First SIPOS SEVEN Shipment

SIPOS Aktorik has celebrated the inaugural shipment of the company’s new generation electric actuator. The first SIPOS SEVEN devices off the production line are being dispatched to an ultra-supercritical (USC) coal-fired power plant under construction in Opole, south-west Poland.

The company’s state-of-the-art facility in Altdorf, Germany – which was designed to offer flexibility to expand production, has easily absorbed the new SIPOS SEVEN alongside the established SIPOS 5 electric actuator and other valve control devices, including actuators catering for nuclear power installations.

Around 1,000 SIPOS SEVEN actuators featuring full colour display and multi-functional drive controller have been ordered for the Opole installation. Supported by AUMA Polska, the actuators are being supplied to Alstom who report to the scheme’s main customer, Polska Grupa Energetyczna.

Alstom, a global leader in power generation and transmission, with strong credentials based on innovative and environmentally friendly technologies, is responsible for project management, design and commissioning of units 5 and 6 at the Opole scheme. Unit 5 is due to enter commercial operation in 2018 and unit 6 in 2019. SIPOS actuators will be commissioned across the two 900 MW units that form the basis of the new plant.
