Rugged Capabilities for any Industry
HBriones S.E., Solcon's partner in Chile, was invited to bid on a Soft Starting solution for a compressor at Planta HPN Concón, a new Nitrogen production plan developed by Indura (Chile).
Indura has been developing these types of projects in Chile and other countries across Latin America, using different starting methods such as DOL, Auto Transformer and Soft Starters. HBriones offered Solcon's technology in order to reduce cost, optimize use of energy and shorten delivery time.
After an internal analysis of this proposal, Indura selected Solcon's highly reliable HRVS-DN (300A, 4.16kV) Medium Voltage Soft Starter solution. The main decision parameter was having a one-source provider of hardware and software for the full required equipment: protection, soft starter and capacitor bank cabinets. In addition, the customer requested remote starting capabilities for the applications.
The project was successfully delivered and commissioned by HBriones and is currently operating smoothly.
Indura, has over 65 years of experience in the production, marketing and development of gases in Latin America. It is part of the American Air Products, a group of global industrial gas companies.
