Bowarege is a rapidly deployable barge-mounted reverse osmosis desalination plant, owned and operated by International Barges Company for Water Desalination in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The electrical distribution and automation system was completely damaged due to a raging fire aboard the barge and we won the project to redesign, rebuild, and supply the electrical switchgear and intelligent motor control centre consisting of 37 VFDs, out of which 12 were 500 kW each, 5 were 315 kW each, 4 were 280 kW each, 10 were 30 kW each, 2 were 22 kW each, 2 were 18.5 kW each, 2 were 5.5 kW each. In addition, it included two 90 kW soft starters. It also included a number of auxiliary starters, power distribution and automation system. Bowerage 2 is our first step towards a Plant Automation system. Total installed capacity was 15 MW. The plant was completely automated using the latest SIPLUS PLC hardware integrating 10,976 I/O terminations.
