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.

„ZINKPOWER is constantly setting new standards in environmental protection and sustainability. With the new plant in Vorchdorf, we show how green a galvanizing plant has to be today.“

Customer requirements

  • Reducing the ecological footprint and CO2 emissions
  • Generating electricity on site for even more sustainable production
  • Reduce power peaks
  • Store solar power overproduction and consume it with a time-shift

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.

„No customer requirement is too big for us. In this project, our neoom BLOKK Power House is used for the first time to professionally and safely accommodate the almost 400 kWh power storage. Special thanks to ZINKPOWER for the confidence in our solutions!“
Walter Kreisel, MBA
Founder and CEO | neoom group gmbh

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”!

BLOKK

Store power at a large scale

neoom BLOKK energy storage is a complete system consisting of battery storage and intelligent load management software.

neoom BLOKK Power House

The mobile commercial energy storage
Since every square metre is valuable, the 398 kWh capacity of the energy storage system was housed in a separate concrete building of around 15m2. We call it the neoom BLOKK Power House. Thanks to the mobile construction the BLOKK Power House can even be moved to a different location and already complies with the OIB 2019 fire safety regulations.
„In order not to use up valuable space in the building, we have created a new space outside where all the electricity storage is located. The neoom BLOKK Power House is the ideal solution for the customer.“

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.

NTUITY

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.

Customer benefits

  • CO2 savings of 87.6 tons per year
  • Amortization in 10 years with about 10% return
  • Energy storage manages power peaks
  • Self-optimizing energy management
