Safe and economical supply of electric power is the basis for reliable and in-time rail operation, especially when taking into account future concepts for higher traction volumes and CO2 reduction.

The SPREPOWER switchgear technologies and the multifunctional SPRECON automation platform serve as optimal solutions for traction power supply — from power plants to rail grids and consumers. Traction power, however, has to follow stricter regulations than usual power utilities do. Here, major challenges for automation and supply systems are direct supply fault effects on rail operation, extreme environmental conditions and increasing cost pressure on rail operation and maintenance.

With SPREPOWER MV-M7, Sprecher Automation provides type-tested 15 kV switchgears which were especially developed for traction power (16.7 Hz). Furthermore, Sprecher engineers have the know-how for projects ranging from electric train pre-heating units to complex substations and distribution stations.

Many rail operators trust in Sprecher solutions regarding various application fields:

  • High, medium and low voltage switchgears
  • Station control in substations, rectifier and converting stations
  • Power plant control for traction power, switching stations for overhead lines and distribution stations
  • Telecontrol for coupling points, switching stations for overhead lines and distribution stations
  • Fault monitoring systems for moving staircases, ticket machines, air conditioning systems etc.
  • Automation technology for electric point heating systems, train pre-heating units, lighting systems etc.

Airports

Airports

Highest possible power supply availability is a major demand at airports. Safety and protection of passengers in airport buildings and on maneuvering areas are of highest priority. Increasing passenger numbers and baggage and cargo volumes demand reliable switchgears and automation systems.

Sophisticated control and protection systems have to guarantee comprehensive monitoring and protection of power systems as well as uninterrupted switching-over to backup systems.

The SPREPOWER switchgears and the innovative SPRECON control and protection platform are technically reliable and cost-effective power supply solutions for airports.
