Mavel Srl has selected Sipos Aktorik’s actuators to aid water management at Pont-Saint-Martin, in the Aosta Valley, Italy. End-user Compagnie Valdôtaine des Eaux Compagnie, the region’s primary producer of hydroelectric power, required a solution to protect tanks and pipes during storm and flood conditions. A key reason for the selection of Sipos 5 Flash technology was the flexibility afforded by the company’s single-phase actuation solution. The low current technology adopted by Sipos means there are no restrictions on cable length. As a result, the position of the solar system is independent of the actuator mounting. Complete scope for selection of the best solar site is therefore provided and, in the Aosta Valley application, remote locations include woodland settings.
