ABB wins $35m thermal power deal in Turkey
Power firm set to work on 290MW plant in country's north-west
Turkey’s Vitkovice Power Engineering has awarded ABB a US $35 million deal to work on a turnkey electrical and automation solution for a 290 MW thermal power plant in Turkey. The Yunus Emre site, located in the country’s north-west, is owned by Adularya Energy, a member of Naksan Holding.
“ABB’s ability to provide an integrated electrical, control and instrumentation package combined with our project management experience will facilitate the efficient execution of the project. We will deploy the latest technologies, including our Symphony Plus automation and control platform, to maximise plant efficiency and reliability while minimising environmental impact,” said ABB Power Generation head Franz-Josef Mengede.
ABB will provide a turnkey solution that includes design, engineering, installation and commissioning. The company will be supplying the plant with equipment to include generator circuit breakers, medium and low voltage switchgear, and 380kV air insulated switchgear.
The thermal power plant consists of two 145 MW units, which will be controlled by ABB’s ‘Symphony Plus’ total plant automation system. The firm says that the system provides a simple system architecture and a scalable control platform that enables automation of all areas of the plant.
