The advantage of the presented solution was that in Malmgård’s case, it could be installed directly adjoining the existing transformer. In other words, no special structure was needed for this solution. During installation, the old 100 kVA high voltage line was replaced with a 300 kVA line to handle the necessary demands for brewing beer.
The distribution board has two incoming lines, each fused at 200 A. The board is equipped with Kabeldon IP-system, which means that it can be complemented with additional outgoing groups even during operation.
This is due to the equipment being semi-enclosed in compliance with IP2X and a method of working when the system is energized. In addition to fuse-switches, equipment for current transformer measurement and accessories from the Kabeldon IP system, measurement terminals were also installed.
According to Malmgård’s owner, Count Johan Creutz, the combined investment was quite large and the goal is to get as much out of it as possible.
“That was why we decided on the power solution with a Kabeldon distribution board. It saved money and space because we didn’t have to build a separate structure for power supply. We also received prompt delivery,” says Johan Creutz.
“The power requirements for producing beer are high in that we boil 2,000 liters at a time. The boil kettle has a peak output of about 80 kW. After the boiling process, which is underway for about 24 hours, the beer is fermented for five or six days before being conditioned for three for four weeks in cooling tanks, a process that naturally consumes energy.
Energy is now assured with the help of, among other things, a Kabeldon distribution board.”
“Johan Creutz has realized the benefits of Kabeldon distribution boards,” says ABB’s Anker Paulsen. “The solution is smart, safe and flexible and is suitable for various types of premises, buildings and industries, and in this case for an agricultural estate.”
