SHARJAH, UAE – Japanese electrical engineering and software company Yokogawa Electric Corporation has secured its first order for a power and desalination plant in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
The company’s subsidiary Yokogawa Middle East & Africa received an order from the Sharjah Electricity & Water Authority (SEWA) to provide control systems for the Layyah Power and Desalination Station.
SEWA is retrofitting the control systems and auxiliary facilities for units 7 and 8 at the Layyah power and desalination station.
Each of these units comprises a 75 MW oil and gas-fired thermal power plant and a 27,000 m3/day multi-stage flash (MSF) desalination plant.
For this project, Yokogawa Middle East & Africa will deliver the CENTUM® VP integrated production control system for the boiler, turbine governor, turbine protection system and the desalination plant at each of these units, as well as the ProSafe®-RS safety instrumented system for burner management and boiler protection.
The company will also deliver field instruments such as the DPharp EJA series differential pressure/pressure transmitter, continuous emission monitoring systems (CEMS), and steam and water analysis systems (SWAS).
All work is scheduled for completion by September 2017.
