Energy management

The process heat (specific heat) from the production machines is transferred to a storage system and distributed via a heat/cold convector or converted into cold air in the summer.
New transformer station for building 6. At low voltage, our cable lengths result in an up to 2% capacity loss. However, power is saved by installing the transformer station directly at the consumer.
