Veltins Brewery chooses sustainable electrification solution from Siemens

New brewery building equipped with Siemens power distribution technology for medium and low voltage
Innovative fluorine gas-free medium-voltage switchgear contributes to greater sustainability
Digitalized low-voltage technology increases safety, efficiency and economy operational
C. & A. Veltins, one among Germany’s largest breweries, has set itself the goal of becoming one among the foremost modern and sustainable breweries in Germany by the time it celebrates its 200th anniversary in 2024. Siemens Smart Infrastructure is supplying technology to make sure the sustainable energy supply of a replacement building at the company’s headquarters within the town of Grevenstein within the Sauerland region, where a replacement plant will enter operation in 2022. The centerpiece is that the new 8DJH 12 blue GIS fluorine gas-free medium-voltage switchgear. It completely eliminates the greenhouse emission sulphur hexafluoride (SF6) also as other fluorine gases. Instead, the switchgear uses the climate-neutral Clean Air insulation gas, which consists exclusively of natural components of the ambient air. The system is supplemented by low-voltage technology with digital measurement and communication functions for safe and efficient power distribution.

“By choosing environmentally friendly, fluorine gas-free switchgear from Siemens we are extending our sustainability principle to the sector of energy supply. This not only guarantees a reliable supply of energy for our new building and plant , but also reduces our carbon footprint and protects the environment,” said Peter Peschmann, technical director at C. & A. Veltins.
“With our blue GIS switchgear, the customer benefits from both cost-effectiveness and excellent environmental compatibility,” said Stephan May, CEO of the Distribution Systems Business Unit at Siemens Smart Infrastructure. “We cash in of gas-insulated switchgear technology, but not use fluorine gases. Instead, we use Clean Air, a climate-neutral insulating gas.”
In the new building at Veltins, Siemens is additionally installing Sivacon S8 low-voltage switchgear with the new 3WA air circuit breakers also because the Sivacon 8PS busbar trunking system, which is significantly more flexible and economical because it replaces conventional cabling. The systems and components have full communication capabilities and are ready to collect precise energy and condition data and transfer it on to energy management and IoT systems for visualization and further analysis. Among other things, this makes it possible to spot potential savings and significantly improve operational energy efficiency.
