Power Systems

In the context of digitization, a strategic adaptation of asset management offers a high potential for economic and technical optimization.

Asset Management

Examples of optimization areas for plant management:

  • Improvement of important technical factors (e.g. availability, dynamics, operating point) by coupling of several various energy sources, storages and/or consumer assets
  • Monitoring and control of maintenance and repair projects
  • Analysis and elimination of errors through statistical evaluation of the technical availability of the systems
  • Visualization of all assets and their status (e.g. maintenance and test dates) at a glance – Maintenance Engineering

Communication & Process Control Technology

An important component of complex production plants is their automation, control, operation and monitoring.

Within the scope of projects we are accompanying our customers from the process engineering up to the implemented system. This includes the formulation of the tasks of the process engineering, the conversion into manufacturer-neutral function plans as well as the testing of the functions of the control technology supplier after programming.

A further challenge is the replacement of existing process control systems. We analyse the existing system, work out strategies for the exchange of the system, evaluate risks and opportunities, create schedules depending on relevant operational issues, such as revision periods and availability.

This knowledge ultimately leads to manufacturer-neutral inquiry specifications for potential control technology suppliers, which we prepare for our customers. We support the entire process of allocation, implementation and acceptance.

A process control system also includes a control station, which should be equipped in accordance with current health and safety legislation. For the modernization of these control stations, we support our customers holistically as overall planners.

This includes not only visualisation technology, but also architectural services, electrical engineering, lighting, heating/air conditioning/ventilation and all other systems located in a control centre. Together with the customer we find the right solutions.

Energy Management

The main objectives of energy management include:

  • Optimisation of load management, e.g. by changing the use of the plant and/or resources
  • The development of unused energy efficiency potentials
  • The reduction of energy costs
  • Reducing emissions of greenhouse gases and other harmful environmental effects
  • Optimization taking into account existing optimization potentials and possible optimization goals (such as contract compliance, consideration of network bottlenecks)

The introduction of an energy management system depends on the size of the company and its objectives. Selection for small and medium-sized enterprises:

  • DIN EN ISO 50001
  • EMAS System
  • Energy audit according to DIN EN 16247

Alternative system according to the Peak Balancing Efficiency System Ordinance (german – SpaEfV)
Selection for larger companies:

  • DIN EN ISO 50001
  • EMAS System
