The Japanese company "Yokogawa Electric Corporation" on its official website announced that its subsidiary "Yokogawa Turkey Industrial Automation Solutions A. S." (Turkey) has received an order for the supply of a control system and field equipment to the “Zerger” gas turbine power plant in Turkmenistan.
According to the information, the order was received from the Turkish construction company "Renaissance Heavy industries", which is engaged in the construction of this power plant by order of HEC "Turkmenenergo" in Turkmenistan. It is noted that this project is the first project of the company "Yokogawa" in Turkmenistan to supply control systems to the power plant.
To monitor and control three gas turbines and auxiliary facilities, Yokogawa will supply an integrated production management system “CENTUM™ VP”, pressure and differential pressure transmitters of the “DPharp EJA™” series, and temperature transmitters “YTA610*2”. “Yokogawa” will be responsible for providing engineering support for the system during installation and commissioning, and the project will be completed by September this year.
Equipped with high-tech equipment, a gas turbine power plant is being built in the Chardjev etrap of the Lebap velayat. The capacity of the new gas turbine power plant will be 432 megawatts. A major investment project will be implemented jointly with “Sumitomo Corporation” and “Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems” (Japan), as well as “Rönesans Holding” (Turkey).
An extensive site for the new energy complex is set aside next to the current HPS "Lebap", which was commissioned in 2014 in the South of the Chardjev etrap. It is planned to install three gas turbine units with a capacity of 144 megawatts each in the main production building of the power plant, which will be supplied by the world-famous company "Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems".
In addition to the power units, an administrative building will be constructed, where the main control panel of the HPS, a gas distribution station, as well as all necessary engineering and technical communications will be located. The territory of the power plant will be landscaped and green.
