Asian Power Awards 2015 - silver for the Taichung project

On 2nd September in Bangkok “Oscars” in the energy industry in the region of Asia and the Pacific were awarded.

The project of stoking improvement implemented in cooperation with PROCOM SYSTEM in the largest coal plant in the world (10x550MW) in Taichung on Taiwan was awarded a silver medal in the “Coal Power Project of the Year” category.

The project was recognized due to the fact that improvement of the stoking steering system was conducted without stopping the automation system, that is on-line. All tests, installation of cabinets and start-up of the steering systems were carried out during full operation of blocks. During improvement stoking involved: coal unloading (from ships), coal storage in spoil tips and filling up of block silos (10x10).

Start-up on the structure lasted from January 2014 to July 2014 and turned out to be a full success. All steering systems were transferred to the new system without exceeding the deadline. The old tele automatics Teleperm-M system was updated to the latest version of the DCS SPPA-T3000 system by Siemens.

On behalf of PROCOM SYSTEM the project was managed by Łukasz Gamrat. We would like to thank Łukasz and all employees who have contributed to the completion of the task.
