Replacement of electrical equipment at a Greek leader of fertilizers

Battery chargers, Fertilizers industry

Hellenic Fertilizers – ELFE Greek industrial company asks COMECA to replace its battery chargers.

ELFE is the sole Greek company manufacturing Chemical Fertilizers in Greece. Based in Kavala, the company manufactures fertilizers since 1965.

ELFE has been choosing Westinghouse battery chargers for more than 40 years.

With the purpose of maintaining this high-quality manufacturing as well as the know-how of an globally recognized brand, the company naturally turned to COMECA Power (ex Westinghouse) to replace its existing battery chargers.

COMECA Power, subsidiary of COMECA and specialized in Power Electronics, thus designed and manufactured 120V DC 200Ah regulated chargers from the ALTYS range. The customer also benefitted from COMECA Power’s technical support during the installation phase, performed remotely.

The Altys-type regulated chargers, well-known for their ease of installation, are thyristor-controlled AC/DC converters designed to supply direct current energy. They can be used as battery chargers or as stabilized power supplies. Know more

The customer didn’t have to modify its electrical installation to replace its old chargers, since the one designed by COMECA Power were completely adapted to come in place of  already installed systems.
