Hannover Fair 2009

Control Engineering editorial director David Greenfield, Consulting-Specifying Engineer editor Michael Ivanovich, and Plant Engineering editor Bob Vavra were reporting from Hannover Messe on the new ideas and new technologies from the 2009 event. Also read from Hannover:

- Innovations, energy efficiency

Hannover, German y– TÜV SÜD's exhibit at Hannover Messe focused on the introduction of its newly developed "Energy-Efficient Systems and Installations" certificate. This new certificate adds a key component to the range of energy-efficiency services offered by the company, which documents the safety and quality of new and existing products, systems, and services.
"Plant producers that deliberately focus on energy efficiency when designing their systems will now be able to provide their customers with convincing documentation of their efforts," says Frank Schröter from the Energy Systems Department at TÜV SÜD Industrie Service GmbH in Dresden. "In the certification process, our experts assess the energy efficiency and the extent of potential savings generated by new plants and systems. They compare the current status with the potential savings resulting when the technology in use undergoes optimization."
During this process, the plant's technical components must demonstrate their energy efficiency, and TÜV SÜD's experts also investigate if the plants continue to be energy-efficient in later operation by monitoring a range of operational statuses and modes of operation. The assessment incorporates the technical and economic framework conditions and costs throughout the plant's life cycle. TUV Rheinland appraises, tests and certifies technical equipment and products according to international quality standards and then registers those in compliance.
