June 2020 – Another satisfied customer! EPD recently completed a SIVACON S8 Motor Control Center (MCC) lineup for a multibillion-dollar electrical distributor that has over 700 locations in the U.S.A. This SIVACON S8 MCC lineup will ultimately be used for an aluminum smelting project overseas. As Siemens’ exclusive SIVACON Technology Partner in the U.S.A, we are one of only two North American manufacturers of SIVACON products. Our ability to manufacture these products domestically makes it convenient and cost-effective for American companies that need IEC compatible products. Furthermore, being located domestically enables our clients to easily communicate throughout the process, visit our facilities, and witness test the equipment prior to shipping. This results in faster turnaround, cost-effectiveness, and greater peace of mind for our clients. Manufacturing SIVACON S8 products is just one of the many ways that EPD is committed to serving a wide variety of markets and catering to our clients’ needs.
This SIVACON S8 project is composed of 3 lineups, 2 of which have a 630 amp main horizontal bus and 1 of which is rated at 800 amps. Other project specifications include compatibility with clients’ power supply of 380 volts AC, 50 Hz, and an enclosure Ingress Protection (IP) of 31. These units are unique in that they have an integrated panelboard and a built-in distribution transformer, which allows for a maximally compact design.
IEC 61439-1/2 specification compliant switchgear, switchboards, and MCCs are used worldwide in many mission-critical applications and industries. Its high reliability, safety features, and power-dense design makes it the optimal solution for international applications, as well as domestic ones. Particularly, this is useful for domestic projects that have non-standard voltage ratings or are spatially constrained.
Consider us as your preferred vendor of SIVACON S8 gear for your next upstream, midstream, or downstream O&G project, industrial plant project, or water treatment plant project.
