In the realisation of heat 11 customer projects, there is no getting around Lars Holtmann: Together with his employees and external service partners, he is proverbial the “control center” at heat 11 and as manager of the EMSR department responsible for all questions concerning the subjects Electrical equipment, technology for measuring, control and regulation.
“The requirements to the electric switch panels in the field of heat transfer have steadily increased in recent years.”, said Holtmann.With his team, he designs not only simple switch panels that are housed in a control cabinet in most cases, but also complexe control systems – e. g. in power plant environment – are part of his daily business. “The trends lead to the complexe SPS solutions with different BUS connections and corresponding visualization of the entire plant.” continued Holtmann. The BUS communication is e. g. via MODBUS, PROFIBUS or ETHERNET.
Not only the basic functions of a plant, but also many more requirements can be realized today by means of modern control technology. “We improve increasingly also the energy efficiency of our plants by the control and switch panel.” reported Holtmann. Latest example is the integration of extremely energy-efficient pumps in a complexe control plant having led to a significant savings in power consumption, said Holtmann.
The plannings and documentations are implemented continuously on modern CAD working places with the latest EPLAN software. “There is no other way to meet the customer requirements nowadays.” is the conclusion of Holtmann. At the beginning of his activity in the electrical engineering this was not yet the case – he can look back on 15 years of professional experience in mechanical engineering and construction.
