Power Distribution

ONE OF THE FIRST SAUER industrial compressors was used to extinguish electrical arcs in electrical substations. Since this sale back in 1956, we have made constant efforts not only to expand and develop our expertise but also to invest it in the compressors themselves. As a result, Sauer is now one of the best-known suppliers for electrical substations – an application requiring safe and reliable operation, taking into account the extreme conditions, encountered. Sauer offers reliable solutions for renewable energies too, for example: the distribution of bio-methane in order to generate electricity.

With its gas tight compressors built according to individual customer specifications, Sauer is one of the forerunners within this sector. Sauer strives to customize as per customers’ individual requirements and fulfil almost every request relevant, to the product.

Electrical substations

Part of a country’s electricity supply network, electrical substations are operated by energy supply companies and are used to change the voltage levels. The optimum voltage is selected according to the level of power, which is to be transmitted and the distances over which the electricity must travel. Electrical substations are in use within national and regional transmission networks (usually in the form of open air facilities) as well as district and local distribution networks (usually in the form of indoor facilities). Transformer stations are the final link in the chain that provides the lower voltage required by consumers.
