AMEC awarded Industrial Technology Systems (ITS) a contract to design, configure, implement and test the PLC and SCADA hardware and software for the Siemens PCS 7 control system to be installed at National Grid’s Churchover site, in Warwickshire.

Designed by ITS’ engineers, this control system comprises two Siemens PCS 7 servers; three Siemens dual-redundant PCS 7 controllers on a fault-tolerant industrial Ethernet network; two operator stations; dual-redundant I/O and power supplies.

Its systems comprise: Fire and Gas, which monitors all air spaces where a fire or accumulation of flammable gas may occur and alerts personnel to potentially hazardous situations; Station Protection, which shuts down the gas compressors if such a situation is thus detected; and Station Control Systems, which provide control and monitoring of the process gas flow between upstream and downstream stations.

The Safety Integrity Level required for each function in the plant control, shut down and control systems was assessed, designed and implemented in accordance with SIL 2, IEC 61508 and 61511 principles.
