Control Systems for Thermo-solar and Photovoltaic Plants



About the project:

One of the most important projects we have carried out was at the Thermo -solar plant of 100MW de Kathu (Sudáfrica). It was developed for our client SIEMENS using PCS7 environement and integrated by redundant SIMATIC S7-410-5H CPUs. These plants entail a high level of decentralized automation and a big number of communications with very different protocols to be able to integrate to the equipment of multiple manufacturers. In this particular case, despite the restrictive deadline that was provided if we take into account the complexity of the project, our engineering team developed an intense coordination work plan and they intensified their effort to meet the deadline without compromising in any way the final results.
