Upgrade of ABB turbine control
The opportunity for upgrade was presented when the IBW Virginal’s existing WW 505 control (obsolete version) had failed, and required replacem ent (including supply, installation and commissioning) all within 3 weeks. IBW Virginal opted for the HEINZMANN Si-TEC Xtend CGC-T system to not only upgrade but also improve their ABB turbine control.The control strategy requested by IBW was “Automatic Inlet Pressure Control” with the option of operating in “Automatic Base Load kW Control”.
Through the assistance of our French distributor NCG (Normandy Controls Group), who helped us secure and win this project, they successfully supplied, installed and commissioned 1 x Si-TEC CGC-T system within 16 days, exceeding their client’s expectations.
With the successful commissioning and performance of the their 4.7 MW ABB T/G, IBW are now looking at upgrading their other turbine generator controls utilizing the many beneficial features of the Heinzmann Si-TEC Xtend CGC-T steam turbine control system.
