Increase Safety and Efficiency through Control Centres

Increase safety and efficiency through control centres

Control centres are responsible for the management and gathering of essential information, with the aim of increasing security and operating power generation plants with the utmost efficiency. The operators are able to control all the important plant devices from this space and are also able to deal with any unexpected event that may arise. They also carry out regular surveillance and maintenance tasks needed to prevent any recurring problems.

In order to be able to carry out their tasks, it is essential for the control centre operators to be able to receive signals from all the equipment and systems within the power plant. This allows relative information from the equipment located around the plant to be received and resolved in one place.

How do we develop control centres at Tecnatom?

Tecnatom has over 30 years of experience in the engineering sector. This enables us to develop unique solutions adapted to the specific needs of each client, which have been proven to give great results in other demanding industries such as the nuclear energy sector.

Designing a control centre for a fossil fuel plant is a highly complex project which requires multi-disciplinary knowledge and an enormous skillset. This means essential engineering research needs to be conducted on Human Factors Engineering (HFE), as well as taking into consideration mechanical and electric aspects, installation, efficiency testing, and the correct supply. Our services also include operations such as element verification and validation, the upgrade of instruments and the increase of cybersecurity.

During the last three decades Tecnatom has designed over 25 international standard control centres, including 20 key control centres for the nuclear sector, in addition to 80 Human Factors Engineering, instrumentation and control projects. The prestige we have acquired over this time has allowed Tecnatom to gain access to specialist forums and teams from the IAEA, NRC and EPRI, demonstrating that our own technology meets the safety standards demanded by today’s market.

How do we add value to control centres?

We are currently experiencing a significant shift in instrumentation, from analogue models to new digital operation systems. These include screens which gather information and other elements for the large-scale facilitation of control centre monitoring. Tecnatom is a leader in technological transformation via the integration of these procedures into new control centres as well as the updating of existing control centres.

As a result of our extensive international experience, we are able to supply advanced, digital control centres which are designed to minimise human error and increase the safety and efficiency of all types of energy plants.
