Power Quality / Maschinenfabrik Reinhausen GmbH Achieves 100% Accreditation from SGS Peru
The MR Power Quality (MR PQ) business unit, located in Erfurt, the capital of the federal state Thuringia in Germany, has been extremely successful in the mining sector for many years with a number of different solutions. In order to officially document the highest supplier qualifications, MR GmbH recently decided to pursue independent third-party certification from SGS Peru. The areas of quality, workplace safety and environmental safety were evaluated and certified. MR GmbH met 100% of the strict criteria and requirements and is now officially certified for the next three years.
“This certification was a challenge, a major achievement for the team, and, naturally, an extremely important step in terms of continuing our growth strategy in the mining sector and meeting the considerable demands of our customers. We are now able to offer our comprehensive solutions for even more tenders,” says Dr. Siegfried Bauer, who, as Administrative Head of PQ, was responsible for coordinating the certification process and also provided all the necessary documentation.
Mining activities involve challenging electrical loads. Whereas, for example, large crushers, shredders, or conveyor belts require an enormous amount of energy with extremely dynamic loads, other equipment requires maximum power quality for continuous, reliable operation. Voltage drops can result in malfunctions or cause damage to equipment.
Given the complexity of mining operations, the power supply necessitates extremely thorough data collection, on-site measurements, simulations, evaluations, and, naturally, a solution concept. The specialists in the Power Quality (PQ) unit at Maschinenfabrik Reinhausen (MR) offer consulting and analysis as well as GRIDCON® products for clean grids and optimal power quality.
