Yokogawa Wins Order to Provide Control System and Field Instruments for Gas-fired Power Plant in Turkmenistan
Yokogawa Electric Corporation (TOKYO:6841) announces that its subsidiary Yokogawa Turkey Industrial Automation Solutions A.S. (Yokogawa Turkey) has won an order to provide a control system and field instruments for the Zerger gas-fired power plant in Turkmenistan. The order was received from Renaissance Heavy Industries, a major construction company in Turkey that is involved in the construction of this plant for Turkmenenergo, a state-owned power utility in Turkmenistan. This is Yokogawa’s first control systems order for a power plant in this country.
Turkmenistan is a resource rich country with the world’s fourth-largest natural gas reserves*1. The country continues to experience steady economic growth thanks to its exports of natural gas and production of cotton and other agricultural products. To aid in the reconstruction of the neighboring country of Afghanistan, the Turkmen government concluded an agreement based on which it will supply electricity to that country for a ten-year period, beginning in 2018. The main source of this electricity will be the Zerger power plant, which generates power using locally-sourced natural gas. Located in the Chardzhev district of Lebap Province, approximately 600 km northeast of Ashgabat, the country’s capital, this is a simple cycle gas turbine power plant that will have three gas turbines with a combined capacity of approximately 400 MW. Sumitomo Corporation is the prime engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor for this project, and the plant’s turbines and generators are being supplied by Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS).
To monitor and control the plant’s three gas turbines and auxiliary facilities, Yokogawa will provide the CENTUMTM VP integrated production control system, DPharp EJATM series differential pressure and pressure transmitters, and YTA610 temperature transmitters*2. Yokogawa Turkey will be in charge of providing engineering and support services for the installation and commissioning of this system, and will complete work on this project by September of this year. To provide support services, Yokogawa opened a sales and after-sales office in Turkmenistan in August 2015.
One of the Sustainable Development Goals for the year 2030 that were adopted at the UN Sustainable Development Summit is to ensure the provision of affordable and clean energy. Natural gas is an energy source whose combustion emits less CO2 than oil or coal, and as such is regarded as an important means for achieving a low carbon society. Taking advantage of its strong expertise and excellent track record in natural gas related plant construction projects, Yokogawa is helping to ensure the stable supply of power in markets all over the world, including Central Asia.

Kalray: Information About Covid-193.4.2020 00:05:00 EEST | Press release
Kalray (Paris:ALKAL) (Euronext Growth Paris : ALKAL), a pioneer in processors for new intelligent systems, is sharing the status on its activity and the continuation of its activity following the various health measures taken by the French government. The impact of Covid-19 epidemic on Kalray’s research and development activity, which is not too dependent on its suppliers, is expected to be limited and Kalray is hopeful it will be able to stick to its development roadmap. The development teams are fully operational thanks to telework, which was put in place as soon as the containment was announced in France on Monday March 16. The company does not use technical unemployment to date. However, the global health situation related to the Covid-19 epidemic and the containment measures implemented in many countries are likely to slow down business cycles, which could delay the deployment of some of company’s projects. At this stage, Kalray is currently assessing all the impacts of this crisi
