Flawless reception at festivals in 2020!
Flawless reception at festivals in 2020!
ICE TEAMS ENSURE GOOD RECEPTION AT MAJOR EVENTS
It goes without saying that nowadays, millions of photos and videos are sent or even streamed live at every major event. The ICE teams at Kremsmüller have been providing excellent reception at festivals, sporting events and concerts for many years now. Often Kremsmüller is out and about for mobile phone companies weeks before an event in order to set up the necessary infrastructure. Usually high radio towers have to be erected specifically for the event and air bridges have to be established. In the video linked above you can see an example of the work on the FM4 Frequency Festival in St. Pölten. As early as eight days before the start of the festival, work began on the installation of an 18-metre high transmission tower and high-capacity mobile radio antennas and equipment. The new festival season in 2020 will be no exception, and once again we will enjoy many splendid moments. Thanks to the work of Kremsmüller, we can capture these and share them with our loved ones.

District cooling powers the Vienna General Hospital (AKH) and Ö3 radio
District cooling powers the Vienna General Hospital (AKH) and Ö3 radio
The environmental balance is also outstanding.
The Electrical Engineering, Measurement and Control Technology Division (EMSR) of Kremsmüller Schwechat recently completed a project for Wien Energie in Spittelau. In addition to a large number of pipes and equipment, a new refrigeration system was installed, which is used for the district cooling supply. A connection to the district cooling system makes many smaller air-conditioning plants obsolete. Due to the elimination of fully fluorinated hydrocarbons, the environment is considerably relieved. In addition, the heat required comes from the exhaust heat of the waste incineration plants and the cooling water is taken from the Danube Canal. The water is cooled down from 17 to 7 degrees in the cycle. In addition to the Ö3 building, one of the main consumers of district cooling is the Vienna General Hospital. Here, the cold is obviously used in summer to cool the rooms, but it is also used in winter. Server rooms in the basement must be kept cool, patients can recover more effectively if the temperature is agreeable, and operating theatres also require cooling. All in all another very worthwhile and valuable project by Kremsmüller! You can find many more details and interesting information about it in the video linked above!

Greater Quality and Efficiency Thanks to New Control Station
Greater Quality and Efficiency Thanks to New Control Station
Kremsmüller fulfilled all customer requirements when converting the sheet rolling mill for Böhler Bleche
An exciting project for Kremsmüller was the reconstruction of the sheet metal rolling stand for Böhler Bleche in Hönichsberg near Mürzzuschlag, where titanium plates for the aviation industry are manufactured, among other products. Before the conversion, the sheet thickness had to be measured manually; now it is laser-based. The measurement data are evaluated in a newly installed control station. Our employees of the I & C division in Schwechat were involved in the construction of this control station. Kremsmüller undertook the planning of the entire electrical measurement and control systems, the complete distributor and console production, the installation of the electrical measurement and control systems and the commissioning. The only exception was the main drive. In this instance, we developed solutions specially tailored to the needs of our customer. In particular, the control panel with the screens was manufactured and installed precisely to the customer's specifications, and they were highly satisfied with the outcome Now that the rolling mill has been converted, quality and efficiency can be increased. It is also possible to produce even thicker sheets with still more special properties. Many large media such as Krone, ORF (Austrian Broadcasting Corporation) or the Industriemagazin have already reported on the project. Kremsmüller know-how thus helps companies to continue to be among the best in the world.

Mobile Communication Services for Austrian Companies
Mobile Communication Services for Austrian Companies
Red Bull and the Hofburg are among many customers relying on Kremsmüller expertise when it comes to mobile communications equipment.
There have been several articles about telecommunications technology, a division of instrumentation and control engineering. Projects in the construction of event antennas were, and still are, particularly exciting. Kremsmüller experts install mobile scaffold towers and equipment for nationwide mobile communication services at various major events. Frequency, the Danube Island Festival (Donauinselfest), Nova Rock and many other venues were equipped by Kremsmüller, making it possible for the tens of thousands of visitors to quickly transfer or share (LTE) live data such as photos and videos on Instagram, WhatsApp and the like. However, little has been reported about the equipping of companies with indoor mobile radio installations - an important and no less exciting area of telecommunications technology. On behalf of A1, Kremsmüller acquires, plans and constructs small repeater systems and complete outdoor and indoor mobile radio installations exclusively throughout Austria. In particular, in-house systems for companies are gaining ground. This is the only way to ensure optimum mobile communication services for employees, customers and visitors in the buildings. Depending on the customer's wishes and requirements, radio planning is the first step. Here, the system type, mobile radio networks (2G, 3G, 4G), supply antennas and cable types are defined and calculated to ensure good coverage. The installation process itself is carried out in close cooperation with the customer on site. Kremsmüller is responsible for the commissioning. Test calls are made to check whether the mobile radio installation functions smoothly and without any interference. Finally, acceptance takes place with A1 and the customer on site. In recent months, the customers of indoor mobile radio installations have included Red Bull, OMV, the Hofburg and the State Archives to name but a few!

