New Partnership with Kraft Werks Engineering

SET Sustainable Energy Technologies GmbH (SET) has signed an agreement with the company Kraft Werks Engineering (KWE) based in Medina Ohio U.S. recently. This agreement will allow Kraft Werks Engineering to support the sales and service activities in North America as well as introduce SETCON® to the exclusively selected customers. This official announcement also means that SET Sustainable Energy Technologies GmbH has officially expanded their business to a third territory, after EMEA and Asia.

Kraft Werks Engineering was formed through the acquisition of the GÝROL® Fluid Drive and TLT-ASH Handling product lines whose roots can date back to 1930. As a specialist in the large precision machining services, Kraft Werks Engineering has many years of experience in the energy and oil & gas industry, moreover, the company consists of experienced and skilled team who have a deep know-how about the local market.

According to the information from International Energy Agency, the global energy-related CO2 emissions grew to 36.3 gigatonnes in 2021, which is the highest record ever at the annual level. As the fuel mix of US power generation is undergoing a considerable transition and coal power has declined in the last decade as the shale gas boom made natural gas-fired generators more cost-competitive, however, the CO2 emissions of the US in 2021 still increased by 4.5% from 2020, which pushed emissions to 4.6 gigatonnes.

Together with Kraft Werks Engineering, SET Sustainable Energy Technologies GmbH will introduce their high efficient drive – SETCON®, the electro-mechanical variable-speed gearbox designed to control speed of large pumps and compressors – to the North American market and help the local business to optimize their energy efficiency and to reduce the emissions.

Energy savings comparable to the energy production of a 4 MW wind mill

In addition, to the high CO2 emission reduction, our recently implemented 6.5 MW SETCON – variable speed gearbox is saving up to 12 815 MWh energy per year, compared to the replaced hydro-dynamic gear coupling. This corresponds to an energy consumption of

  • ~ 4 250 German households per year (3 012 kWh / year / household) or an energy production of a
  • 4 MW wind mill with good wind conditions (3 000 full load hours)

Energy savings in comparison
Replacement of a hydro-dynamic gear coupling with a 6.5 MW by a SETCON SE6

Significant CO2 savings due to SETCON technology

According to the latest measurements the recently implemented SETCON SE6 – variable speed gearbox is saving up to 12 400 tons of CO2 per year, compared to the replaced hydro-dynamic gear coupling on-site.

This represents an average CO2 consumption of ~ 1 476 EU citizens per year (8,4 t/year – 2018) and contributes significantly to industrial decarbonisation.
