Tasks

Our customer is the world's largest producer of polypropylene and polyethylene. The company's own industrial power plant at its Wesseling site near Cologne was to be modernized.

Project description

The emphasis was above all on increasing availability and restructuring the automation solution, in order to avoid expensive downtimes in production. The task involved migrating all systems and ancillary systems from Teleperm M, ME and B to XP. Specifically, this involves four fossil fuel-fired boilers, six steam turbines, oil and gas supply, coal feeding (dry lignite), feed water, process steam, flare gas compression, condensate system and cooling water system.

Ultimately, because of its expertise in the Teleperm XP control system, INP International Projects received the order to migrate all systems during ongoing operation. A feasibility study was undertaken in a preliminary project, while the resulting concept was started in close cooperation with various service departments of the customer.

SUB-PROJECT DESCRIPTION

MIGRATION OF THE LIGNITE SUPPLY FOR BOILER 5

Before migration of the boiler system for the lignite-fired steam generator, the lignite supply was migrated from the old PLC technology in 2009, and completely integrated into the control system. The lignite supply chiefly consists of a bunker silo for the lignite dust and subsequent pneumatically filled storage and receiver container.
