The responsible and climate friendly handling of energy and resources along the operational value chain is a significant factor of success for industrial enterprises. It bridles your cost drivers and enhances your ecobalance. And where your competitors match your price and quality, the customer more and more often prefers a green image.
Now a thought-out energy management is required which supports your foresightful, systematic coordination of
- energy procurement,
- energy conversion,
- energy distribution and
- energy use
by suitable strategies and actions to collect, document and visualize your consumptions. TRIPS has proven more than 20 years of competence by successful projects in the field of energy and load management in plant and building technology.
Beginning with a grid analysis we observe and document your energy consumptions and flows, identify high demand areas and weaknesses, register your consumption-based costs, in relation to production units as well as to cost centers. Due to this you easily fulfill your legal restrictions, e.g. concerning your duty to report your greenhouse gas emissions.
To ensure your grid quality we monitor and limit for you load peaks, control current-dependent loss-of-mains and force up the transmission capacity by especially designed and produced power capacitors, which compensate reactive power in your plant. The building installation is equipped with appropriate low voltage switchgears, which only need little maintenance. Thus your invest generally refinances within one to three years.
Profound procedural know-how has sharpened our view for your media consumption concerning compressed-air, refrigeration, heating, drive engineering, lighting and air conditioning plants. The working time related activation of those media by an intelligent process control and an appropriate plant and procedural technology reveals possible savings and supports you optimizing your production planning.
We implement for you a significant energy information system which provides automatically KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) about consumption-, operating, plant, production and condition data for the energetic evaluation of your production plant. Flexible interfaces transfer the measured data to your ERP-System. There – together with the won operating data – they supply the basis for an economic and forward-looking energy management.
Numerous examples proof a profound industry and professional knowledge, which we could setup systematically in our enterprise.
One is the PLC-migration of a refrigeration plant on bahalf of a namable automobile manufacturer of premium cars. Order scope was the installation and migration of a superordinated fully automatic control of the refrigerating pool. Until then it consisted of discrete cooling stations which – with four cooling units each – supplied three paint shops. This pool has been replaced, the technical status of the stations and its operating has been unified and a superordinated visualization has been implemented. The control serves to:
- allow a superior refrigeration for all three stations,
- allow entry of operating parameters and their influence to the control,
- distribute the cooling demand optimally over the cooling units,
- reduce the switching frequency by including the memory,
- bring out output reserves,
- exloit more economically the primary energies heat and current.
