Harnessing the power of renewable water in HK

Harnessing the power of renewable water in HK

As the world faces increasing environmental challenges, manufacturers across the world are turning to renewable energies to become more sustainable. Upgrading manufacturing plants and working towards a more environmentally aware future has never been more relevant.

When a HK based water authority approached us to install a renewable energy system as part of their main upgrade works; we knew this was a project we could not refuse.

In collaboration with SPP Pumps, we delivered a complete turnkey solution, including the mechanical supply, electrical control, installation supervision and commissioning of a renewable energy source

The customer informed us that they had previously used pumps as turbines but had experienced problems with synchronous turbine solutions. We knew therefore that we needed to build trust and provide a cost effective solution that delivered a quick return on investment.

Our turnkey solution provided much-needed peace of mind; harmonic mitigation and optimal power generation through changes to in site operational conditions.

The Solution Summary:

  • Mitsubishi A840 75kW Variable Speed Drive DC coupled to a Revcon Regen Unit and passive 75kw Harmonic filter
  • Full panel manufacturer to local specifications
  • Fully automated solution integrated into existing site infrastructure
  • Mechanical equipment specified and supplied from UK
  • Full UK functional witness testing to prove proof of concept

The plant now generates energy, regardless of the site conditions at the a-synchronous turbine (from 1kW to 75kW). There is a <3% harmonic distortion and simple grid synchronisation.

As the world continues to move into a new era of industrial sustainability, projects that harness the power of water will continue to grow and with our Drive Solutions Centre partnership, the team at TAS is ready to meet those challenges head on.
