Invensys signs third China agreement
Safety and control systems for China Nuclear Power Engineering
Invensys Operations Management, an international provider of technology and software systems to manufacturing and infrastructure operations industries, has signed a third project-based agreement with China Nuclear Power Engineering Co (CNPE).
Tasked with providing CNPE with safety and distributed control systems and solutions for the Fujian Fuging Nuclear Power Plant, Invensys is to implement its Triconex critical control, Foxboro I/A series distributed control systems and human-machine interface solutions to help the plant achieve control, safety and environmental excellence.
“We are pleased to have reached further agreement with CNPE as they increase China’s power generation capacity,” said Sudipta Bhattacharya, president and CEO of Invensys, referring to the two previous agreements between the two bodies in 2008 and 2010.
Invensys has previously developed and supplied several large-scale safety and non-safety distributed control systems, including fully digitised main control rooms to eight nuclear power units currently under construction in China.
