Siemens Energy has announced that its Instrumentation, Controls & Electrical (IC&E) business unit will supply the distributed control systems for five Oglethorpe Power Corporation (OPC) power plants.

Under the new contract, the company will upgrade the existing control systems for the OPC power plants with the Siemens Power Plant Automation T3000 (SPPA-T3000) system.

Siemens will supply the SPPA-T3000 upgrades for the Chattahoochee combined cycle energy facility and for OPC’s Smarr, Hawk Road, Sewell Creek and Talbot County simple cycle energy facilities, all of which are located in Georgia, US.

The first of the five upgrades will take place at the Chattahoochee Energy Facility during its November 2011 outage.

Siemens intends to execute the remaining projects between March 2011 and March 2014.

The firm will provide the control systems for the 17 gas turbines, one steam turbine, two heat recovery steam generators and the balance-of-plant controls spread across the various sites.
