Co Unit #1 and Unit # 2. Says Kenn Wang, Senior Sales Representative “The customers expressed satisfaction with Ovation’s friendly operation interface, open system structure and advanced capability guidelines.”

Cross Division Pursuit Helps Win First PWS Plantweb Project in India The first Plantweb win in India for Emerson Process Management, Power & Water Solutions, involves 3000 HART-AMS tags for 2 x 130MW and 1 x 210MW from Bhushan Power & Steel. The overall scope of supply includes DCS for Boiler and BOP that includes 10 OCR400 controllers, 12 workstations and 1 Historian per unit. The team, which included Sheel Bhatnagar (Senior Director for Business Development), Kamal Singh (Director for Sales); Malayendra Chatterjee (Regional Manager for Sales), Nitin Gupta (Marketing) and Dhrubo Mitra (Branch Manager) was competing against strong competitors like Siemens, ABB, Honeywell and Yokogawa.
Good Relationship Clinches The Deal At Samarinda, Indonesia A long-standing good relationship between Emerson, Samarinda and RollsRoyce, at site and head office, won the contract for migration of the existing WDPF to Ovation for the Samarinda combined cycle power at East Kalimantan Indonesia. The gas turbine power plant generates 60MW controlled by WDPF and 20MW controlled by PLC for the town of Samarinda. Says Andrew Geow, “We migrated from redundant WDPF to Ovation (OCR400) redundant. Existing WDPF MMIs were migrated to Ovation MMI (OS/EWS/Historian/Performance Calculator).”
Beijiang power plant is the first 1000MW project by SDIC Power Group, who considered DCS vendors carefully with a view to a long term working relationship during the selection process. The technology and experience of Emerson’s Ovation stood out from strong competition to win this contract.
Better Solutions by Emerson Win Shuaiba North Co-Generation CCPP in Kuwait
Min KyeongTae Sales Manager
Jeong JaeSung Project Manager
The main competitor for the DCS contract for Hyundai Engineering & Construction Co., Ltd’s Shuaiba North CoGeneration CCPP was Hyundai Heavy Industries (Max Control), which has a strong relationship with the customer. But with demonstrated technical advantages and strong execution capability, Emerson secured the contract, which includes DCS based on the Ovation system, low fidelity simulator, small size ERP, DCS training and field service. The plant performs two important functions for the Shuabia North CCPP in Kuwait. It produces electrical power (3 combustion turbines, 3 HRSG and 1 steam turbine) and also produces fresh water from sea water (one desalination plant). It is owned by Kuwait’s Ministry of Electricity & Water (MEW).
Major Wins Emerson Trusted To Keep The Power On In Thailand
Co-Ordinated Effort By Emerson Clears The Way For Success At Tanda, India
The Bang Pakong Power Plant is owned by Thailand’s largest power producer, the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT). The 3,680 MW plant is Thailand’s biggest thermal power plant, providing 25% of the country’s electricity needs. Because of its vital role, EGAT needs to ensure that the Bang Pakong plant continues to operate in top condition. Open bids to replace the Toshiba control system with a stateof-the-art system were evaluated in April 2008. After a thorough qualification and evaluation process, considering proposals from ABB, GE, Honeywell, Siemens, Toshiba, MHI, Invensys and YEW, Emerson Process Management was selected to supply the Ovation expert control system to the plant. A key factor for choosing to migrate to Emerson technology was the ability to expand the control system to accommodate potential plant changes. Ovation’s open architecture allows easy expansion to keep pace with plant modifications.
Tanda Thermal Power Station(4 x 110MW) was taken over by NTPC Limited, the country’s largest producer of power, in the Year 2000. After taking over the plant, NTPC decided to go for Renovation and Modernization (R&M) of this Plant. NTPC Alstom Power Services Limited (NASL) a 50-50 Joint Venture company between NTPC and Alstom Power Services Limited was awarded the R&M of the SG-Control sytem which included FSSS. In Dec 07, Emerson India, PWS was awarded the job of Design, Engineering, Manufacture, Testing, and Supply of SG-Control System with Commissioning, PG Test and Handover of the SGControl Package for all the four Units at Tanda Site. The delivery of the first unit (Unit #3) was only four months away as the unit will shutdown in support of the upcoming R&M Activities. Major bottleneck in achieving this aggressive schedule was the availability of Ovation Hardware and Cabinets which require long lead time. This was further compounded by the fact that the power to the system was 24 VDC and the Ovation 24 VDC – 24 VDC supplies have a significantly longer lead time compared to the normal Ovation Power Supplies. With the help of PWS Supply Chain and senior management, power supplies were expedited for Tanda Unit #3. With the Ovation Hardware in place, the vendor for cabinets was sourced, supplying the required cabinets in ten days. Simultaneously engineering activities were started. Application Software was done by India Engineering Centre, (IEC) and the Hardware/ Panel Engineering by (Emerson India). Emerson India Procurement team also expedited the various buyouts. Design approvals from NTPC/NASL were obtained across the table thereby compressing the approval cycle for the documents. NTPC/NASL personnel visited IEC to review the progress of the application software prior to sending it to the factory for the FAT(Factory Acceptance Test), thereby reducing the time taken to demonstrate application software during the FAT. Authorize To Ship Tests for Tanda Unit #3 was concluded successfully and the system has been cleared to be dispatched to site. 4
