10,000MW Crash Program

15 December 2008

Invensys Process Systems (IPS) has signed five contracts to make automation upgrades to five power plants on behalf of Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN Persero), Indonesia’s largest electricity producer. IPS will provide distributed control systems (DCS) and automation solutions to power plants located in Banten, Jawa Barat, Jawa Tengah and Jawa Timur, representing some 3,820MW of power generation capacity.

The automation upgrades at PLN Persero plants are part of a larger effort by the Indonesian government to expand the country’s power generation capacity. Dubbed the “10,000MW Crash Program” Indonesia aims to add 10,000MW of new capacity by 2010.

Demand for electrical power in Indonesia is expected to grow by at least 10% annually over the next six years, and unless the country improves efficiencies and shifts power generation to lower-cost coal and gas-powered facilities, it will not be able to keep pace with demands. IPS’ DCS automation solutions allow PLN Persero to set the stage for current and future planned upgrades, and more importantly, improve plant revenues by drastically improving plant reliability and operational efficiency.

The IPS solution provides key technological advantages, such as easy operation and maintenance in a single platform, applied with faster response and high reliability, and there is the potential for substantial cost savings for PLN Persero due to implementation of remote input/output in the instrument cable and marshalling cabinet. The integrated asset monitoring and diagnostic system supplied by IPS also performs predictive maintenance, further proving that IPS solutions combine service, technology and business knowledge to offer real-time convergence of plant operations and enterprise performance, further driving efficiency, production and value.

The DCS contract encompasses the installation of an advanced IPS I/A Series automation infrastructure, integrating more than 30,000 I/O points. The systems will be used to control the new plants’ boilers, turbines and generators, utilising IPS’ Performance Plus coordinated control system technology, well-proven in power plants worldwide. Subsystem applications will include data acquisition systems, furnace safety supervisory systems, boiler and turbine sequence control systems, turbine digital electro-hydraulic control systems, feed water pump mechanical electro-hydraulic control systems, electric control systems, and balance of plant systems.
