Green power supply for metallurgical plants
X-Pact® Eco Grid is able to connect metallurgical plant units to an economical power grid. With renewable energy sources and energy storage units connected directly to the eco grid, the plant is not only more flexible and independent of overall variations or power outages that might occur in the public grid, but also relies on CO2-neutral resources for green steel production, such as solar or wind energy.
As a systems supplier and system integrator of large-scale steel production plants, we combine electrical consumers and power producers. Our X-Pact® Eco Grid connects them to hybrid power distribution grids, AC & DC, thus improving the plant’s energy efficiency. It is the link between a green metals industry and new green energy supply systems. Combined with energy management consulting, business case definition and concept development as well as solution design and system integration, we provide an integrated solution – from a single source.
