European trade association VGB PowerTech awards Siemens the VGB Quality Award 2008

19.09.2008
Siemens Energy has received the VGB Quality Award 2008 for replacement of the instrumentation & control systems at two power plants operated by EnBW AG. At the Rheinhafen steam power plant (RDK) in Karlsruhe and the combined heat and power plant (CHP) in Altbach/Deizisau Siemens has installed advanced I&C systems to fully replace the existing equipment.

"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.

Im Focus: Hauchdünne magnetische Materialien für zukünftige Quantentechnologien entwickelt

Zweidimensionale magnetische Strukturen gelten als vielversprechendes Material für neuartige Datenspeicher, da sich die magnetischen Eigenschaften einzelner Molekülen untersuchen und verändern lassen. Forscher haben nun erstmals einen hauchdünnen Ferrimagneten hergestellt, bei dem sich Moleküle mit verschiedenen magnetischen Zentren auf einer Goldfläche selbst zu einem Schachbrettmuster anordnen. Dies berichten Wissenschaftler des Swiss Nanoscience Institutes der Universität Basel und des Paul Scherrer Institutes in der Wissenschaftszeitschrift «Nature Communications».

Ferrimagneten besitzen zwei magnetische Zentren, deren Magnetismus verschieden stark ist und in entgegengesetzte Richtungen zeigt. Zweidimensionale, quasi...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
