Delivering efficiencies for 630MW power plant

11 January 2021

Automation technology will provide efficiencies, plant and turbine control benefits, environmental impact improvements, regulatory compliance and greater cyber security capabilities for a power plant in Turkey.

ABB has signed a contract with Yatagan Termik Santrali Enerji Uretim A.S, an independent power producers in Turkey. ABB will provide critical integrated control, cyber security and automation technology to the Yatagan power plant, which produces 630MW of power to homes and businesses in the south-western part of the country. 
The plant will deploy automation technology in order to generate significant improvements in efficiency, greater flexibility around energy output and an ability to decrease outputs when  demand decreases.  The modernisation project, which has already begun, will see the implementation of a new distributed control system (DCS for plant and turbine control.  

ABB will also provide electrical integration solutions and a high-speed busbar transfer system over IEC61850 protocol.  
ABB’s technology will help ensure compliance with European environmental regulations, as well as  Primary Frequency Control (PFC) regulation. Built-in data connectivity means that the plant’s systems will be future-proofed and will enable the seamless integration of further digitalisation solutions, such as  
advanced analytics or industrial AI. 
In addition, ABB Cyber Security Workplace will reinforce the plant’s existing cyber security capabilities, which is of particular importance to critical plants within Turkey’s energy infrastructure.
