SIPOS Aktorik will display its comprehensive product range and confirm its capabilities providing actuation support for the power industry at Russia Power 2014. The actuator manufacturer, which has local representation in Moscow, will promote expertise that extends from initial consultation through to commissioning and maintenance. Total actuation support with high level technical input is provided for both new power plant constructions and refurbishments.
Among the products promoted will be the SIPOS 5 HiMod – the latest and highest specification electric actuator to be developed by the specialist manufacturer. Designed to provide high precision under continuous duty operation, the actuator incorporates a high resolution encoder. This allows delivery of repeatable drive shaft position accuracy to less than 0.2%.
Recent international contracts include more than 100 SIPOS 5 HiMod electric actuators ordered as part of the latest modernisation program for the Prunéřov Power Station. The plant is the largest coal-fired power station complex in the Czech Republic; it is also the region’s newest fossil fuel powered station. The modernisation scheme designed to increase unit capacity from 210MW to 250MW has benefitted from improvements by SIPOS to the valve and control systems.
