Siemens boosts ef­fi­ciency of Pak­istan su­gar mill by 10pc

The Pak Banker - - COMPANIES/BOSS -

Ad­vanced drive tech­nol­ogy from Siemens will in­crease the op­er­a­tional ef­fi­ciency of one of Pak­istan's largest su­gar mills by up to 10 per­cent. Faran Su­gar Mills will in­stall 19 Siemens elec­tric mo­tors at its Shaikh Bhirkio, District Tando Muhammad Khan plant, im­ple­ment­ing the com­pany's pre­mium ef­fi­ciency SIMOTICS IE3 mo­tor for the first time in Pak­istan's su­gar in­dus­try.

Siemens will also in­stall high-ef­fi­ciency SIMOTICS IE2 mo­tors, and to­gether they will sup­port op­ti­miza­tion of the plant's en­ergy us­age, in­creas­ing op­er­a­tional ef­fi­ciency by up to 10 per­cent. IE2 and IE3 are in­ter­na­tional stan­dards for high and pre­mium ef­fi­ciency mo­tors in in­dus­trial op­er­a­tions.

"Pak­istan is one of the world's largest pro­duc­ers of su­gar, and the in­te­gra­tion of IE3 mo­tor tech­nol­ogy is a mile­stone in sup­port­ing the in­dus­try to con­tinue com­pet­ing on a global stage," said Hel­mut von Struve, Man­ag­ing Direc­tor of Siemens in Pak­istan.

"Highly-ef­fi­cient Siemens mo­tor tech­nol­ogy in the in­dus­trial sec­tor is an im­por­tant way to en­sure our cus­tomers' in­fras­truc­ture is op­er­at­ing at its most re­li­able, en­ergy ef­fi­cient and cost ef­fec­tive. We're proud to be the cho­sen tech­nol­ogy part­ner for the first in­stal­la­tion of IE3 mo­tors in Pak­istan's su­gar in­dus­try." The highly-ef­fi­cient mo­tors, which range from 30 kilo­watts (kW) to 200 kW, will re­duce the amount of elec­tric­ity used by the mill, which op­er­ates an in­de­pen­dent power plant. The elec­tric­ity saved by the mo­tors will be contributed back to the na­tional grid, in­creas­ing rev­enue and strength­en­ing the elec­tric­ity sup­ply.

Ex­ist­ing Siemens mo­tor tech­nol­ogy at the plant has al­ready en­abled Faran Su­gar Mills to re­al­ize ef­fi­ciency gains of two per­cent and cost re­duc­tions of be­tween two and three per­cent. Elec­tric drives and mo­tors con­sume up to 70 per­cent of the en­ergy used in in­dus­trial plants. Siemens pre­mium-ef­fi­ciency mo­tors (IE3) are up to 10 per­cent more ef­fi­cient than con­ven­tional IE1 mo­tors, mak­ing the anal­y­sis and mod­ern­iza­tion of drive tech­nol­ogy in a man­u­fac­tur­ing fa­cil­ity a po­ten­tial for sig­nif­i­cant cost-sav­ing.

As part of its port­fo­lio for process in­dus­try and drives Siemens also has the world's first true one-stop so­lu­tion for en­tire drive trains. The Siemens In­te­grated Drive Sys­tem in­te­grates seam­lessly in any drive train and any au­to­ma­tion en­vi­ron­ment, turn­ing com­mon com­po­nents into drive sys­tems al­low­ing eas­ier di­ag­no­sis of po­ten­tial er­rors, and a more flex­i­ble ap­proach to main­te­nance. The re­sult is lower wear on ma­chin­ery and ul­ti­mately shorter time to mar­ket.

Siemens re­cently an­nounced the inau­gu­ra­tion of a new ser­vice and re­pair cen­ter in Karachi for gen­er­a­tors and mo­tors, ex­tend­ing the range of ser­vices of­fered to cater for in­creas­ing cus­tomer de­mand in Pak­istan.

The com­pany has been a key provider of in­fras­truc­ture so­lu­tions to Pak­istan since 1947, im­ple­ment­ing tech­nol­ogy for power gen­er­a­tion, trans­mis­sion and distribution, in­dus­trial au­to­ma­tion and so­lu­tions for in­no­va­tive build­ing man­age­ment sys­tems.
