IPS to supply control technology to world’s first H2 power plant

By Gerald Ondrey |

Invensys Process Systems (IPS; Plano, Tex.; www.invensys.com), a global technology, software and consulting firm, today announced that it has been selected by Enel to supply control and automation technology for the world’s first hydrogen-fuelled power plant, to be constructed in Fusina, near Venice in the Veneto region of Italy. Enel is Italy’s largest power company with more than 50 million power and gas customers and a presence in 21 countries. The new facility, which places Enel and Italy at the forefront of technological innovation for environmentally compatible energy development, is part of the Environment and Innovation Project, which envisages investments of 7.4-billion euros by 2012. The 40-million euro plant will be built next to Enel’s existing coal-fired power station in Fusina and is being supported with 4-million euros from the local Veneto region, which is keen to establish a dedicated “hydrogen district” in the area. IPS fought off stiff competition from within the power market to land this prestigious contract. As part of the deal, the company will supply I/A Series automation and Triconex triple modular redundant safety controllers, as well as instrumentation and other site services. In…
