… is what’s needed when one of the largest steel producers in Europe expands.
In the newly-expanded transformer station, thousands of amperes are now being distributed safely and reliably to the work areas. The E-MSR [electrical, instrumentation and control engineering] experts from Kremsmueller installed eleven kilometers of conductor rails in the 110 kV transformer station, using robust and short-circuit proof round pipes. This guarantees maximum safety even in the case of possible malfunctions.
During installation, the symmetrical and space-saving positioning of the lines was particularly important. The three-phase lines, 50 to 120 mm in diameter, run through the 200-meter long and three-story high transformer station. Only bending machines are capable of shaping these pipes into the proper forms. This requires a good deal of know-how because damage or cracks can prove fatal.
Including equipment such as switches and couplings, a total of five tons of high-voltage devices and lines were installed.
The client surprised the electrical experts at Kremsmueller with an unusual follow-on order. After completion of the electrical installations, a construction company had left the plant contaminated. Kremsmueller experts to the rescue – since the client could rest assured that the cleanup would be properly performed and the plant returned to a safe operational state.
