Comsys and Electronic Power Design have entered into a strategic co-operation

EPD is an US-based company with headquarter in Houston Texas with focus on electrical systems Integration. EPD offers engineering services, design, programming (variable speed drives and programmable logic controls), commissioning and field maintenance of all types of electronics equipment and controls. Their principal solutions consist of units of AC and DC variable speed (VSDs), AC and DC motors, motor controls centers, switchboards and generators.

Comsys, with headquarters in Sweden, is a manufacturer of its own developed line of Active Filters (ADF). Comsys, being a technology leader within power quality, will supply products, components and know-how to EPD.

The cooperation will build on the respective companies’ strengths. Comsys will supply products and components to EPD. EPD will integrate Comsys products into new and existing solutions, to meet new power quality standards and demands. EPD will be able to seek new market segments having a more complete portfolio for solar, wind, data centers and steel plants.

“We see this as a very strategic cooperation as EPD has over 20 years of experience within offshore and marine applications. It’s evident that the experience EPD holds will help Comsys to continue with it’s leading position within power quality and Comsys will support EPD to reach new market segments”. says Marcus Löfgren, CEO Comsys AB.

“Comsys and EPD are a perfect fit from marketing and product-perspective. We are very excited about the opportunities offered in this agreement”, says Jonas Persson, Country Manager North America, Comsys AB.

In October we inaugurated the assembly line for ADF P300 series in the city of Shantou, Guangdong province. As the sales volume of the ADF P300 series is increasing rapidly it is essential for us to be able to meet local demand in China. The capacity of the factory is prepared to handle both domestic market as well as East Asia, says Dennis Magnusson, Supply chain Manager at Comsys. It will also give us the possibility supply the ADF P300 product line with local adaptation for the Chinese market on competitive terms. Zhongyeda is also acting as the service and repair center for ADF in East Asia.

2011 Comsys partnered up with Zhongyeda who has nationwide sales and service coverage with its 90 offices in China. “The seminar was very well organized by the Zhongyeda branch office in Beijing and we immediately received positive response and had very good discussions” says CEO of Comsys, Marcus Löfgren who attended the seminar together with Vice Chairman of Zhongyeda group, Jason Wu.

 

Comsys delivers their ADF technology to the offshore wind DanTysk. The solution contains one cluster of 12 water cooled ADF STATCOMs for high performance in a demanding environment in the North Sea. The main purpose of the ADF STATCOMs are to compensate for reactive power under normal operating conditions. The ADF STATCOMs are also prepared to boost power in an inrush mode to support the generators if the connection to shore would fail. The substation is the connection point for 80 wind turbines and each turbin is able to produce 3,6 MW.

 

The STATCOMs compensate the 33 kV grid via a step-up transformer. The units are installed in groups of four, each forming a STATCOM of 1.5 MVAr. Total installed power is 6 MVAr.  

This project is yet another confirmation that the ADF technology is a flexible and extremely reliable solution able to handle very demanding applications such as DanTysk.
