The test validates and verifies the Distributed Control System (DCS) installed by Alstom, certifying that it is ready for First Fire and Synchronisation .

The SIT underlines that Alstomís Distributed Control System, which plays a key role in the safe and reliable operation of the plant, is performing according to requirements and is now ready for commissioning of the new 6x800MW plant first unit (Unit 6) near Lephalale in the Limpopo province.

The Site Integration Test involves more than 100 tests and inspections and is carried out once the system has been installed on site. It involves 70,000 hardwired inputs/outputs and was completed between 28 July and 5 September 2014. These included the connection of the Control Room workstation to the local area network (LAN) and central storage and control of the system software as well as the demonstration of the DCS ability to carry out fault finding. It also comprised the database access by an Eskom personal computer with Microsoft-based applications, the verification of redundancies in the DCS systems and subsystems and the verification of system interfaces (e.g. interfaces with the Auxiliary Boiler, the Turbine Control and Protection System, the Boiler Protection System, etc.).

ďThe success of the tests was a multinational team effortĒ, says Alstom Project Director Rafael Alvarez. ďWe drew on expertise from Alstom employees around the world to solve challenges and to deliver for our customerĒ.

The teams on site for the test involved personnel from South Africa, France, Philippines, India, UK, Poland, Egypt, Ukraine and Malaysia.

The success is testament to Alstomís expertise in Control and Instrumentation technology, which was recently proven by milestones reached at two major Alstom power plants: the Manjung power plant in Malaysia and the äoötanj Iignite steam power plant in Slovenia.1

Alstomís scope at Medupi consists in the supply, installing and commissioning of the Turbine Island and the plant control system.
