Innovative technologies for power stations Intelligent and reliable solutions for efficient processes

With the steady growth of storage systems and decentralized generators, the change in our power generation landscape confronts us with the task of using a power supply that is both safe and clean at the same time. Conventional power stations are increasingly being replaced by renewable energy sources. The reasons behind this are climate change and other environmental sustainability issues. Nonetheless, many types of power stations have yet to be completely eliminated from our power generation landscape. The required network of different power plant technologies needs efficient and reliable processes.

Hydroelectric power generation has proven itself as renewable, although it still uses conventional technologies. This is what makes hydroelectric power very interesting in the context of a sustainable future. We would like to show you our products and solutions using hydroelectric power plants as an example. Please also take a look at the references. Our solutions function reliably even under extreme environmental conditions. They are specifically designed to meet the requirements of power stations. Connection and coding solutions ensure more efficient processes in power stations. Communication solutions ensure secure data transmission in accordance with IEC 61850 or PROFIBUS requirements.

Contact us so we can achieve your individual requirements together.

A stable power grid requires solutions that react intelligently and work reliably, also during unfavorable conditions. With decades of experience and innovative technologies, we ensure the superior availability of your system – now and in the future.

Different power supplies in the environment of a plant

High system availability

System availability as an important key figure determines the effectiveness of your power station. Low values can result from unplanned downtime or other causes and negatively impact your costs.

Ensure the consistently high availability of your system and prevent unplanned failures. Phoenix Contact’s test systems, power supplies, control systems, and remote control systems meet the highest quality standards and therefore ensure optimal system availability.

Smooth operation

With vast quantities of cables, wires, and other electronic or electromechanical components, it is often difficult to keep track of everything, even in power stations. Proper and traceable identification is therefore essential.

Proper identification helps to avoid operating errors. Ensure operations run smoothly with easy installation and maintenance. Our marking systems meet every demand and are particularly well-suited for power station maintenance.
