Hinkley control contract for Capula
07 Jun 2011
We’re pleased to announce EDF Energy have engaged Capula to deliver a control system at their Hinkley Point B power station in Somerset and are delighted to have won this contract to continue our support for the nuclear generation.
The nuclear power station, an Advanced Gas-cooled Reactor (AGR), features a Condensate & Polishing Plant (CPP) that cleans and maintains feed water quality for the boilers by removing contaminates built up over time.
Capula’s control solution, based on Rockwell Automation’s CompactLogix and Parker Hanifin/CTC HPX15T Touch screen HMIs, will replace the now-obsolete Texas 5Ti sequencer, providing an efficient, robust and modern system to support Hinkley Point B’s business operations moving forward.
“Capula was chosen because of our fine track record in delivery alongside our experience in working on licensed nuclear sites,” said Capula’s Business Development Director Simon Coombs, “We’ve got an excellent relationship with EDF Energy and are pleased to have won this contract to continue this further.”
