Remarkable achievement of SET in our latest Oil & Gas project

Recently, SET showcased outstanding results during the internal Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) of SETCON variable speed gearbox, in collaboration with our valued customer from Oman.

The innovative SETCON SC4A, engineered to deliver variable speed to a 4.1 MW crude oil booster pump, has been designed to excel in hazardous environments and withstand ambient temperatures of up to 55°C. Its exceptional energy efficiency performance promises significant power savings and reduced CO2 emissions compared to conventional Variable Speed Drives (VSDs), offering substantial benefits to our customer.

Exclusive presentation of the newest SE-R model of SETCON variable speed gearbox

SET team was thrilled to welcome our business partners to the SET head office in Klagenfurt. The guests had a unique opportunity to participate in the demonstrative test runs of the SETCON gearbox. The model has shown high performance and energy savings of app. 1 MW on average.

With a rated power of 2-15 MW, SETCON retrofit version is perfectly suited for on-site conditions of a drive train. Due to the matching gearbox footprint, it reduces implementation time and effort substantially. SETCON electro-mechanical design delivers significant energy savings compared to hydraulic couplings, especially in partial loads.

High energy efficiency is obligatory for industries to stay competitive

– said the Executive Director of the International Energy Agency (IEA) Fatih Birol in the frame of World Economic Forum 2024 this week:

Investments in energy efficiency are the most important now. In most cases, they pay back in 2-3 years… Even regardless of climate, just for our pockets, for our energy security, and also remain competitive. The companies who do NOT put enough emphasis on energy efficiency will be less competitive vis-a-vis others. This is a real fact now”.

With SET Sustainable Energy Technologies GmbH, the energy efficiency goal is more realistic than ever nowadays. Read our article about SETCON variable-speed drive to find energy benefits for your industry: “Why SETCON is the most energy efficient VSD on market”

Exciting impressions from the 2023 API Meeting

SET Sustainable Energy Technologies GmbH is grateful to have been represented at the 2023 API Fall Refining and Equipment Standards Meeting in Chicago. It was a great pleasure to connect with our colleagues from the oil and gas industry in the USA and join the expert discourse about the latest API standards. SET is anticipating the further development of the business relations.

Particular gratitude to Robert Snopek [Kraft Werks Engineering] for the SETCON representation.

SET Sustainable Energy Technologies GmbH shares the exciting impressions from the 2023 API Fall Refining and Equipment Standards Meeting in Chicago.

The API Fall Refining and Equipment Standards event is a meeting of the experts in the oil and natural gas industry held by the API – American Petroleum Institute to discuss state-of-the-art standards development and maintenance.

SET encourages the efficiency revolution in the variable-speed drive market

In Inspirational Role Models Month, SET Sustainable Energy Technologies GmbH aims to remind the importance of constant development. Improve the performance of both, #new_business and #retrofit projects with SETCON variable-speed gearbox.

For #retrofit projects, SETCON Servos increase the total Drive train power by app. 15% without necessary Main Drive modifications. With the matching footprint with geared fluid couplings, SETCON can reuse the anchor points to make the implementation even more cost- and time-effective. The installation may be done without major foundation changes and within only 15 days on average (for further information see: SET project with swb Erzeugung AG, Germany).

SETCON variable speed gearbox would also benefit the #new_business projects with its energy efficiency up to 97% and highly competitive efficiency in a partial load. SETCON design may include an integrated lubrication oil system to supply a Main drive and a Driven Machine inclusively. And with very small low-voltage electronics, SETCON has a very compact packaging size.

For SET as a company, the ultimate goal is to take a new, advanced, and reliable path in drive technology.

It is important to bring inspiration to both the working team and the industry in general. At SET, we encourage R&D to continuously innovate our variable-speed technology. SETCON ensures minimal energy losses to provide the market with one of the most efficient and sustainable solutions,” comments Maximilian Hehenberger, the SET COO.

Inspirational Role Models Month is celebrated every November to remind the significance of a leading example in any community.

SETCON let your Main Drive start smoothly

SETCON let your Main Drive start smoothly

SETCON Servos help the Main drive to operate more efficiently, avoid overloads, costly equipment damage, and downtimes. Surely, it is all about SETCON Soft-Start mode. This integrated technology allows to start up the whole drive train very smoothly, with a minimum time of inrush currents.

The frequency controlled SETCON Servos gradually ramp up the whole pump string from 0% speed and acting as so-called pony motors. While starting, the Main drive is disconnected from the high-voltage (HV) grid, until the Main drive reaches synchronous speed, at a pump speed of app. 50%. Herby, the Main drive´s rotor is rotating in unison with the entire drive train to build up the necessary magnetic flux. Now by connecting the accelerated Main drive to the HV grid, the time for inrush currents is reduced significantly, in comparison to DOL (direct online) starts.

The SETCON Soft-Start mode is one of the most efficient solutions for reducing inrush current as the device enhances the voltage gradually and without stress for the system. Therefore, SETCON is cost-effective in comparison with, i.e., a Main drive overload protection system, which may cause additional losses of overall drive train efficiency.

An inrush current is a time limited, very high current which a Main drive faces once started from zero speed. It can have a multiple factor (up to 6 times) of rated current during starting procedure over a certain time period. Regular experiencing of high inrush current can cause motor damages, voltage dips in the supply line (which can consequently affect other equipment) and interrupt the proper Main drive start. Furthermore, the higher level HV grid has to be designed and protected for these cases.
