ZINKPOWER is one of the world’s leading galvanizing companies. From the smallest screw to entire steel girders, any parts can be hot-dip galvanized and thus refined with corrosion protection at the highest level. ZINKPOWER is represented by 45 companies in 12 countries worldwide. The company philosophy includes a maximum of quality and customer satisfaction, but also environmental protection and sustainability. ZINKPOWER thinks green. The company proves that with Green Dip Galvanizing and now with the upgraded plan in Vorchdorf (Austria), where CO2 is sustainably reduced thanks to photovoltaics and the neoom energy storage.
At the plant in Vorchdorf, in addition to small parts galvanizing in the normal temperature process, classic hot-dip galvanizing is also offered as corrosion protection for steel and metal parts. The considerable electricity consumption of the plant is to be generated in the future with the help of a photovoltaic system on the roof, i.e. directly on site, in order to sustainably reduce CO₂ emissions. An energy storage system will also be used to compensate for power peaks and reduce the load on the power grid.
A photovoltaic system with 390 kWp was installed on the roof of the building. This PV system is expected to generate around 350,000 kWh per year. This corresponds to 17.5% of the annual electricity consumption at this location and thus a significant reduction of the running electricity costs.
Largest power storage
in the grid of "Energie AG Upper Austria"
In addition, a neoom BLOKK energy storage system was installed, which primarily has the task of handling power peaks. The storage unit offers a capacity of 398 kWh at a power of 300 kW. Surplus electricity from the photovoltaic system is stored and accessed at the appropriate time. This reduces the load on the electricity grid and results in a sustainable reduction in electricity costs for the customer. This neoom BLOKK with almost 400 kWh is currently the largest electricity storage unit in the grid of “Energie AG Oberösterreich”!

Intuitive power distribution managed by NTUITY
The energy flow is analysed and controlled by the intuitive NTUITY energy management platform using artificial intelligence. NTUITY is the Software as a Service solution for decentralised and predictive energy management to reduce maintenance and energy costs and increase operational reliability. The platform guarantees that there are no unnecessary power peaks and that self-generated energy is used optimally.
Energy Management Platform
The NTUITY platform connects any amount of locations, measures and controls all devices and informs and alerts their users. That way, the energy flow can be controlled optimally in order to securely provide energy in the right quantity to the customer at the right time.
