Our next SET event in virtual!

SET is honored to be invited by Austrian Chinese Business Association (ACBA) to join “ACBA Webinar-Reihe: Kärnten – Guangxi” tomorrow and present our solution for the better energy efficiency – #SETCON, electro-mechanical variable speed gearbox.

Besides this special Webinar, we will also join the “Innovation Hub Taiwan” and #greentechdays held by ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA TaiwanAUSSENWIRTSCHAFT AUSTRIA and Enterprise Europe Network Austria in the following weeks.

We are looking forward to meeting you at these Webinars!

Our next SET event in virtual!

Happy International Women’s Day!

While any day can be the day to celebrate the women in your life, today, March 8th, is International Women’s Day, which gives you one more reason to do that.

On this special day, we SET would like to thank all the incredible achievements done by women around the world, and we will continue to build a friendly working environment with true equality, which we’ve been doing all the time.

A big THANK YOU, for all the amazing women in our lives.

SET part of VGB symposium in Papenburg on the 07.09.2021

SET will represented its SETCON technology on VGB´s symposium “Dampferzeuger, Industrie- und Heizkraftwerke & BHKW 2021 in Papenburg (Germany) on the 07.09.2021.
Secure your ticket in time, take part in this event with trade exhibition and learn more about our energy-efficient SETCON technology.

Topics of the SET presentation:

  • Introduction to the SETCON technology
  • Advantages of the system and improved energy efficiency
  • Practical example from a power plant in Germany

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.

Test runs successfully completed at swb Erzeugung AG & CO KG

SET successfully completed the 35-day test run periode at swb Erzeugung AG in Bremen, Germany with SETCON® SE6 recently . The expected energy savings compared to the replaced variable-speed gear coupling have been exceeded by far, so that the power plant unit can be operated even more efficiently in the future. This modernization project is a great success for everyone involved and guarantees efficient and reliable operation in the Mittelbüren power plant in the future.

In summary, the following project highlights result:

  • Energy savings of 12 815 MWh per year compared to the variable speed gear coupling
  • CO2 reduction of approx. 12 400 tons per year (corresponds to a CO2 consumption of 1 550 German residents)
  • Mechanical and electrical implementation and commissioning in 15 days
  • The foundations were not changed and the existing anchor points of the variable-speed gear coupling were adopted, thanks to the matching footprint
  • The existing lubricating oil cooler could continue to be used, the working oil cooler has been shut down due to lower the lower losses and reduced oil flow
  • Neither the pump nor the Main drive had to be repositioned on the existing foundation
  • Simple and safe integration into the existing control system (through SET’s control system simulation and customer acceptance in advance)
