Biomass - Components
Siemens steam turbines ensure high plant performance. Due to industry-leading steam cycle technology, the flexible machines can even optimize electric output in plants which have steam parameters affected by inconsistent feedstock moisture content. The Siemens industrial steam turbine portfolio can be used with any biomass boiler to generate power from 75 kW up to more than 250 MW.
Apart from the steam turbine including auxiliary equipment (generator, condenser system, monitoring and control systems), Siemens is able to deliver a wide variety of solutions for biomass plants, like power transmission and process control equipment.
Process Control in Biomass Plants
For economic, safe and sustainable operations in biomass plants Siemens offers the right products, solutions and services for the integration of automation and electrical infrastructure. With Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) and Totally Integrated Power (TIP) Siemens is the only provider of a comprehensive range of products and systems for the automation and the energy management of biomass plants. The use of TIA and TIP provides the full range of control and diagnostic options from the field level to the production control level up to the management level because all field devices, automation and drive components are monitored. Mechanical components such as motors, pumps, valves, or heat exchangers are also supervised. Plant monitoring can be performed locally, decentralized, or via remote services - various options for increasing productivity and reducing TCO considerably.
Modular DCS, SCADA, and MES solutions are part of our offer with different graphical configuration tools – either integrated directly in SIMATIC PCS 7 or using WinCC flexible. This enables the efficient parameterization of field devices and set-up of electrical components. The benefits of an automation and visualization system are to handle the measurements and clearly visualize these process values. That includes messages, alarms, trend analyses and reports for preventive or condition-based maintenance as well as the integration of compressors, gasifiers, safety and energy management concepts.
Siemens offers a broad portfolio of medium- and low-voltage components including power monitoring. Connecting them to the process control system, the world’s largest installed fieldbus PROFIBUS, provides universal integration in the electrical infrastructure and in communications.
The best way to ensure highest plant availability and efficiency is to keep track of all relevant processes at all times and to manage the plant as a whole. To ensure just this, we provide so-called MAV concepts over the entire lifecycle as well as efficient and user-friendly systems for plant operation and monitoring.
