January 27th, 2015, Published in Articles: Energize, Articles: EngineerIT


Yokogawa Engineering has received an order for the control systems for the Thai Binh coal-fired thermal power plant in Vietnam. The Thai Binh coal-fired power plant is being built in northern Vietnam by Vietnam Electricity (EVN), a national power company. The plant will have two 300 MW units, giving the plant a total output of 600 MW. The first unit is scheduled to start operation in October 2017. The company’s Centum VP integrated production control system and the Exaquantum plant information management system will act as an integrated control and monitoring system for the boilers, turbines, and auxiliary facilities throughout the plant. The company will be responsible for the engineering and delivery of these systems, and will provide support with installation, commissioning, and operator training. The delivery of all systems for the first unit is expected to be completed by September 2016. The company also offers a range of pressure transmitters, temperature sensors, flow meters, level sensors, and liquid and gas analysers.
