Siemens Limited has announced that it will deliver advanced power transmission equipment with integrated digital technologies to Icon Steel, Geetai Steels and Gajkesari Steels & Alloys, steel manufacturers from Jalna MIDC belt, Maharashtra. These steel manufacturers will be equipped with 11 bays of state-of-the-art 132 kilovolts (kV) Gas Insulated Switchgears (GIS).
The switchgears, from the digitalised Sensgear portfolio, have a modular design and will enable increased efficiency, safe and reduced operational costs even under extreme environmental conditions.
Sensgear devices, manufactured at Siemens’ Aurangabad Factory, are the first of its kind digitalised substation products that offer valuable data analytics applications for the transmission industry. Sensgear devices have a smart and robust IoT gateway securely transmitting required information to a cloud-based storage and visualization platform, providing operators with a quick overview of their assets.
Through the fast and efficient collection, analysis and usage of mass data produced by GIS in real-time, asset-related decisions will be taken resulting in improved performance and optimised operations.
Gerd Deusser, Executive Vice President and Head, Energy, Siemens Limited, said, “We are committed to driving the energy transition to enable more sustainable, reliable and productive ecosystems through our technologies. With enhanced data analytics, Sensgear devices will help our customers improve efficiency and sustainability of assets and operations.”
