Steam boiler controls
A utility with an aged steam boiler plant was struggling with the availability due to a malfunctioning controls system. Due to the significant age of the plant the management was reluctant to replace the existing system with a new OEM system at a high cost. CPS was asked to provide a customized solution.
- CPS evaluated the functionality of the existing plant controls system and quickly identified the critical issues.
- The CPS team was able to overhaul the existing controls system as well as add new functionality and improved human-machine interface design for easier operation for the plant.
- The implementation of the CPS controls system was made at a significantly lower cost as compared to replacing the existing design with a new OEM application.
