Orlando, FL
  • Experts will discuss Siemens portfolio of hardware and software technologies and services for the power generation industry

Siemens will showcase its portfolio of power generation technologies and services leveraging electrification, automation, and digitalization at the 2018 POWER-GEN International (PGI) conference in Orlando, Florida, December 4-6. Siemens’ experts will be available at booth #2779 to discuss how the company is shaping the future of the energy industry with power generation equipment and services that provide significant efficiency gains through new engines and turbines, prescriptive maintenance, remote monitoring, and cybersecurity capabilities.
 

Digitalization and Power Generation Services
 

Siemens Power Generation Services will address the company’s extensive portfolio of traditional and digital service solutions for the energy industry – from preventative and corrective maintenance, to performance enhancement based on Siemens’ domain knowledge and fleet experience. Experts will showcase Siemens and Bentley Systems’ new asset performance management (APM) technology/software for power plants, which is part of the Omnivise digital solutions portfolio. APM brings together Bentley’s asset performance software and Siemens’ technology and service expertise to help power plant owners improve performance through digitalization. In addition, the company’s experts will be on hand to discuss customized consulting and training programs, as well as upgrades to the latest version of the SPPA-T3000 control system.
 

The company will also feature its industry leading cybersecurity portfolio to help customers address all aspects of their operational cybersecurity programs. From assessment and planning, to developing critical capabilities and conducting security monitoring and response, Siemens offers solutions to not only secure SPPA-T3000 systems, but also protect entire production facilities.


Digitalization for Power Generation and Storage Solutions
 

At PGI, Siemens will feature its portfolio of advanced power generation technologies and energy storage solutions, including reciprocating engines up to 2 MW, KG2 gas turbines, and its Compressed Air Energy Storage (CAES) solution. Siemens gas engine (SGE) portfolio offers highly efficient solutions for power generation, cogeneration, trigeneration, waste-to-energy, industrial buildings and many other applications. Siemens will showcase its 200kW – 2MW high-performance engine product line. The company will also feature its KG2 gas turbines designed for minimal maintenance in a compact footprint, which is ideal for continuous power generation onshore and offshore, emergency and standby power, and combined heat and power (CHP) plants.
 

Experts will showcase the company’s CAES grid-scale energy storage solution, which provides operating flexibility and long duration storage needed to balance intermittent renewable power and real-time grid demand. The solution enables renewable transmission optimization with fast start-up, rapid ramp rates, 90 percent generation turndown and 30 percent load absorption turndown. CAES can charge and discharge simultaneously and offers hydrogen fuel burn capability based on the proven SGT-800 combustion system.
 

Motors, Drives and Power Conversion Electronics
 

Siemens will also have experts available to discuss motor-driven applications such as pumps, fans, compressors and material handling systems. SIMOTICS motors and SINAMICS drives for power generation and utility markets are highly efficient and can operate in a variety of harsh environments with a long service life. SINAMICS also offers power electronic converters for any combination of AC and DC conversion, which helps integrate renewable power generation and energy storage technologies. Additionally, Flender Corporation, a Siemens company, will be showcasing the DX500, the newest product in the DIAGNOSTEX® line. The DX500 measures vibration and temperature in motors and drives, sending notifications directly to a smartphone for predictive gear unit maintenance.
 

Please visit Booth 2779, Hall B at the event where subject matter experts will be available to discuss featured topics and more.
