Intertec: Passively-Cooled Shelters for Remote Equipment in Hot and Arid Climates
| By Intertec
The reliability of electronics equipment is dramatically shortened if it operates in very hot conditions, which is why much electronic equipment incorporates fan cooling. Equipment builders designing for arid climates have always faced considerable environmental protection problems. Traditional cooling techniques require a power supply, which often poses severe difficulties. The problem is growing bigger as the topology of SCADA evolves towards more distributed and unmanned systems, and new solutions are being sought. Although solar cells and DC powered air conditioning techniques are making progress, their relative lack of efficiency, together with the problems of battery lifecycles in hot climates, continues to make environmental protection complicated and expensive.

Fine Tubes & SENER Combine to Work on the Solar Power Plant- Gemasolar
| By Fine Tubes
The solar power plant 'Gemasolar', situated near Seville in Spain uses unique innovations which makes it not only more efficient than other thermoelectric solar plants, but also able to continue producing electricity without sunlight. Fine Tubes has been working with SENER for 4 years developing and producing the corrosion-resistant heat exchanger tubes for the steam generators as well as the high performance tubing that make up the receiver of the Gemasolar central tower.

BlueCielo - Improving Operational Efficiency at RWE
| By BlueCielo ECM Solutions
With almost 60,000 employees supplying energy to over 16 million electricity customers and 7 million gas customers, RWE AG is one of the leading power generation companies in Europe. The company produces energy by regular and brown power stations, as well as nuclear and regenerative power plants. RWE continually works on methods to improve and optimize the efficiency of its new and existing power stations. Optimization is a key aspect in the engineering, design and construction of new and existing power stations. Efficiency is an important factor in the planning of the operations and maintenance of the power stations.

SweetSulf™: The High Pressure Redox Desulfurization Process
| By PROSERNAT
SweetSulf™ Process Description Reaction Sour gas is contacted with an aqueous redox solution which extracts the H2S and converts it into solid elemental sulphur. Gas separation Treated gas, free of H2S, is separated from the redox solution. Solid separation Solid sulphur is filtered under pressure on a cartridge filter which can be regenerated on stream. Re-Oxidation The redox solution is depressurized and re-oxidized by contact with air.
