Awarded for the pump product, system or service, which has made a significant contribution to environmental issues, such as energy savings, emissions control, noise reduction or life cycle costs.
Siemens installation of Variable Speed Drives on Marchwood Power Station Main Cooling Water Pumps
Marchwood Power Station is located near Southampton on the Solent estuary and in 2015, they contracted Siemens DF&PD to convert three mechanically throttled pump systems on the plant cooling water intake system to variable speed flow control.
On completion of the project, the power station has seen significant energy savings and a dramatically improved station power output (more MW's for the same fuel usage) based upon optimised cooling.
