Enhancing the performance of power plant turbines

Many old turbine control and protection systems are no longer up to the task of meeting today's requirements for cost-effective operation of the power plant turbo-sets. The result is decreasing availability and deteriorating operational reliability. SPPA-R3000 Turbine Controls is the perfect solution to increase the level of availability and to enhance operational reliability to the next level. It offers smooth migration concepts for Siemens Energy units as well as third party turbines.


SPPA-R3000 Turbine Controls provide comprehensive automation functions, electrical solutions, process engineering, and a modern state of the art I&C system fully-integrated  into the unit control. Once installed, the SPPA-R3000 turbine control master program ensures fully automatic turbine control and operation for all operating modes.


Our service portfolio comprises everything from feasibility studies to the realization of any kind of controls, protection, and governor functionalities for gas turbines as well as steam turbines. Of course, this also includes fail-safe protection with SIL3 certification, installation/commissioning, and complete documentation.

The benefits of our SPPA-R3000 Turbine Controls solution:

  • Increased availability and lifetime
  • Increased operational flexibility
  • Increased reliability
  • Reduced maintenance costs
  • Increased revenue.

SPPA-R3000 Turbine Controls is based on Omnivise T3000, the benchmark in control systems. 

Turbine control modernization

Comprehensive turbine automation and protection upgrade with integrated solutions for hydraulics

Trips of the unit are costly and decrease the lifetime of the turbo-set. Modern 

turbine automation solutions can avoid unnecessary failures but often don’t offer interfaces between the I&C system and the hydraulics. Decide on SPPA-R3000 for your turbine modernization: the turbine automation solution SPPA-R3000 allows for seamless integration of the I&C interface to the hydraulics for all turbine types and from any vendor. 


The SPPA-R3000 hydraulics solution for turbine automation may include 2-out-of-3 (2oo3) turbine trip blocks that are designed to replace trip assemblies and mechanical protection circuits. Low pressure and high-pressure types are available.


The 2oo3 hydraulic voting of 3 electronic trip channels offers online test capability, from sensor to hydraulics, of all trip channels including the trip block. Thus after turbine modernization, the system is testable during operation via an incorporated test program. The result is highest safety and availability as well as increased reliability and reduced maintenance efforts.
