SPPA-T2000 Control System
Tested and proven power plant DCS – for two decades
SPPA-T2000 is a proven universal control system that has been deployed in power plants since 1994. Thanks to its flexible system structure, it has been installed in numerous different power plantsof every type and capacity. Through the use of standard hardware and software, the Siemens expertise in process engineering, and the concept of “continuous innovation,” SPPA-T2000 had become the world’s leading control system in just a few years.
Several years ago, SPPA-T3000 succeeded SPPA-T2000 as the next-generation control technology for conventional power plants; at the same time, development of the SPPA-T2000 control system continued over a long period of time up until the year 2010. Even after 2010, we offer continuous product maintenance and we support all SPPA-T2000 systems throughout their entire lifetime.
Our primary objective is to ensure maximum availability of control systems even beyond the lifecycle of an individual system or individual components, thereby safeguarding the investments of our customers over the long term.
Continuous development – automation system:
The automation technology of SPPA-T2000 was originally based on the SIMATIC S5 hardware component, which will be discontinued in 2015. That’s why the current SIMATIC S7 industry standard is being supported as of SPPA-T2000 Release 8: Using Release 8, the automation systems can be migrated to the current SIMATIC S7 automation platform without the need to make changes to the engineering.
To extend the lifetime even further, we offer numerous services aimed at long-term support, extending the service life, and for continuous system maintenance. In the download area you can learn more about what we offer for existing SPPA-T2000 control systems in conventional plants.
Investment security – systematic, long-term migration strategies:
Since 2009 it has been possible to replace the OM650 operator control and monitoring system (HMI) of SPPA-T2000 with the HMI of the current SPPA-T3000 control system. The objective of this HMI migration is always to retain as many components of the existing DCS installation as possible as well as the HMI engineering data and archive data – all of which protects the existing investments.
This applies not only to the HMI migration but also to the full migration to SPPA-T3000: You will realize the benefits of the current DCS generation and preserve essential assets such as control cabinets, cabling, I/O modules, and – even more crucial – the individual engineering of your SPPA-T2000 with the proven system configurations and settings.
