Generating power for the world market: Industrial generator Sigentics M

(PresseBox) (München, )
Highly flexible scope for adjustment to specific applications
40 years of trouble-free operation due to high-quality, robust design
Outstanding efficiency of up to 98.4 percent
Reduced project execution times due to short delivery periods and simple, modular configuration

As part of its extensive portfolio of generators serving the world market, the Sigentics M from Siemens comes in shaft heights of 710 and 800 and provides the ideal solution no matter what the application. Not only does the generator itself offer outstanding flexibility in terms of electric parameters, cooling method and design to precisely suit the relevant application, but this adaptability also extends to the relevant documentation. With an efficiency level of up to 98.4 percent, the Sigentics M provides the greatest possible energy yield and so makes a major contribution to sustainability. Extremely short delivery periods, a simple modular configuration, simplified transport logistics and plant integration due to minimized dimensions and weights all help to speed up project execution time. With its high-quality, robust design, the industrial generator offers an impressive service life of over 40 years. Because it complies with international, national and industry-specific certification requirements, the Sigentics M qualifies for use anywhere around the world. Its fields of application range from power generation through marine engineering to various uses in the oil and gas industry.

Use of the finite element method, 3D simulation and precise rotor alignment enable the perfect interaction between rigidity and damping, which in conjunction with the proven insulation system Micalastic accounts for the extremely long service life of the generator. The comprehensive possibilities offered by Condition Monitoring enable the use of predictive maintenance concepts to prevent unscheduled outages. Sigentics M is also exceptionally maintenance-friendly due to design features such as an easily accessible rectifier bridge. A global service network offering a presence in 190 countries and a hotline operating around the clock mean that users can rely on a fast, flexible response in case of emergency. A total of 400 workshops spread over 45 countries are equipped to provide support should an emergency situation arise.

The fields of application are varied: Sigentics M generators can be used as mini power stations for distributed power generation or as standby power units in hospitals, airports or similar. In the world of marine engineering, this industrial generator takes care of minimized emissions in diesel-electric ships, cuts costs due to low fuel consumption and so contributes towards ecological sustainability. At the same time, the modular concept of the generator and its compact dimensions enable custom‑tailored configurations to fit a whole range of applications. Even under the most extreme conditions such as those encountered in the oil and gas industry, Sigentics M generators offer the assurance of trouble-free operation, outstanding reliability and system availability for all kinds of offshore power generation.
