The Bosch Thermotechnology press conference reviewed: Greater efficiency in the large systems business
The International Press Conference of the Bosch Thermotechnology Division took place in September. ‘Energy-efficiency in the industrial and large systems segment’ was the theme of discussion at the event, and Bosch Thermotechnology presented an overall view of their activities in this field.
‘On a global scale, the industrial sector is responsible for almost one third of all power consumed and the corresponding CO2 emissions. If the best available technologies were installed, industrial power consumption could be reduced by 20 to 30 %’, emphasised Thomas Bauer, member of the divisional board of Bosch Thermotechnology. The company is ideally positioned in the global market for large thermotechnological systems* and has the required technologies:
- Industrial boilers as shell boilers for up to 38 megawatts or 55 tonnes of steam per hour
- Water tube boilers up to a maximum steam output of 220 tonnes per hour
- Heat pumps with an output of 4.8 megawatts
- Large solar thermal plants with collector areas of up to 10 000 square metres
- Ventilation and cooling systems with airflow rates of up to 165 000 cubic metres per hour
- Combined heat and power units: as CHP systems with power ratings of up to 2 145 kW (electrical) and as ready-to-install modules rated from 19 to 400 kW (electrical)
- ORC systems for waste heat power generation with ratings from 40 to 375 kW (electrical)
- In addition to the actual products, Bosch Thermotechnology also offers ideally optimised ancillary modules for the creation of complete systems, for instance heat storage modules or modules for wastewater disposal in the industrial bolier sector
The constant optimisation of existing solutions and the development of new solutions for efficient power generation is a key priority at Bosch Thermotechnology. One example from the large systems segment is the range of ORC systems for waste heat power generation currently available on the market. An important target for future developments is the combination of different technologies and systems from a single provider and, in turn, the more efficient provision of energy. This involves, for example, the optimum integration of large industrial boilers and CHP systems. With its sales and service network, long-established collaboration with planners and plant engineers and the worldwide presence of the Bosch Group, Bosch Thermotechnology is ideally positioned and networked to serve a global market.
