A Mark VIe control system retrofit for either heavy-duty gas or steam turbines improves performance, operability and availability for your operations. Its flexible design offers either a simplex, dual or triple redundant configuration to meet your needs. Benefits include:
- Ease of operation through advanced software tools and networks
- Less maintenance and mean-time-to-repair with modern diagnostic tools and the ability to integrate third party monitoring and control systems into the turbine control
- Improved lifecycle support with access to current upgrade/maintenance programs for software, hardware and spare parts
- Reduced project cost and implementation time
- Common HMI, training, testing and parts support
- Ensures system availability and operability with a reliable startup to avoid unnecessary trips
- Increases operator understanding of turbine operation, awareness of pending faults, and helps promote regular maintenance checks for key accessory systems
- Increased operator awareness of a turbine’s state and its progress to full-speed-no-load
- Enhanced troubleshooting ability of failed starts
- Improves the overall start-up process to ensure on-time, reliable plant start-up capability
The Mark VIe Turbine Control System with SIL-capable protection is designed for peace of mind, meeting the functional safety requirements of IEC 61508 and 61511. It integrates the SIL-certified robustness of the Mark VIeS platform with the proven control technology of the Mark VIe for gas turbines, providing reliable protection while minimizing installation and operational costs.
- SIL 3 capable
- Option to complete IEC 61511 requirements
- Optimizes availability
- No single point of failure
