Chris Groenenberg, Project Engineer E&I – De Jong Combustion
”My work as Project Engineer E&I is related to the safety of the De Jong Combustion burner installations. Depending on the final location of the project, the safety standards that must be met are different. In order to achieve this safety of the burner installation, a Burner Management System (BMS) is used. This includes a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC), which continuously monitors the process conditions of the burner. As soon as one of the process conditions is outside the safe operating range of the PLC, the program will intervene and turn off the entire burner installation, so to a safe situation. One of my tasks is to write the PLC program.
Because not every customer is working with the same brand of PLC, I regularly use other programming languages. On the one hand it is difficult to control these different programming languages, but on the other hand I have varied and challenging work. I like this variety a lot.”
