Emerson Process Management is to install its Ovation control system at a 1075 MW ultra-supercritical coal plant which is being built at Kozienice power station in Poland.

The contract was awarded by Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS), the EPC contractor for the project, which is expected to be operational in 2016.
