ABB has won an order worth $18 million from Gujarat State Electricity Company Ltd for the renovation and modernization of control systems at the utility's 1,260- mw Wanakbori thermal power plant in Gujarat. The order was booked in the first quarter.

ABB will install its proven SymphonyTM distributed control system (DCS) and supply the complete control and instrumentation package for the 6x210-mw thermal power plant. The solution will include diagnostics and optimization packages, turbine controls, steam generator control, station controls and instrumentation, a steam and water analysis system (SWAS), flue gas analyzers, control valves, actuators and positioners. The project is scheduled to be completed by 2013.

"Our Symphony technology, domain expertise and proven project execution capabilities enable us to provide an integrated solution and will help to improve plant efficiency and reliability," said Franz Josef Mengede, head of ABB's Power Generation business within the Power Systems division.

There are more than 6,000 Symphony platform-based DCS installations around the world, a large number of them in the power generation and water sectors. These control systems help plant owners to reduce operating costs and increase return on asset investment.

Gujarat State Electricity Corporation is a wholly owned subsidiary of Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam, a power generation company with an installed capacity of about 5,000 mw, delivering electricity in Gujarat, through four discoms.
