Instrumentation and Control

Safety and productivity are contingent on pinpoint accuracy and precise measurement. CHA Canada designs instrumentation and control systems that accurately capture pertinent data, providing a full scope of engineering services for power plant, utility, industrial, and institutional projects. We have upgraded plant control systems and installed new systems for clients such as Cornell University, Union Gas Power, Henderson Hospital, Northland Power, TransCanada Power, Kimberly-Clark, and Potter Station Power.

Our instrumentation and control design is coordinated closely with the mechanical and electrical engineering work throughout the project lifecycle to ensure all defined control and monitoring requirements are implemented successfully. We also carefully integrate plant controls with vendor supplied control systems, including boiler controls, burner management systems, gas and steam turbine generator controls, and auxiliary equipment PLCs.

Our planning, specification, selection, and engineering expertise includes:
  • Field Instrumentation
  • Plant Distributed Control Systems (DCS)
  • PLC-based Plant Control Systems (PCS)
  • Data Acquisition Systems
  • SCADA Systems
  • Load Management Systems
