- New Simotics HV M slipring motors provide range of power up to 4.5 MW
- Easy integration into SIDRIVE IQ applications for highest availability, serviceability, productivity and efficiency
- Easy plant integration due to 3-D Motor models to speed up complete plant integration processes
- Certified and proven Siemens MICALASTIC® VPI insulation system with extreme long lifetime
Building on more than a century of experience in manufacturing slipring motors, Siemens today announces the new Simotics HV M slipring motor. Designed and engineered for applications mainly in the cement and mining industries, the newest slipring motor is implemented in a wide range of applications including but not limited to mills, crushers, conveyors and fans. The new platform motor with its power range up to 4.5 MW completes the Siemens slipring motor family which covers now the power range from 0.5 to 8.2 MW.
- Conveyor system will move 127,500 tons of primary crushed ore per day
- New Siemens’ gearless drive technology to increase reliability and efficiency additionally by up to 4 percent
- Maintenance requirements of the drive system significantly reduced
Powered by Siemens’ new gearless drive technology, thyssenkrupp’s high-capacity overland conveyor will access one of the world’s largest copper reserves in Quellaveco. The Quellaveco mine in Peru contains approximately 7.5 million tons of copper in ore reserves – enough to wire 80 million homes or equip 90 million electric vehicles.
- Increased power density and user-friendliness through easy handling
- Plug and play installation and rapid replacement of individual modules
- Increase in redundancy and degradation rates for fuel cell plants
Building on the success of the previous BZM34 and BZM120 fuel cell modules, Siemens aims to optimize the power density and user-friendliness of fuel cell plants on board of air-independent underwater vehicles with its new BZM evo fuel cell module. A single BZM evo has a nominal power of 40 kW. Future plants will be able to provide a maximum power of 320 – 480 kW, depending on the selected type of installation and number of fuel cell modules, without exceeding the footprint of an existing BZM34 or BZM120 plant.
Siemens Water Solutions successfully installed and started up a Zimpro® wet air oxidation (WAO) system at a global petrochemical company’s olefins plant in the Southern U.S.
The order, received in November 2017, is the second Zimpro® wet air oxidation system supplied to the customer. The first system was supplied in 2004.
The Zimpro® WAO system will treat spent caustic generated in the production of ethylene by destroying odorous and high chemical oxygen demand (COD) pollutants. The system also generates an effluent that can be safely neutralized and sent to a biological treatment plant, where it is further treated for discharge.
Siemens Water Solutions addresses water and wastewater needs of the oil and gas industry with a portfolio that includes physical and chemical separation, biological treatment, and complex hydrothermal technologies.
From 14 to 17 September 2017, representatives from the worlds of politics and industry met at the New Mobility World to shape the future of mobility across industries. The event took place within the context of the IAA 2017. Under the banner "Shaping future mobility systems – from understanding to optimizing," Siemens exhibited at Booth 39 in Hall 3.1 with an array of current applications and solutions surrounding the topics of charging technology for electric vehicles and intelligent communication systems linking vehicles and infrastructure. Siemens offers a wide range of products and solutions that help shape the future of mobility already today.
From July 4 to 6, 2017, all the paper industry met in Frankfurt am Main at the Zellcheming-Expo, Europe's leading trade fair for the pulp and paper industry and its suppliers. Under the banner "Discover the value of the Digital Enterprise - with Sipaper", Siemens showcased its latest applications and solutions from the Sipaper portfolio at booth D50 in Hall 4.1.
The discovery of the dynamo-electric principle has brought about greater changes to the way our society lives than practically any other scientific breakthrough. By inventing the dynamo machine, not only did Werner von Siemens help bring about the advent of electrical machinery, he was also instrumental in accelerating and facilitating industrial processes. Seen from the perspective of society, this completely changed accepted concepts of time and mobility.
In May 2014 Siemens, together with the public utilities of Mainz, Linde and the RheinMain University of Applied Sciences, has laid the foundation stone for a new type of energy storage system. Now, time has come: By pressing a symbolic button, the Chairman of the Board of Linde Group, Dr. Wolfgang Büchele, Siemens board member Professor Siegfried Russwurm, two board members of Stadtwerke Mainz AG, Detlev Höhne and Dr. Tobias Brosze, and Professor Dr. Detlev Reymann, President of RheinMain University, officially launched a hydrogen production plant at the Energiepark Mainz on July 2, 2015. With the support of the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology as part of the Energy Storage Funding Initiative the 17-million-project could be realized. The system, equipped with an electrolyzer from Siemens, will convert surplus electricity from wind farms to hydrogen from now on. In this way, it will be possible to store electricity from renewable sources over longer periods of time. With a peak rating of up to 6 megawatts the plant is the largest of its kind in the world.
The principle of electrolysis has been tried and tested for decades. What is special about the Mainz system is that it involves highly dynamic PEM high-pressure electrolysis which is particularly suitable for high current density and can react within milliseconds to sharp increases in power generation from wind and solar sources. In this electrolyzer a proton exchange membrane (PEM) separates the two electrodes at which oxygen and hydrogen are formed. On the front and back of the membrane are precious-metal electrodes that are connected to the positive and negative poles of the voltage source. This is where the water is split. The system in Mainz will thus have a capacity relevant for bottlenecks in the grid and small wind farms.
On the first day of Hannover Messe, April 25, Klaus Helmrich welcomed you to the yearly Siemens press conference. As member of the Managing Board of Siemens AG, Klaus Helmrich is responsible for the Divisions Digital Factory as well as Process Industries and Drives. The press conference took place at 6:30 PM, in room 1 of the fair's Convention Center.
