The #SGSteam assembles the technology of tomorrow
We are all responsible for our environment, whether on a small scale within a team working together or on a large scale living together in the world. As SGS, we are particularly proud of the fact that we contribute to health, prosperity and a liveable environment worldwide with the plants we install, be they plants that produce green hydrogen, modern plant technologies that reduce CO2, power plants that increase Europe's energy independence or prevent a power blackout.
Many of our current projects involve green technology. In other words, we are promoting technologies that bring the environment, science, technology and the economy into harmony.
An insight into our global projects
In Wunsiedel, Bavaria, the #SGSteam was able to contribute to a milestone project in the field of energy transition with the mechanical and electrical assembly of the Silyzer 300, developed by Siemens Energy. CO2-neutral, "green hydrogen" is generated exclusively by renewable energy sources using electrolysis, i.e. the splitting of water into hydrogen and oxygen by means of electricity.
An equally environmentally exciting project is being supported by the #SGSteam in Airvault, France. ThyssenKrupp Polysius commissioned SGS Industrial Services with the mechanical and electrical installation of a new clinker production plant. This new state-of-the-art plant, in the field of cement technology, reduces CO2 emissions by 60 % and will replace two old production lines after commissioning.
In addition, the SGS group was able to take part in one of the most important energy projects in Germany, the LNG (liquefied gas) terminal in Wilhelmshaven. Our colleagues, who carried out the electrotechnical installation, are thereby contributing to more independence from Russian gas.
We were also able to participate in a blackout prevention project in Leipheim, Germany. Siemens Energy will operate a power plant there for short-term grid stabilisation to compensate for voltage fluctuations in the power grid. Another special feature of this plant is that it can be operated completely digitally and remotely, one of the first of its kind in the world.
