Aberthaw FGD Boiler Trip Panel

Application: Boiler Trip Panel
Installation Area: Aberthaw Power Station, UK
Client: Alstom Power Ltd

The Flue Gas Desulphurisation Project will reduce the emissions produced by the coal-fired power station. This will allow Aberthaw to operate under the new European environmental regulations defined in the Large Combustion Plant Directive (LCPD), which came into force on 1st January 2008. The trip panel provided was designed, built and programmed by SELLA CONTROLS. The panel employs a HIMA F35 safety PLC to provide SIL 1 interlock to the boiler. The logic responds to 3 analogue signals and 1 digital input from the plant. The logic was designed using HIMA ELOP Factory.

SELLA CONTROLS has provided two identical panels to date. Due to the choice of a programmable safety PLC, modifications and upgrades can easily be made to the functionality of the system as the project develops and throughout the lifetime of the plant.
