CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - The United States Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has awarded Raytheon multiple contracts to research and develop technologies that will detect and respond to cyber attacks on the U.S. power grid infrastructure. The contracts, which total $9 million, were awarded under DARPA's Rapid Attack Detection, Isolation and Characterization Systems program.

"During the last two decades, industrial control systems have evolved so that most are now connected to the Internet, making them vulnerable to cyber attack," said Jason Redi, vice president for the Raytheon BBN Technologies Networking and Communications unit. "A significant power disruption would have profound economic and human costs in the U.S, so our goals are to prevent attacks and to reduce the time required to restore power after an attack."

Raytheon BBN will create technologies to enhance situational awareness by providing early warning of an impending attack and detecting adversary spoofing of power grid data collection and communication. These technologies will also maintain situational awareness in the immediate aftermath of an attack.

The company will also examine methods to maintain secure emergency communication networks in the aftermath of an attack. Raytheon BBN's approach seeks to isolate affected organizations from the Internet and establish a secure emergency network to coordinate power restoration without depending on external networks.

Raytheon BBN Technologies is a wholly owned subsidiary of Raytheon Company.

ERLANGEN, Germany - Siemens has signed an agreement with Sudan's state-run energy provider Sudanese Thermal Power Generating Company (STPGC) to supply five SGT5-2000E gas turbines. These machines will deliver a combined electrical generating capacity of some 850 megawatts for the Sudanese national grid. All five power plant units are scheduled to already commence commercial operation at the end of 2017.

In addition to the five E-class gas turbines, Siemens' scope of supply also comprises five associated SGen5-100A generators as well as Siemens' SPPA-T3000 control systems. Three of the machines are destined for Garri Power Station in the North of the Sudanese Capital Khartoum, while the remaining two units will generate electric power further east in Port Sudan on the country's Red Sea coast. All five of these turbine-generator sets will be initially commissioned as simple-cycle gas-turbine power plant units. However, later add-on of steam turbines is planned to expand the units to combined cycle configurations.

All five gas turbines are already nearing ex-works shipment. Two of the machines were manufactured at Siemens' Gas Turbine Manufacturing Plant in Berlin, and manufacture of the other three is being completed in Saint Petersburg, Russia. The five generators will be delivered from Erfurt, Germany, to Republic of the Sudan. Siemens' E-class gas turbines can fire not only natural gas but also heavy fuel oil and light diesel oil. This high fuel flexibility along with the short delivery lead time proved to be an important selection criterion for the customer in opting for Siemens.

Republic of the Sudan has substantial market potential for power plant components and solutions. The country is planning to invest extensively in its energy infrastructure in the coming years in order to be able to meet the rising demand for electricity.
