Metso upgrades automation at Indian thermal power station

Instrumentation Limited has signed a contract with Metso for the upgrade of an automation system at the Parichha thermal power station located in Parichha (Jhansi), Uttar Pradesh, India.

Metso is set to modernise the existing Metso-supplied control system, which has reached the end of its lifecycle. The delivery includes system software and hardware, as well as site services.

As a result of the upgrade, the plant will be able to improve process efficiency and ensure safer process operation with better data collection, improved control, minimised device failures and fewer unplanned shutdowns.
