Hyundai selects Experion PKS for KenGen
 
Honeywell announced that Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS) has been selected by Hyundai Engineering for Kenya Electricity Generating (KenGen) company’s two key geothermal plants in Olkaria, which will increase KenGen’s total electricity generating capacity by 25 per cent and help meet the country’s increasing demand for energy. 
 
Experion PKS will be used to integrate data from Olkaria’s different operating systems and share that information with the plant’s workforce, enabling them to make quicker, better- informed decisions. It will also be used to centralise control room strategies. The system will feature an integrated operator interface and incorporate physical security, emergency shutdown and fail-safe controls. Experion PKS will be implemented at KenGen’s Olkaria I and IV power plants – each with a capacity of 140 megawatts. The project is the largest geothermal project in Kenya.
 
“We are providing KenGen with a state-of-the-art control system that improves availability, reduces downtime and protects asset investment,” said Darius Adamczyk, President, Honeywell Process Solutions. “Together with Hyundai Engineering, we are developing a solution that generates continuous and reliable power to meet Kenya’s needs.”
