Actuator retrofit for Franken 1

SIPOS Aktorik has completed a comprehensive actuator retrofit for E.ON’s German power plant, Franken 1. In just four weeks, 80 pipeline valves were replaced, 120 original actuators were removed and 200 new SIPOS Flash 5 actuators mounted and commissioned.
The 790 MW power plant’s control system is managed by Siemens. SIPOS collaborated closely in the commissioning of complete units, demonstrating its total service support capabilities.
SIPOS reports that retrofit actuation skills for the power sector are particularly important at the current time to reduce carbon footprint and improve competitiveness of plant production. At Franken 1, efficiency was enhanced by 1.5%.
