SIPOS’ pivotal role at Polish WTP


SIPOS Aktorik’s actuation technology plays a pivotal role in a two million Euro modernisation programme at Rakowice Water Treatment Plant (WTP) in Poland.

As a result of the upgrade, the station, supported by SIPOS’ electric actuators, will be designed to be maintenance-free. A complete overhaul of actuation technology at the plant has resulted in a suite of SIPOS actuators replacing all existing valve control devices. Due to the scale of the scheme, with just under 100 drives, SIPOS PROFIBUS DP-enabled actuators were selected to manage the valve control automation processes. A primary reason for the adoption of SIPOS’ actuators was the device’s integrated frequency converter which enables the actuator speed to be adjusted in situ to precisely meet the scheme’s process requirements. The commissioning of the actuator installation was managed by SIPOS’ local partner, AUMA Poland.
