Emerson to Help Hitachi Zosen Inova Provide Environmentally Friendly Power

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 3/8/2016, Location: Europe

Emerson Process Management, a global business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), will provide process automation technologies and services for current and future waste-to-energy projects of Hitachi Zosen Inova.

Emerson’s automation technologies, combined with its expertise and experience, help plants operate reliably and safely with minimal downtime and maintenance. Zurich-based Hitachi Zosen Inova specializes in thermal and biological treatment of municipal waste, and with experience on more than 600 projects worldwide, is a leader in the generation of energy using waste as fuel.

Under a global framework agreement, Emerson has been selected as a preferred supplier responsible for providing automation technologies including control and safety systems, predictive maintenance software, control valves and measurement devices, and services such as engineering, project management and lifecycle care.

The agreement formalizes the relationship between the two companies following a successful project at Perlen, near Lucerne, Switzerland. The US$319 million (CHF 320 million) Perlen project is the largest climate protection project in central Switzerland. The facility is set to produce 155,000 MWh of electricity per year, covering the energy requirements of nearly 38,000 households, and will supply 320,000 MWh of steam to an adjacent paper mill.

“We are working in close collaboration with Emerson on a number of ongoing energy-from-waste installations,” said Douglas Else-Jack, head of supply management at Hitachi Zosen Inova. “The successful completion of the Perlen project demonstrates our confidence in Emerson’s expertise is fully justified.”

Hitachi Zosen Inova supplied a complete advanced combustion system, boiler and flue gas treatment at the Perlen plant, while Emerson provided engineering, installation, commissioning, startup and servicing of over 600 critical measurement instruments. Using Emerson’s advanced measurement technologies that incorporate a range of diagnostic functions, operators will be able to optimize plant performance and minimize maintenance.

“Hitachi Zosen Inova is showing the way by combining innovative solutions with tried and tested technology, and we are delighted to help them meet their customers’ needs,” said Roel Van Doren, president of Emerson Process Management - Europe. “Using Emerson’s advanced automation technology and project management services to enable safe and efficient plant operation, together we can make a significant contribution to environmentally friendly power generation.”

Emerson is currently working with Hitachi Zosen Inova on further waste-to-energy projects in Europe, including three in the U.K.
