Hyundai Engineering & Construction (Hyundai E&C) has awarded a contract to Yokogawa Electric Korea to supply a control system for the Punta del Tigre combined cycle power plant (CCPP) project, which is claimed to be the first combined cycle power project in Uruguay.

As per the contract, Yokogawa will supply a Centum VP integrated production control system to monitor and control all plant facilities, including gas turbines, exhaust-heat-recovery boilers and steam turbines.

The company will also deliver an Exaquantum plant information management system and DPharp EJA/EJX differential pressure/pressure transmitters for the power project.

In addition to this, the company will be responsible for the engineering, installation and commissioning of these products. It will also provide operator training services.

"The company will be responsible for the engineering, installation and commissioning of these products."

In November 2012, a consortium of Hyundai, Hyundai E&C and KEPCO KPS had secured a $620m order from La Administracion Nacional de Usinas y Trasmisiones Electricas (UTE) for the Punta del Tigre power plant.

Hyundai E&C was responsible for engineering, purchase and construction, while Hyundai was assigned to manage the entire project and providing an integrated solution. KEPCO KPS was responsible for operating and managing the plant after the completion of the construction.

In April 2013, Siemens Energy secured a contract from Hyundai E&C to supply two SGT5-2000E gas turbines with the associated generators for the Punta del Tigre project.

The power plant will have a total installed output of 535MW and will run on both natural gas and diesel. The two power units are set to commence operations in fall/winter 2015/2016.
