SIPOS Aktorik has received confirmation of the commissioning and DCS integration of more than 2,000 electric actuators at RWE Eemshaven in the Netherlands. Manufactured, supplied, installed and supported by SIPOS, the devices will play a key role automating valves at the coal fired power plant.
The prestigious Eemshaven project represents an investment by RWE of approximately 220 million euros. When fully operational, the RWE plant will require a workforce of over 350 people.
Key features of SIPOS’ products that influenced selection by RWE included variable speed functionality for soft start and stop and an undervoltage performance capability that ensures continued operation without needing to oversize the actuators. Additionally, PROFIBUS DP V2 redundancy functionality providing enhanced fieldbus capability was significant in the selection of SIPOS’ products.
More than 7,000 of SIPOS Aktorik’s electric actuators are now installed at RWE plants in Niederaussem, Neurath, Hamm Westfalen and Eemshaven.