A Feat of Strength in Schwechat
A Feat of Strength in Schwechat
Two major shutdowns at Borealis and OMV posed a challenge for all those involved. At peak hours more than 500 employees were on duty.
Performing high-quality work under time pressure, scheduling and coordinating numerous employees, ensuring safety performance ─ these are some of the many factors that make a major turnaround a challenge. Decades of experience and untiring dedication mean, however, that Kremsmüller never ceases to relish being deployed for such tasks. Maintenance activities accounted for most of the shutdown work at the Borealis plant. Around 1,000 new pipe connections were welded, 1,200 fittings replaced or renewed and around 8,000 flange connections processed. The stoppage at OMV was even more extensive. A new flue gas pipeline was installed at the heart of the refinery, the FCC (Fluid Catalytic Cracking) plant where crude oil is converted into important precursors for fuel production. The task in the complex ethylene plant comprised pipeline construction and steelwork as part of the replacement of two heat exchangers. The fittings service department was responsible for more than 1,700 parts. All in all, 1,614 safety valves, 61 butterfly valves, 20 gate valves and 26 shuttle valves of different nominal diameters were serviced. One aspect Kremsmüller particularly cares about is safety. The orders could be processed without incidents, not only with regard to the task at hand, but also in terms of safety.

High-Tech for Main Natural Gas Artery
High-Tech for Main Natural Gas Artery
In an I&C project that lasted a year and a half, the very latest measuring instruments for natural gas pipes were installed
Austria also makes a major contribution to the region-wide provision of natural gas. With around 1140 kilometers of high-pressure pipelines between the Slovakian-Austrian and Austrian-Italian borders, the main artery of the Central European transmission network runs right across our country. More than 30 billion cubic metres of natural gas are transported annually through this pipeline network. To ensure better gas measurement using state-of-the-art technology, Kremsmueller was involved on-site in this high-tech project for one and a half years. Eight existing filter separators were replaced by new ones and 28 ultrasonic gas meters (USGM) were installed with the required pressure and temperature measurements. The station's control system was enhanced with the new signals from the ultrasonic gas meter measurements and filter separators and the visualization was adapted accordingly. What was particularly challenging was the ongoing operation during the work. The new measuring system had to be commissioned in parallel to the existing one.

Kremsmüller's Telecommunications Technology Division provided optimum network performance at the Austrian Grand Prix in Spielberg.
Kremsmueller was also actively involved in the preparations for the Austrian Formula 1 Grand Prix and the Moto GP in Spielberg, thereby ensuring high-speed data transmission on the race days. Over a period of 1,400 working hours, the mobile network at the Red Bull Ring was strengthened, expanded and upgraded. Installation and start-up both ran smoothly without any interruptions. The Telecommunications Technology Division is working at full capacity with its mobile event teams. The Danube Island Festival (Donauinselfest), Nova Rock, Erzbergrodeo or the Electric Love Festival are just a few of the events where WhatsApp and Co. are pushing the limits of mobile phone providers. The event antenna constructed by Kremsmüller promises maximum performance for smartphones. For example, videos can be shared or sent at lightning speed without overload. An evaluation of the Vienna City Marathon in April, for instance, showed a success rate of 99.94 percent with 175,000 login attempts in one hour!

Climbing Exercise on Span Poles
Climbing Exercise on Span Poles
A 30-year-old power supply line was replaced at a height of 18 metres ─ no mean feat for the Electrical Engineering Division.
The engineers of Kremsmüller's Telecommunications Division are always working at lofty heights. This, though, is not usually the order of the day for employees from the electrical instrumentation and control technology department. At Donawitz, a 30-year-old power line stretching from the span pole to the transformer station was replaced by a new one, which meant that cable terminations had to be installed at a height of 18 meters. As the pylon is located in rough terrain in the forest, work could not be carried out using scaffolding or a lifting platform. Support came from professional industrial climbers who took over the job. "For this type of work, electrotechnical expertise is of paramount importance. In this particular case, though, it was also necessary to have a sufficient head for heights to be able to carry out the task in a calm and composed manner. A unique challenge that left a strong impression on everyone," says the project manager. If you would like to find out more about our projects in the electrical engineering sector, please contact us.
