Yokogawa Electric Corporation, announced that its subsidiary, Yokogawa Middle East & Africa, has received an order from the state-owned Egyptian Natural Gas Company (GASCO), to supply a gas pipeline management and control system, Egypt Oil & Gas reports.
Yokogawa’s systems are set to be completely delivered by September 2019.
The company is currently contributing in a project to change the SCADA and management systems of the country’s two central grid control centers, which control and manage the gas flow through a 7,000 km network of gas trunklines.
Yokogawa received the order following GASCO’s evaluation of Yokogawa Enterprise Pipeline Management Solution (EPMS)’s device scheduler among other operation management applications, which confirm natural gas efficient transportation, in addition to Yokogawa’s FAST/TOOLS supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system’s high reliability, which is based on the recent industrial standards and might be configured for quadruple redundancy, according to Business Wire.
“We are committed to making full use of our rich experience in this field to bring this essential infrastructure project to a successful conclusion,” said Hideki Matsubayashi, Yokogawa Vice President for the Middle East, Africa, and India.
