The Foxboro Co. and Siantek, it's representative in Taiwan, recently received a multimillion-dollar order from Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd., Japan, and CTCI Corp., Tawain's largest engineering contractor, to install its I/A Series control system at two refuse incinerator plants (Kaohsiung South and Ren-Wu) for the Environmental Protection Administration, Government of Taiwan, Republic of China. Foxboro's scope of supply includes the I/A Series control system, engineering services, panels, and field services. The I/A Series system will control burning of all refuse in Kaohsiung, Taiwan's second largest city. Electricity generated by refuse burning will be exported to the power supply grid of Taiwan Power, the national electric utility. Support of the local language was strictly requested by the customer for this project, and Foxboro reports that it won the order based largely on its "Asianzation" effort. The company was able to support Taiwan's Chinese language as a standard because the I/A Series can support multi-language environments.
