SIPOS fieldbus solution supports RWE scheme

5 January 2012

SIPOS Aktorik’s full system integration capability, including fieldbus competency, has been confirmed with its role managing the DCS commissioning of over 2,000 actuators at the Neurath power plant, BoA 2/3 in Germany. The landmark project illustrates the company’s DCS integration capabilities and strength in providing tailored customer solutions. The installation is understood to be the industry’s first actuator application to integrate PROFIBUS DP with V2 services for enhanced communication capability.

Reporting on the brief, SIPOS advises that, with Siemens as the main DCS supplier, the protocol was specifically adapted to meet the plant’s requirements. Focus was put on DP V2 redundancy functions according to PNO 2.21.2; synchronisation of inputs / outputs and DP V2 time-stamping of events in accordance with PNO 2.192.

As part of the fieldbus functionality provided by SIPOS, the company’s actuators are connected to the plant’s control system via PROFIBUS DP. The actuators’ fieldbus interface has been programmed by SIPOS and accurate torque curve recordings have been ensured. A capability to oversee fibre-optic installations for the plant’s PROFIBUS DP-V2 network also formed a key part of SIPOS’ support programme for the scheme.

BoA 2/3 is the world’s largest lignite power plant, which is owned by the RWE Power Group and includes some of the world’s most advanced steam turbine and generator technology. Latest technology will result in high efficiency and considerably reduce carbon dioxide emissions per kWh, compared with existing lignite-fired power plants.

SIPOS’ credentials for RWE include the supply of over 1,000 actuators to the power group’s BoA 1 power plant in Niederaussem: this project endorsed SIPOS’ technical lead spearheading fieldbus actuation solutions.
