Emerson Process Management Upgrades One of Europe's Largest Thermal Power Plants

Emerson Process Management has completed an automation upgrade for an 800 MW unit in Russia’s Surgut-2 Power Plant, one of the largest thermal power stations in Europe. Emerson, the main automation contractor for the project, completed the upgrade during a four-month shutdown.

Previously, the unit used vintage analog controls. Emerson’s technology will help operators improve operational efficiencies and reliability.

As the Surgut-2 Power Plant supplies power and heat to Western Siberia and the Ural region and is the most powerful thermal plant in Russia, customers in those regions should notice the improvements soon.

The Surgut-2 station uses natural gas coming from the Tyumen Region’s oil fields. Based on annual output, the plant is one of the biggest thermal power stations in the world, producing more than 35 billion kWh per year.
