Emerson to Automate Two 1,050 MW Units at South Korea Power Plant
Emerson Process Management, a business of Emerson, will install its Ovation control system at two 1,050-MW coal-fired power generating units under construction at the Taean thermal power plant in South Korea. Ovation technology will be installed at five of South Korea’s six largest coal-fired power plants. The $11 million contract was awarded by Daelim Industrial Co. Ltd., one of South Korea’s largest construction firms and is expected to come online in 2016. The two new units will boost the plant’s capacity to 6,100 MW, making the 10-unit power-generating facility the largest in the country.
