SET’s electro-mechanical differential gear points the way ahead for the entire wind sector. In the interim this technology is also meeting with great interest in industry.
In the 4th quarter of 2014 Sulzer Pumps GmbH awarded SET GmbH a contract to install its electro-mechanical differential gear system (DSgear-set®) at the PCK refinery in Schwedt (Germany). By the 2nd quarter of 2015 the DSgear-set® will replace the existing direct drive system in order to meet future challenges in terms of sustainability and life cycle costs (LCC). SET’s electro-mechanical differential gear emerged as the best technology ahead of the competition in view of its speed variability range, efficiency, and robustness.
The DSgear-set® has to provide a rated power of 4,080 kW for a boiler feed-water pump, which is essential for the refinery processes at the site. In this flagship project the operating companies expect the DSgear-set® to ensure high cost savings, maximum reliability and Efficiency.Due to the excellent cooperation between the companies involved, follow-up projects are planned.
