Sixth solar power plant has been installed and commissioned

According to the plan, sixth solar power plant at UC was recently installed and commissioned.

Sixth solar power plant is the smallest so far and it covers a roof area of 240 m² and consists of 72 panels. The total power of the power plant is 39 KWp AC, while the projected annual production is around 54 MWh.

Today, a total of 4767 m² of roof area is covered by as many as 2090 solar panels, which results in a total power of 813 KWp AC and a projected annual production of 2369 MWh. A detailed overview of all power plants is available in the image below:

First HL-LHC jacks tested and validated at CERN

All jacks of batch #1, produced by UNIOR components d.o.o, have been validated and accepted after the Site Acceptance Tests carried out at CERN. The green light to proceed with the manufacturing of pre-series batch #2 has already been given to UNIOR Components.

Machining of batch #2 parts is expected to be completed by beginning of March, followed by the full assembly and the Factory Acceptance Tests. These new jacks are expected to be delivered to CERN in early May.

UNIOR Components officially receives the “prosumer” status

On 18.11.2022. UNIOR Components has officially obtained the status of “prosumer” of electrical energy produced by its solar power plants “UC A” and “UC B”  whose total installed capacity is 555 kWh. This is the final step of the project, the investment of which started back in 2021.

UNIOR Components hereby officially became one of the first companies in the region that, after installing significant capacities in the production of electricity from renewable sources, acquired the status of “prosumer” from EPS (Elektro Privreda Srbije).  Also, according to the current plan, in 2023, 30-40% of electricity will be produced by solar panels.

In order to increase competitiveness on the global market, but also bearing in mind the volatility of the energy market, as well as contributing to the global goals of sustainable development, UNIOR Components will continue to invest in its capacities for the production of electricity.

Ivan Milićević, the manager of this project at UC, says the following for our website:

This is a big step forward in the realization of this project, but we are not stopping here. We will try to install more solar panels up to the total approved power of 900KW in the coming period. We expect the installed capacity to reduce Unior Components’ electricity costs, but also to contribute as much as we can to the efforts of state institutions to reduce the import of energy. In other words, we want to be responsible both for the business of the company and for the state of Serbia.

Expansion of solar power plant “UC B”

Additional capacity of 138 kWp was recently added to the existing solar power plant “UC B”.  Namely, 34 monocrystalline panels with a power of 375 Wp, manufactured by Canadian Solar and 306 monocrystalline panels with a power of 410 Wp, manufactured by Luxor Solar are added to existing network.

Today,  the total capacity of the solar power plants “UC A” + “UC B” is 638.99 kWp, which enables the company to produce more than 30% of the consumed electricity from its own sources.

In the future, UNIOR Components plans to further expand the production of electricity from renewable sources.

New equipment launched in renovated facility for cutting and sandblasting

UNIOR Components is well known as a company that reinvests a significant part of its income in the modernization of its production facility.

Among other things, the complete facility for gas cutting and sandblasting of welded constructions was renovated this year. A new Omnicut 4600 G gas and plasma cutting machine (Maximum size of cutting pieces 2000 x 6000) was purchased, as well as a new SciTeX Cabilux Series sandblasting equipment, which ensures a significantly better quality of sandblasting process of the welded structures.

Also, the renovation process included a complete reconstruction of the interior, so that now the new gas cutting machine and the new sandblaster are located in the same building and which provides significantly leaner production process of welded constructions. In addition to the interior, the entire roof was also renovated, on which solar panels will be installed in the coming period as part of the “UC B” solar power plant.

Overall, this investment is expected to result in faster production processes and increased customer satisfaction of the welded construction and machining program.

 

Technical characteristics of gas cutting machine OMNICUT 4600 G:

– Working length: 6000mm

– Working width: 2000mm

– Material thickness: 2-40mm for plasma cutting, and up to 200mm for Oxy Fuel cutting
