By replacing your gas turbine drive with our electric drive train, you cut your drive-related CO₂ and NOx emissions to zero, because the completely combustion-free electric-powered drive train generates no emissions whatsoever on-site.
It’s important for us, in Siemens Process Industries and Drives, that we support the industry not just with top-of-the-art products and systems but also by offering complete programs such as turbine replacement with the target, so that our customers fulfill their commitment in CO2 reduction targets.Horst Fischer, Siemens
You’ll also profit from significantly higher efficiency. The entire electric drive train has an efficiency rate of up to 96 percent and therefore consumes far less energy than a turbine. Unlike turbines, changing ambient conditions like temperature in no way impair these two factors. Optimized start and stop conditions also allow for fast stops and immediate restarts with run-up time of a few minutes. And the economical speed range can be extended from 25 to 120 percent of load. This means that the electric drive enables you to operate in all possible areas.
Drive Train Analytics are data acquisition, processing and visualization tools for monitoring of health condition and operational efficiency of drive systems (drives, motors, gear units). The main elements are hardware installation and commissioning of a suitable measurement solution for continuous data collection and connection with the cloud platform, as well as automated data processing, analysis and visualization to support condition monitoring, operations and maintenance planning.
Drive Train Analytics can optionally be leveraged by Digital Drive Train Services, such as the evaluation and interpretation of the recorded operational and historical data by a SIEMENS expert. The comprehensive service portfolio for Large Drives thus comprises a wide range of lifecycle, data-based and value-added services for electrical motors and converters throughout the entire product lifecycle.
With Drive Train Analytics and the related Digital Drive Train Services, we enable our customers to reduce downtime by up to 35-45% and maintenance cost by up to 30%.Martin Brucherseifer, Siemens DTA
You’ll also increase your production uptime. Due to Drive Train Analytics (DTA) and visual inspections during operation, it’s possible to operate for up to four or even five years with no shutdowns. And the electric drive train has an availability of up to 99.9 percent.
Drive Train Analytics and Digital Drive Train Services enable the reduction of non-scheduled production downtimes, acceleration of troubleshooting and issue resolution and improvement of availability-centered maintenance and operation. This means, in your terms and practical business operations, for example:
Would you like to replace your turbine with an electric drive train? You can rely on Siemens. We’ll provide everything from a single source – from an initial ROI calculation to the feasibility study to project execution; and from providing all components to installation, assembly and commissioning, including documentation and service by our electrical engineering experts. We’ll also be happy to train your personnel.
With Siemens, you benefit from a single point of contact throughout all phases of the project. If you would like your engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor to handle the planning, we’ll be happy to work with you and the EPC to coordinate the individual work packages, interfaces, workflow and timing and to define the areas of responsibility.
Contact for calculation
Parameters like ambient conditions, load, power and operating hours vary from one project to the next and can influence the calculation. The configurations of the turbines to be replaced and the specific electric drive trains required also affect the calculation examples. We would be happy to take a look at your specific drive situation and prepare an individual calculation for you.
