The foundry of the aluminium processing plant in Wutöschingen in Germany has been equipped with an intelligent Xamax energy management system for electricity and gas, which ensures that energy is put to efficient use. At Aluminiumwerke Wutöschingen AG & Co. KG, the optimisation system consists of several components. For example, the fully automatic load control monitors several induction furnaces with capacities between 1 and 10 MW, various controls of the rolling mills and all the plant’s holding furnaces. The load control system reduces the maximum quarter-hour peak load from previously 26 MW by approximately one quarter to around 20 MW.
Imbach & Cie AG in Nebikon is one of Switzerland’s largest providers of forging services. They export high-quality metal parts worldwide. Manufacturing these products requires a great deal of electrical energy. Hence Imbach AG relies on Xamax energy optimisation and reactive power compensation systems.
At the end of May 2017, the Lake Lucerne Shipping Company (SVG - Schifffahrtsgesellschaft des Vierwaldstättersees) put its new, large motor ship into operation. Along on board is a power optimisation system from Xamax. The system monitors power supply and controls the consumption of the entire kitchen facility.
Oerlikon Metco AG is a leading global provider of surface solutions. Coating, refining and inspecting the surfaces of materials are energy-intensive processes. Hence, at its factories, Oerlikon Metco relies on Xamax systems in order to be able to use electrical power as efficiently as possible.
Schmiedewerk Stooss AG in Hedingen is saving about CHF 15,000 per year with Xamax's energy optimisation system. Manufacturing high-quality forged parts requires a great deal of electrical energy and using the Xamax fully automatic load management system is paying off.
Financial support for new transformers at the Flumenthal power station thanks to Xamax
Building on its many years of experience of Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE) competitive tenders, Xamax AG has won CHF 180,000 of financial support for new transformers at the Flumenthal run-of-river power station. To do so, Xamax professionals worked closely with Alpiq Hydro Aare AG, the hydropower station operator.
