Oil analyses for efficient and reliable electricity generation
VGB PowerTech expand their services with oil laboratory
Additional service rounds off portfolio of the VGB Group comprising supervision of construction and assembly, materials lab and water chemistry as well as engineering consultancy
As of January 2018, VGB PowerTech expand their services for electricity supply with their new oil laboratory. The new oil lab offers all services for oil management with its state-of-the art lab for the analysis of lubricants and insulating oils. These oils are applied in conventional power plants and in plants for renewable energy conversion as well as in industrial plants and plants of the chemical and steel industry.
Safe plant operation and simultaneous cost optimisation is achieved through oil examination and post inhibition, if needed. The avoidance of unnecessary changing of oil is beneficial, both to operators and the environment.
Heiko Fingerholz is head of the VGB Oil Lab. He underlines: “On January 2, 2018, we started with a qualified and experienced team of experts at the new VGB branch in Gelsenkirchen Scholven. Our long-term experience in the examination and assessment of oils is an attractive service for the power industry.“
Christian Ullrich, head of VGB Technical Services, further explains: “With our oil lab, VGB PowerTech rounds off their well-known services with important expertise in power generation. Engineering consultancy, supervision of construction and assembly, materials lab, water chemistry and our new oil lab underline the technical expertise of the VGB Group and are an important component of the portfolio for VGB members and the entire power industry.”
