The pursuit of excellence




Energy saving solutions for industry

In sectors such as the food, chemical or pharmaceutical industries, the potential for energy savings through the use of combined heat and power is particularly high. This area requires increasingly complex integrated solutions for the efficient supply of electricity, process heat, cooling and steam. Overall efficiency levels of 87 percent and above are not uncommon in these sectors. Experienced 2G engineers with large motor skills will take over full project management upon request and provide professional support for peripheral component development and integration into existing infrastructure.

2G Services in the Age of Industry 4.0

The economics of a CHPP is determined not only by the level of efficiency, but also to a large extent by service maintenance. It’s not just about maintenance work like changing the oil and servicing spark plugs. Modern communication technologies and innovative analysis software now allow critical operating parameters to be monitored at an early stage and provide the plant operator with recommended actions to be able to proactively avoid damage and failures. If on-site service is required, highly trained service technicians will provide fast and reliable assistance. Only 140 service vehicles are available from the extensive service network.
