VDL Parree tackles reactive power
“Sustainability is both the pursuing of a higher operating efficiency and exploiting the opportunities for a better environment and increased welfare for employees and the society. By installing a capacitor bank, we increase our operating efficiency and avoid unnecessary losses due to complications such as the development of heat within the installation. Besides that, additional electrical capacity for future extensions will become available in the installation.” - Ronald Engelen, company director at VDL Parree, Sevenum.
✓ Enhance efficiency
✓ Increase capacity
It all starts and ends with quality
Unnecessary costs through reactive power
Less costs, more capacity
“After the Power Quality measurements and the advice of HyTEPS we decided to address the reactive power consumption. We followed HyTEPS’s advice and opted for a 300kVAr capacitor bank, including protection against harmonics. Installation of the bank has resulted in an increase in our operating efficiency and the dodging of unnecessary losses through heat generation. In addition, there is additional capacity available for possible expansion in the future.”
“Only one year after purchasing the HyTEPS capacitor bank, we can already happily state that our investment almost payed for itself. Since its installation, we never had to deal with a ‘reactive power fine’ again."
