Honeywell Selected by Hyundai Engineering to Support Kenya's Energy Needs
Experion Process Knowledge System to Ensure Safety, Reliability and Efficiency of Kenya's Largest Geothermal Project
Experion PKS will be used to integrate data from Olkaria's different operating systems and share that information with the plant's workforce, enabling them to make quicker, better- informed decisions. It will also be used to centralize control room strategies. The system will feature an integrated operator interface and incorporate physical security, emergency shutdown and fail-safe controls. Honeywell will also provide project management and engineering expertise, some of which will be on-site.
Experion PKS will be implemented at KenGen's Olkaria I and IV power plants - each with a capacity of 140 megawatts. The project is the largest geothermal project in Kenya.
"We are providing KenGen with a state-of-the-art control system that improves availability, reduces downtime and protects asset investment," said Darius Adamczyk, president-Honeywell Process Solutions. "Together with Hyundai Engineering, we are developing a solution that generates continuous and reliable power to meet Kenya's needs."
"From the early design stages, Honeywell has advised us on technical specifications and cost reduction methodologies," said SH Keum, Hyundai Engineering's chief engineer on the project. "We selected Honeywell for its robust technology and strong team of engineers who have been working with us to create and deliver a total solution that meets KenGen's requirements. With the solution in place, the new power plants will be able to operate in a sustainable manner as they can increase production while consuming fewer raw materials, putting KenGen in a strong position for the future."
