Leistungstests bei Sulzer (Deutschland) Pumpen GmbH in Bruchsal, Deutschland

Vom 18. – 20.11.2015 fanden Leistungstests des 4.1MW SETCON® bei der Firma Sulzer (Deutschland) Pumpen GmbH in Bruchsal statt. Ähnlich den Tests bei Elin Motoren GmbH in Weiz wurde hier der komplette Antriebsstrang inklusive Kesselspeisepumpe getestet.

Auch hier bestätigte sich die hervorragende Leistungsfähigkeit, Effizienz und Zuverlässigkeit des elektro-mechanischen Differentialsystems. Alle Anforderungen wurden zur vollsten Zufriedenheit des Kunden PCK Raffinerie GmbH erfüllt und die professionelle Zusammenarbeit zwischen den involvierten Firmen bestätigt.

Auch lokalen und internationalen Kunden aus den Branchen Energie, Industrie und Öl und Gas war es die Tage möglich sich einen Eindruck über die Vorteile des SETCON® zu verschaffen.  An dieser gut besuchten Kundenvorstellung waren alle Anwesenden von den Vorteilen überzeugt und der Meinung, dass das SETCON® eine ideale Lösung ist, um effizient und zuverlässig zu regeln.

„Wind Generators as Role Models“

Dirk Küllmey, Klaus Löffler 04.11.2015…SET ist seit mehr als 20 Jahren aktiv im Bereich Windkraft und hat Getriebe für die Regelung von Windgeneratoren entwickelt, die den erzeugten Strom bei wechselnden Windlasten konstant bei 50 Hz halten. Das innovative Getriebekonzept hat SET nun zusammen mit Sulzer auf Pumpen angewendet. [Sulzer Technical Review]

The 2nd China International Compressor, Blower and Fan Academic Conference

On the 15th of September 2015 SET was part of the 2nd China International Compressor, Blower and Fan Academic Conference in Chengdu in China. At this conference the latest news related to compressor, fan and blower technology were reported. Speakers of considerable companies and well-known universities were presenting their research results and achievements providing an outlook to the future. Mr. Maximilian Hehenberger from SET was presenting his paper „Assessment of an electro-mechanical differential system providing variable speed to industrial applications“ at the conference followed by great interest of the audience. SET´s innovative drive train technology was very well accepted and received an excellent feedback from the participants.

4.1MW SETCON® Performance Tests at Elin Motoren GmbH

In the end of August the performance tests of the 4.1MW SETCON® for a boiler feed pump at the PCK refinery in Schwedt (Germany) were executed at ELIN Motoren GmbH in Weiz (Austria).

Due to the excellent cooperation with Sulzer Pumpen (Deutschland) GmbH and the intensive preparations of SET GmbH the SETCON® has shown an excellent performance and we could endorse in an impressive way our maxim “first time right”. All tests were performed without any failure and complete satisfaction of customers and suppliers. The evaluated test results have shown our customer, that the SETCON® is more than just a promise regarding reliability and efficiency. Because of the excellent performance further projects are planned together with Sulzer Pumpen (Deutschland) GmbH.


Dr. Andreas Basteck joins the SET team

Since the second quarter of 2015, Dr. Andreas Basteck has been supporting the SET team as a consultant. Dr. Basteck has wide professional experience in various business segments. Among others, he was technical director for variable-speed drives at Voith Turbo GmbH before he took over management of Voith Turbo Wind GmbH (CEO). Recently managing director at Zollern GmbH & Co. KG, he was responsible for drive train technologies.

Dr. Basteck’s main task at SET GmbH will be to further improve the high standards of SET’s gearbox design and drive train technologies and promote business development with the focus on industrial applications.

Building on their joint expertise, SET GmbH and Dr. Basteck are expecting to develop state-of-the-art, forward-looking electro-mechanical differential gears and to establish this technology extensively.

DSgear-set® for a 4.1MW boiler-feed pump at PCK site in Schwedt (Germany)

SET’s electro-mechanical differential gear points the way ahead for the entire wind sector. In the interim this technology is also meeting with great interest in industry.

In the 4th quarter of 2014 Sulzer Pumps GmbH awarded SET GmbH a contract to install its electro-mechanical differential gear system (DSgear-set®) at the PCK refinery in Schwedt (Germany). By the 2nd quarter of 2015 the DSgear-set® will replace the existing direct drive system in order to meet future challenges in terms of sustainability and life cycle costs (LCC). SET’s electro-mechanical differential gear emerged as the best technology ahead of the competition in view of its speed variability range, efficiency, and robustness.

The DSgear-set® has to provide a rated power of 4,080 kW for a boiler feed-water pump, which is essential for the refinery processes at the site. In this flagship project the operating companies expect the DSgear-set® to ensure high cost savings, maximum reliability and Efficiency.Due to the excellent cooperation between the companies involved, follow-up projects are planned.


Successful appearance at WindEnergy Hamburg

From 26-28 Sep SET was at Hamburg Exhibition! The appearance of SET together with AVL was a great success and was very well received by the visitors. Talking to costumer our team consisting of Peter Prebio, Maximilian Hehenberger and Markus Waldner was able to emphasize the benefits of DSgen-set® and engineering expertise of SET (together with AVL).

Above all, the introduction of the new product “torque ramp-down unit” has found a very positive response from all those who operate or offer DFIG equipment. This new technology, which can be used as an inexpensive and highly efficient load shedding device, led to some new and interesting business contacts.

We wish to thank all our visitors for their interest and all partners for the excellent collaboration, looking forward to the next presentations in 2015.
