Emerson Process Management is replacing gas and steam turbine controls, as well as balance of plant (BOP) controls, at the Felipe Carrillo Puerto power plant in Valladolid, Mexico. The 220 MW, 2×1 combined cycle plant is owned by Comisíon Federal de Electricidad (CFE).

The plant’s existing Siemens controls had been in use since the plant began commercial operation in the early 1990s. The controls will be replaced with Emerson’s PlantWeb digital plant architecture with Ovation control technology, the company said.

Specifically, Ovation technology will perform data acquisition and directly control the plant’s two Siemens V.84.2 gas turbines, Kraftwerk Siemens steam turbine, gas and steam turbine hydraulic governors, steam bypass, turbogenerator, two B&W heat recovery steam generators (HRSGs) and balance of plant equipment and systems. Emerson is supplying 11 Ovation controllers, 15 workstations, its AMS Suite predictive maintenance software, 30 Rosemount 3051 transmitters and a UPS system.

Emerson met a 10-month delivery schedule, as specified in the contract. When the retrofit is complete in April, the Ovation system will manage more than 6000 I/O points, Emerson said.
