KNOXVILLE, TENN - S.C. Complexul Energetic Rovinari has selected Emerson Process Management to supply its CSI 6500 Machinery Health Monitor for continuous protection and prediction monitoring of critical machinery at the Rovinari Power Plant in Romania. The 1320MW plant is the second-largest power generating facility in the country.

The CSI 6500 fully complies with the requirements for API 670 (American Petroleum Institute) protection, the globally-accepted definition of industry best practices for turbomachinery protection. Sensors connected to the CSI 6500 will gather vibration data from the steam turbine and feed water pump for deeper analysis with Emerson’s AMS Suite predictive maintenance software, enabling maintenance personnel to predict equipment issues to better maintain and protect the machinery.

The CSI 6500 will also be integrated with Emerson¹s Ovation expert control system, which will provide monitoring and control of the boiler, balance-of-plant processes, and management of the plant¹s power output.In addition to the CSI 6500, AMS Suite communicates online with new smart HART® field devices for configuration and calibration as well as ongoing diagnosis and troubleshooting.

The CSI 6500 will integrate seamlessly with the Ovation control system to provide our maintenance and operations teams with real-time machinery health feedback, said Bratuianu Preda, I&C chief engineer for the Rovinari plant. By detecting changes in machinery health, we can effectively plan our maintenance program ­ reducing downtime and increasing our operating efficiency.

“Emerson’s asset management technologies are being implemented widely as part of the modernization initiatives in many power plants, said Stuart Harris, vice president and general manager of Emerson’s Asset Optimization business. These solutions uniquely deliver the required protection of critical equipment while also providing advanced prediction capabilities to ensure plant availability.

The CSI 6500 easily connects to the Ovation expert control system in three simple steps that take less than ten minutes. This integration directly supports power generators drive for improved availability and performance by delivering machinery health feedback to operators.
