Energy-intensive industries face an increasingly demanding combination of multiple requirements. In addition to compliance with legal requirements and the associated reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, the focus is also on reducing primary energy use in order to achieve savings. Furthermore, the simplification and stabilisation of (production) processes is of great importance in order to increase productivity and quality.
EPOC® – Energy & Production Optimisation Control
EPOC® as an energy optimisation product helps your plant to meet these requirements and makes it fit for the future. You benefit from the customised combination of an effective, standardised basis, sund customising and streamlined implementation.
EPOC® combines many years of experience and builds on well-founded know-how from the fields of process engineering, control engineering and digitalisation. The EPOC® is based on the EPOC®Suite, on which six different modules are used as required. These combinable modules make it possible to bring the performance of the individual configuration given at each site to a significantly improved level. As part of the customised implementation, we ensure that your specific technological-technical and organisational requirements are taken into account.
With EPOC® you benefit from a clearly plannable and structured value proposition. As part of the potential study, we identify your case-specific optimisation levers and map your financial, technical and environmental benefits from an EPOC® optimisation. We then implement your EPOC® and take care of the necessary customising. After successful commissioning, we service and optimise your EPOC® on an ongoing basis to ensure smooth operation.
Procedure of an EPOC® project
In principle, it is possible to invest in the EPOC® Suite or to choose a rental solution with a usage agreement (performance contract). In both cases, the implementation is compliant with the EU taxonomy (Regulation (EU) 2020/852). The contributions according to the environmental objectives (Article 9 of said Regulation) are presented.
Together we design your EPOC® project in three phases.
“The potential study with tests, data analysis and interpretation prepared by VOIGT+WIPP Engineers showed several possible variants for the upgrading and optimization of our plant. In constructive discussions with the experts from VOIGT+WIPP, we decided on a package of measures consisting of renewal of the bark fuel supply, flue gas recirculation and SNCR system. The on-time achievement of the ambitious target despite COVID-19 restrictions testifies to the professional work of all involved. The result of the modernization project is convincing: the plant operation for the next decades is secured and the legal emission limits could be undercut.”
