Mainova AG supplies the Rhein-Main region with electricity, natural gas, heat, and water. The Niederrad heat and power plant, built in 1967, has been modernized several times in recent years. In order to ensure efficient energy production in the long term, modernization of the controls systems in the medium-pressure boiler became necessary.

Project description

The object of the contract is to upgrade the electrical and controls systems of the medium-pressure boiler, with process engineering adaptation to allow operation without constant supervision. The system is also to be able to start up from a stand-by mode. INP International Projects is providing planning (basic and detail engineering, enclosure planning), I&C components, commissioning, and functionality demonstration for the boiler controls systems. Its consortium partner is Bartec Benke GmbH.
