Providing answers to the challenges of global warming is particularly acute in Australia, one of the driest continents on earth.
CMG has responded by aligning itself with a number of consultancies to identify solutions that are time and situation-appropriate.
CMG worked with Beca AMEC, a multi-disciplinary engineering consulting practice, to provide a harmonic solution for Coliban Waters Epsom Spring Gully Recycled Water Project.
The Victorian project involves construction of a 14.5km pipeline from Bendigo Water Reclamation Plant in Epsom to Spring Gully Reservoir and the construction of a Recycled Water Factory at Epsom.
More than 4 billion litres of water will be produced annually for use on public gardens, sporting facilities and irrigation in the Bendigo area.
CMG installed 4 x 250 kW 12-pulse drives after this was chosen as an economical and practical solution for the project.
CMG has also proposed the inclusion of passive harmonic filters, active filters and Active Front End drives.
Darren Besanko, CMG’s national product manager – Drives, said the choice to use 12-pulse drives provided advantages which outweighed any of the other solutions offered.
“Our solution provided a method of complying with harmonic standards without the added installation costs, and space, of additional filter/drive components,” he said.
