Emerson secures control system contract for Kozienice unit

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.

The existing Kozienice plant is the second-largest power generating facility in Poland. Owned by Elektrownia Kozienice, it has 10 units with a total generating capacity of approximately 2900 MW.

At the new unit, the Ovation system will monitor and control all major plant components, including the MHPS boiler and turbine.

Emerson will also engineer several other specific applications needed for compliance with Polish grid requirements.
