ENERGY & RECYCLING

INDUSTRY SOLUTION ENERGY & RECYCLING

The growing importance of climate protection in the face of the finiteness of fossil and nuclear resources is leading to a gradual shift from the conventional supply of nuclear and coal power energy toward renewable sources, such as wind or solar power. At the same time, the production of chemical products made of natural gas and crude oil in the international context are still highly important. The companies in the energy and recycling industry have some decisive factors of success in common:

  • High reliability of the materials used
  • High process security during production
  • High level of efficiency along the value creation chain
  • Extensive service in complex plant projects

Planners and operators from the energy and recycling segments across the world rely on cost-efficient, productivity-improving machining tools by WIKUS.

Petrochemicals

In the petrochemical sector, mineral oils are frequently mixed with a wide variety of materials in refineries. In the production process, steels like duplex steel and Ni-based alloys play an important role due to their corrosion-resistance and welding capabilities; at the same time, machining these steels poses a huge challenge.

WIKUS sawing tools stand out thanks to their high performance capability for these applications and reproducible high quality; at the same time, you profit from the high delivery performance and an excellent price-performance ratio.

Renewable energies / offshore

Photovoltaic, wind energy or hydropower are classic sources of renewable energy. The materials used are subject to some demanding processing requirements; for instance, offshore wind turbines need to withstand extreme climatic conditions, machining solar cells made of silicon requires a lot of know-how and special sawing tools.

Planning and implementing processes in the plant engineering field requires closely meshed supplier processes, and quality and time-critical delivery situations need to be managed efficiently.

  • Suppliers must be able to present standards/certifications
  • Handling quality assurance agreements

WIKUS provides high-tech tools that can be used with a variety of materials and offer very high performance with respect to the cutting performance.

  • Rotor blades
  • Turbine shafts
  • Turrets
  • Cogs
  • Drive components
  • Cooling systems
  • Mono and multi-crystalline
  • Silicon ingots
