Siemens to Supply Digitalised Switchgear to3 Steel Makers in Jalna
Siemens announced that it will supply advanced power transmission equipment with integrated digital technologies to Icon Steel, Geetai Steels and Gajkesari Steels & Alloys Jalna in Maharashtra. The installation includes 11 bays of state of the art 132 kilovolts gas insulated switchgear, which have a modular design and will enable increased efficiency, reduced operational costs and ensure safe operations even under extreme environmental conditions.
The gas-insulated switchgear will be designed as Sensgear devices, the first of its kind digitalised substation products that offer valuable data analytics applications for the transmission industry, manufactured at Siemens’ Aurangabad Factory and based on digitalisation solution from Siemens globally.
Sensgear devices have a smart and robust IoT gateway securely transmitting the minimum amount of required information to a cloud-based storage and visualisation platform, providing operators with a comprehensive and quick overview of their assets. Through the fast and efficient collection, analysis and usage of mass data produced by the gas-insulated switchgear in real-time, asset-related decisions will be facilitated, resulting in improved performance and optimised operations.
