Greenfield combined-cycle power plant automated
Metso has signed an agreement with AGE Enerji to automate their Denizli, Turkey plant. They are scheduled to start up by the end of 2012.
Metso has signed an agreement with AGE Enerji Yatırımları A.Ş, one of Turkey’s major energy companies, to automate a greenfield combined-cycle power plant in Denizli, Turkey. The 205.5 MW greenfield power plant fueled by natural gas is scheduled to start up by the end of 2012.
Metso’s delivery scope consists of a high-tech Metso DNA automation system with which the power plant will be controlled. All communication, controllers and I/O modules are redundant to ensure high system availability. The user interface supports intuitive navigation and provides a practically unlimited number of scalable process graphics with pop-up windows, loop-specific detailed operation windows and dynamic loop-specific interlock windows. The system interface is bilingual – Turkish and English. Metso DNA supports a multi-lingual user interface in which any pre-defined language can be selected from the pull-down menu by the operator.
The delivery also includes an integrated Metso DNA information management system featuring advanced web-based solutions. The delivery will take place at the beginning of August.
With the issue of the Electricity Market Law in Turkey, the private sector has been encouraged to make new investments in the energy sector. After completion of the new plant in Denizli, the company’s total electricity production capacity will amount to 295 MW in 2013. AGE Enerji’ s future target in production is to reach 700 MW by 2016.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
