Control system solution for power and desalination station

16 January 2017

Yokogawa Middle East & Africa has 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, auxiliary facilities, and utilities 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 per day multi-stage flash (MSF) desalination plant: a technology that involves the heating and evaporation of seawater in multiple vacuum distillation tanks to produce steam, which is then condensed to produce fresh water. 

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). In addition to being responsible for engineering, the company will provide support for the installation and commissioning of these systems, with all work scheduled for completion by September 2017.
