AUMA Partnership Supports Thermal Power Supply

A partnership between AUMA and Kirloskar (KBL) has amalgamated actuator and valve technology to support an Indian thermal power plant in Salaya, Gujarat.

The automation solution, supplied to Essar Power Gujarat Ltd, has been produced to control the common header of circulating water pumps for Salaya 1.

Demonstrating an ability to provide tailored systems, the bespoke design for the 2x600MW plant combines AUMA's electric multi-turn actuator, integral actuator controls and worm gearbox with a 3.6m Butterfly Valve from KBL.

AUMA's modular actuator design supports the need for flexible operation at the thermal power plant and a requirement for durability was addressed with KBL's ebonite lined Butterfly Valve.

With over 40 years providing actuation systems for the power industry, AUMA has an established track record supporting electricity generation. Previous installations include actuators supplied to units six and seven of the Kota Super Thermal Power Station, Rajasthan's first major coal-fired power plant.

The Salaya scheme confirms AUMA's capability supporting large scale valve technology.
