  1. ABB wins Vietnam coal plant automation deal

    ABB has won a repeat order from Doosan Heavy Industries to automate a 600 MW supercritical coal-fired power plant in Vietnam. The project is an expansion of the Vinh Tan 4 plant east of Ho Chi Minh City and once completed, it is die to add an extra 5600 MW to the national grid. ABB’s Symphony Plus automation system will control the plant’s boiler, turbine generator and auxiliaries. The contract comes after ABB also won an order from Singapore-based Jurong Engineering to utilise the Symphony Plus system at what will be the largest combined cycle power plant in Myanmar. The 225 MW plant, which is due for completion in 2018, is in the Myingyan district of Mandalay and is the country’s first gas-fired power station . It will be operated by Sembcorp Utilities and supply power to Myanmar Electric Power Enterprise under a 22-year power purchase agreement. Symphony Plus system will control the entire facility, including the turbine, heat recovery steam generator and its auxiliaries, and balance-of-plant. Speaking at Asia Power Week in Seoul last week, Manjay Khazanchi, head of the Asia Pacific hub of ABB’s Power Generation unit, said: “A huge transformation in energy demand is taking place globally, and the focus is now on Asia. “Over the next two decades, Asia accounts for three-quarter of projected global energy demand, driven by rapid industrialization, population growth and urbanization. While the world is moving away from coal, Asia’s dependence on it is becoming inevitable.” “Even so, the deployment of clean coal technology will represent more than half of total installed capacity, ensuring higher efficiency and lower emissions from coal generation.”
