"We are very pleased that EnBW recommended us for this award and that this has once again underscored our competence in the installation of intelligent, cost-efficient I&C solutions to the satisfaction of our customers," said Karlheinz Springer, CEO of the Business Unit Instrumentation, Controls & Electrical within Siemens Energy, on the occasion of the award ceremony at the VGB Congress in Stuttgart, Germany. VGB PowerTech e.V. is the European trade association for power and heat generation with headquarters in Essen.
The Web-based I&C system SPPA-T3000 was deployed as a pilot project at RDK 7 in Karlsruhe in late 2005. Thanks to the system's outstanding performance a complete I&C changeout was performed at unit 1 in Altbach/Deizisau in August 2006 and in a further step at RDK 7 in Karlsruhe in June 2007. The two projects were completed on schedule. The decisive factors in favor of the Siemens solution were the system’s high level of flexibility, its straightforward engineering and the standardized user interface for all integrated systems. Furthermore, SPPA-T3000 can be readily extended and also requires less space compared to the original configuration.
From the very outset the new I&C system SPPA-T3000 showed convincing performance with the high availability of its hardware components and a sophisticated, integrated software solution. "These two projects are exemplary in the field of power plant automation," said Siegfried Kroll, power plant manager at Altbach/Deizisau operated by EnBW Kraftwerke AG. "The hitch-free project execution and the optimum timing of the two I&C installations are very praiseworthy. In both projects the units will be fully up and running within a very short space of time," added Frank-Peter Kirschning, power plant manager at Rheinhafen steam power plant in Karlsruhe.
Siemens I&C systems are deployed worldwide: The excellent response has now been recognized in Germany with the VGB Quality Award presented by the European trade association VGB. Since it was launched in 2005, SPPA-T3000 has been sold more than 430 times worldwide for all types of power plants. Some 80 systems are in the meantime up and running around the globe.The Siemens Energy Sector is the world's leading supplier of a complete spectrum of products, services and solutions for the generation, transmission and distribution of power and for the extraction, conversion and transport of oil and gas. In fiscal 2007 (ended September 30, based on IFRS), the Energy Sector had revenues of approximately EUR20.3 billion and received new orders totaling around EUR28.5 billion and posted a profit of EUR1.8 billion The Energy Sector had a work force of 73,500 at the beginning of fiscal 2008.

„Mehr sehen, als das Auge erlaubt“, das ist ein Anspruch, dem die Hyperspektrale Bildgebung (HSI) gerecht wird. Die neue Kameratechnologie ermöglicht, Licht nicht nur ortsaufgelöst, sondern simultan auch spektral aufgelöst aufzuzeichnen. Das bedeutet, dass zur Informationsgewinnung nicht nur herkömmlich drei spektrale Bänder (RGB), sondern bis zu eintausend genutzt werden.
Das Fraunhofer IWS Dresden entwickelt eine integrierte HSI-Lösung, die das Potenzial der HSI-Technologie in zuverlässige Hard- und Software überführt und für...
An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.
Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...
Hitzewellen in der Arktis, längere Vegetationsperioden in Europa, schwere Überschwemmungen in Westafrika – mit Hilfe des deutsch-französischen Satelliten MERLIN wollen Wissenschaftler ab 2021 die Emissionen des Treibhausgases Methan auf der Erde erforschen. Möglich macht das ein neues robustes Lasersystem des Fraunhofer-Instituts für Lasertechnologie ILT in Aachen, das eine bisher unerreichte Messgenauigkeit erzielt.
Methan entsteht unter anderem bei Fäulnisprozessen. Es ist 25-mal wirksamer als das klimaschädliche Kohlendioxid, kommt in der Erdatmosphäre aber lange nicht...
Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.
Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...
Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.
As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...
