Siemens Limited will deliver advanced power transmission equipment with integrated digital technologies to steel manufacturers from Jalna MIDC belt, Maharashtra, namely, Icon Steel, Geetai Steels and Gajkesari Steels & Alloys. The installation includes 11 bays of state-of-the-art 132 kilovolts (kV) Gas Insulated Switchgears (GIS) which have a modular design and will enable increased efficiency, reduced operational costs and ensure safe operations even under extreme environmental conditions.
The Gas Insulated Switchgears will be designed as Sensgear devices, first of its kind digitalized substation products that offer valuable data analytics applications for the transmission industry, manufactured at Siemens’ Aurangabad Factory and based on digitalization solution from Siemens globally. Sensgear devices have a smart and robust IoT gateway securely transmitting the minimum amount of required information to a cloud-based storage and visualization platform, providing operators with a comprehensive and quick overview about their assets. Through fast and efficient collection, analysis and usage of mass data produced by the Gas Insulated Switchgears in real time, asset related decisions will be facilitated resulting in improved performance and optimized operations.
