- 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.
