Project Success Story

Siemens Limited will deliver advanced power transmission equipment with integrated digital technologies to three steel Digitalized Switchgearmanufacturers in the Jalna MIDC belt, Maharashtra. The three companies are Icon Steel, Geetai Steels, and Gajkesari Steels & Alloys. The installations include 11 bays of state-of-the-art 132 kilovolts (kV) Gas Insulated Switchgears (GIS), which have a modular design and will enable increased efficiency, reduced operational costs, and ensure safe operations even under extreme environmental conditions.  

The Gas Insulated Switchgears will be designed as Sensgear devices, first of its kind digitalized substation products that offer valuable data analytics applications for the transmission industry. These will be manufactured at Siemens’ Aurangabad factory and based on digitalization solutions from Siemens globally. Sensgear devices have a smart and robust IoT gateway, securely transmitting the minimum amount of required information to a cloud-based storage and visualization platform, providing operators with a comprehensive and quick overview about their assets. Through fast and efficient collection, analysis and usage of mass data produced by the Gas Insulated Switchgears in real time, asset-related decisions will be facilitated, resulting in improved performance and optimized operations.

Siemens is committed to drive the energy transition to enable more sustainable, reliable and productive ecosystems through its technologies. With enhanced data analytics, Sensgear devices help its customers improve efficiency and sustainability of assets and operations.
