Investment in the right direction
SPANGLER – the Plus of Data Processing.
The community Beilngries has always given attention to energy and cost efficiency since the construction of the municipal waste water treatment plant. There is also value attached to machines so that they do not make any negative impression due to unnecessarily high energy consumptions.
Power supply and consumption
By reconstruction measures on particularly energy-intensive plants such as the installation of a Fuzzy aeration plant of Envicon in 2006, the efficiency could be significantly improved. Together with SPANGLER a process management system of the type FlowChief was installed which included the energy management module e-Gem to make the energy consumers transparent. Thereby not only the consumers were taken into account but also the power supply in form of a combined heat and power (CHP) plant by which the first own capacity of the plant is covered. To be able to represent the complex relationships of power supply and consumption, SPANGLER installed a comprehensive measurement technology for the energy consumption. Those feed data into the energy management system and can therefore be requested and visualised by the operator.
Using not only clean but also reasonable energy
The expenses do pay off for Beilngries as, on the one hand, the plants refinance themselves by the refund of the waste water levy and, on the other hand, the energy generation and consumption can be coupled together. Therefore, power generation phases can be combined with peak loads. As a result, less expensive power must be externally purchased and relied on. Moreover, the system contains key figures which enable an evaluation of the current energy efficiency and thus is the basis for a better utilization of the plants.
