Alstom’s Energy Management Business is offering its Series 6 suite of power plant control and automation technology to the North American market, the company reported.
Designed for all types of power plants, Series 6 provides all the necessary software applications, IT control layers, equipment and services that power providers and service operators require, the company reports.
To support deployment of Distributed Control System solutions across North America, Alstom has established a project and engineering center in Richmond, VA.
Alstom provides integrated power plant solutions and associated services for a wide variety of energy sources, including hydro, nuclear, gas, coal and wind.
Recently, Alstom was awarded the contract to install its Series 6 system on the world’s largest coal-fired power plant, Eskom’s Medupi plant in South Africa. That plant, and its sister plant, are under construction. When completed, each will have an output of almost 4800 MW.
