ENERGY SYSTEMS

Optimally Supplied

A reliable supply with energy is a core factor in our daily life. We contribute to this significantly.

The reliability of supply from power plants is ensured also in case of a failure of the external power supply, for example, by the use of emergency power systems. This enables continued operation or controlled shut-down of the power plant. Fail-safe and high-availability controllers and control units developed according to the highest world-wide functional safety standards are used for diesel engines in this domain. Clearly defined pro- cesses implemented on the basis of IEC standards provide the basis for this.

Scope of Services

  • Process control according to IEC 61508 and IEC 60880

  • Development and maintenance of access control systems

  • Realization of development tasks in all project phases

  • Preparation of the FMEA / FMECA for the hardware and software used

  • Development of safety concepts

Security and Safety in Power Plants

Other cornerstones ensuring the reliability of supply are security and safety in power plants to protect them against unauthorized intrusion or intentional attacks from the outside. We support power plant operators and utility companies with development and maintenance services for high-availability access control systems – even in the most sensitive and critical areas of the energy supply system such as, for example, in nuclear power plants.

Safety

With our comprehensive competence and experience in the areas of safety and security, we support our clients from the initial concept to the implementation of their projects or perform this in-house under our own management. Professional application of the relevant standards is a routine element in the daily work of our engineers.
