Never run out of power

Electrical power must always be available when and where it is needed in the cement production process. Building on Siemens’ SICEMENT Electrification is a wise choice if you want to ensure a consistent supply no matter what. Siemens has been a leader in the electrical industry since 1847. Siemens’ extensive knowledge of energy configuration, planning, and administration guarantees dependable, secure, and economical. Now Alpha Drives Ltd. uses the same methods to drive businesses forward today.

Innovative solutions: obtain the necessary energy

Cement facilities use a wide range of electrical distribution, from low-voltage switchgear to high-voltage switchgear, and from kilowatts to megawatts. In collaboration with our clients, we assess your needs for energy systems and create specialised solutions to meet your obstacles all the way through the energy conversion process. Additionally: SICEMENT Electrification takes into account resource scarcity and contributes to climate protection by utilising technology and skills to provide a dependable and cost-effective power supply.

Complex demands call for specific know-how

Our largely electrified, automated, and digitalized world places greater demands on power supply systems than ever before. Electricity has proven to be a clean, efficient, and highly versatile power carrier that meets the high-profile requirements of industrial applications.

Totally Integrated Power (TIP) is the key to reliable, safe, and efficient power supply in increasingly complex transmission and distribution environments.

The future is digital

Digitalization is one of the most fundamental revolutions of our time – simply because the benefits of digitalization help to reduce costs over the long term.

By recording the energy flows and the key cost flows in your company, you will benefit from the data analysis – through low energy costs and competitive prices for your products. Our power monitoring system helps you to establish an operational energy management.

Gain from the robust design

The basic rule of electricity is that efficiency increases with decreasing losses. Therefore, it makes sense to locate electrical substations as close as feasible to the different plant locations. All SICEMENT Electrification components can be placed close to the loads and in a decentralised location due to their maintenance-free and compact design. This helps you lower your carbon footprint and enables system design that are economically optimised.

Older electrical systems require an overhaul eventually. Siemens links you to the future as your partner for everything from plant engineering to consulting.

Systems for distributing energy:

SICEMENT Systems for distributing electricity during electrification are designed with industrial cement plants’ needs in mind. Because of its universal standardisation, they can incorporate a wide range of power-consuming equipment based on low-maintenance modules. As a result, it is feasible to connect the wide range of process applications to a single, integrated system.

The only approach to swiftly resolve issues and prevent expensive outages is to centrally control and regulate the whole energy requirement both inside the CEMAT process management control level and outward to the field.

Transformers:

The smaller the energy transmission losses are, the closer the power consumer is to the energy distribution where the supply voltage changes from a medium to a low level. Therefore, it’s crucial to place transformers as close to the power user as feasible, if only for financial reasons. For this reason, SICEMENT Electrification uses transformers that are very small and suitable for installation in almost any setting.

Siemens power generation equipment offers greater value.

Although it’s important to make the most out of resources, many plants only use a small portion of the energy in their fuel. Every industry needs reliable manufacturing methods and, ideally, zero downtime to continue being successful. Energy reserves need to be easily accessible, and a steady power source is necessary. Investing in sustainable technologies makes sense. In addition to adhering to rules and drastically reducing CO2 emissions, the goal is to optimise available resources.

Siemens is a major participant in the industrial power industry with a broad portfolio of gas and steam turbines and considerable experience in plant building. Over the past three decades, Siemens has supplied more than 80 gas and steam turbines to cement plants worldwide, demonstrating its field prowess.

HV, MV and LV switchgear models:

SICEMENT Electrification uses modular switchgear to ensure safe energy distribution across the cement plant’s complete manufacturing process, from the supply to the main energy distribution and all the way to the power users.

They cover the full range of high, medium, and low voltage distribution and are tailored to the sector’s unique industrial needs. Since every switchgear piece is integrated into the Siemens communications architecture, all critical consumption data can be sent to the CEMAT process management level.

Optimisation and management of energy:

Cement factories have a significant amount of unrealized energy-saving potential. Plant operators can constantly manage energy thanks to SICEMENT electrification. Because of its effective power distribution and total transparency in usage, this integrated system contributes to better energy utilisation and much lower costs.

Process streamlining has its optimal foundation in modules like measurement equipment for accurate consumption data collection and protection. Energy data are simply shown and assessed with our CEMAT process control system’s energy management add-ons. This has automatic load management, allocates to the appropriate cost centre based on demand, and provides works operators with a clear representation of energy consumption.

Your benefit to the environment

Siemens power management identifies your plant’s energy-intensive loads, thereby contributing to environmental protection. By examining this data and taking appropriate action, you may maximise your energy usage and expenses while also making sure you don’t exceed the contractual power limitations.

How is it carried out? The precise amount of energy used by each unit is determined by intelligent power management, which is built into SIMATIC PCS 7. This identifies the “energy wasters” so that more effective systems can take their place. Monitoring energy imports and adhering to contractual obligations by, for example, turning off specific plant components selectively are also crucial.
