TTS’ Balance of Plant (BOP) control system solution is a programmable plant control system for new applications or as a replacement for an existing plant controller such as a distributed control system (DCS). Our BOP control system puts the controller, I/O platforms and communications on a common bus sharing all the plant’s parameters. Typical systems include:
Clients see our work as a pragmatic approach to operational excellence - lowering operational risk. The full suite of benefits includes:
To meet the forecasted demand for between 27,000 to 45,000 miles of transmission and distribution pipelines that will be added by 2035, new-build infrastructure will need to be on a much faster development track.
TTS Midstream combines our controls experience on all OEM control systems and operating profiles with our gas turbine operations and rotating equipment expertise to deliver an open architecture / non-proprietary solution. Clients lower their overall plant operating costs, increased flexibility and availability while reducing risk.
The planned facilities include: 168 miles of intrastate pipeline, a compressor station located near Agua Dulce, TX with a total of 168,980 HP and a compressor station located near Brownsville, TX with a total horsepower of 96,560 HP. That’s over a quarter million HP that needs to be managed and controlled. TTS was awarded the building and commissioning of the pipeline station control panels (SCP) and Emergency Shutdown Panels (ESD) for both facilities.Read More
Reacting to the downward pressure on CAPX, many operators will want to retrofit and upgrade existing pipelines. Using original operator interfaces running on outdated, discontinued equipment and unsupported operating systems dramatically reduces reliability and increases maintenance costs.
NERC cyber security compliance is also not possible with older operating systems because security updates are no longer supported.
