Emerson technology facilitates 1000 MW power plant in China

Emerson Process Management is automating two new 1000 MW ultra-supercritical units at the Jiangsu Xinhai coal power plant in China with its Ovation expert control system.

The technology will monitor and control boilers and turbines at the units built by Jiangsu Guoxin Investment Group, which replace two old, less-efficient 220 MW units that have been decommissioned, reports PowerEngineering.com.

Emerson Process Management Power & Water Solutions president Bob Yeager said industry leaders like Jiangsu Guoxin Investment Group understand the importance of choosing the right automation for ultra-supercritical and supercritical power plants.

"We are pleased to apply our automation and control expertise and technology at the Jiangsu Xinhai plant, helping to ensure these new ultra-supercritical units operate safely and efficiently for years to come," said Yeager.
