Yokogawa wins order for Rabigh 2 power project
Company to supply control systems to Samsung C&T F for power plant
The company will deliver a Centum VP integrated production control system for the monitoring and operation of all plant facilities, including the gas turbines, steam turbines, exhaust-heat-recovery boilers, and the control of exhaust-heat-recovery boilers.
Yokogawa will be responsible for engineering and will also provide support for installation, commissioning, and operator training. This system is scheduled to be delivered by the middle of next year.
The firm said in a statement that the winning of the order can be attributed to its solid track record in providing control systems to the power industry, including over 100 systems for combined cycle power plants, and to the strong engineering capabilities of Yokogawa Electric Korea.
The Rabigh 2 power plant will have three 700 megawatts (MW) combined cycle power units with gas turbines, giving it a total capacity of 2,100MW.
Rabigh 2 is being built for Al Mourjan Electricity Production Company, whose shareholders are the Saudi Electricity Company (50%) and a consortium consisting of Samsung C&T Corporation and ACWA Power International, an independent power producer.
The plant is scheduled to start operation in June 2017.
