Invensys supplies control systems for CNPE

Technology company Invensys Operations Management has signed a second long-term agreement with China Nuclear Power Engineering (CNPE) to provide safety and distributed-control systems for two 650MW pressurised-water reactor units, under construction on Hainan Island on the southern tip of China.

Under the terms of the contract, Invensys will provide its Triconex critical-control and Foxboro I/A Series distributed-control systems.

By providing a diverse, scalable distributed-control and safety solution, including advanced digital control-room design, safety display units, priority logic modules and defence-in-depth systems built on the Triconex and I/A Series systems, Invensys addresses CNPE’s safety and availability requirements.
