Hymatek has entered into a new contract for delivery of turbine governors and oil pressure systems. This time we have signed an agreement with Tussa Energi AS for deliveries to both units in Tussa power plant.
The delivery will take place in the first quarter of 2018 with commissioning in the second quarter of the same year. Hymatek’s delivery consists of:
- Turbine governor Hydrotrol 20P with Connexi platform.
- Speed monitoring TUVA 20 with Connexi platform.
- Oil pressure system GOPS 600 with Connexi platform on pump control.
This is the first new Hymatek contract which is based on the new Connexi platform, and the first delivery we have with the newly developed Connexi based pump control. Hymatek is very enthusiastic about how Tussa wants new technology in its power plants and are looking forward to cooperate on this project.
PS: This is not the first Hydrotrol 20 that is being delivered. The first Hydrotrol 20F with Connexi platform was commissioned in August 2017 as a variation order on existing contract. Read more about it in this link

Hymatek has delivered and commissioned a valve control on the Connexi platform. This is another milestone in the development of Connexi.
The scope of the project was the replacement of an existing PLS for controlling the main inlet valve. Connexi was therefore built into existing cabinet with the same interface to the control system and the main inlet valve. A human machine interface was installed on site according to the customer’s own request. The display enables easier troubleshooting for operating personnel because of the clear picture of the opening and closing sequence
Hymatek have received good feedback on the product and is working on further development. The use of the display for safe securing of the main inlet valve is one of the development task that is ongoing. In addition, the use of Connexi will enable increased monitoring and trending of the main inlet valve system.
Connexi valve control can be delivered with all of our valve controls. Valve Control
Our next generation hydro turbine governor Hydrotrol 20 is now in commercial operation on a Francis unit. This marks an important milestone in the development of the Connexi™ platform.
