Selected Projects

for the World
In 2009, Siemens extended its product
portfolio to deliver high-voltage power
capacitors and capacitor banks to cus
tomers worldwide. These products and
systems fulfill the highest electrical and
mechanical requirements; they are used
forthemost diversified applications and 2

can be operated under the most stringent 1

environmental conditions.
Siemens High Voltage Power Capacitors do
notonly enhance the transmission capacity
orthe network stability, but also contribute
toeconomic growth and enable a signifi-
cant reduction in carbon dioxide emissions.

Power Capacitor Factory

Siemens Power Capacitor factory is located in the

industrial complex in Jundia, Brazil, the largest
production complex of Siemens in Latin America.

History 50 Years of Experience
1959 Laelc starts operations, manufacturing Power Capacitors
forseveral projects, including Itaip HVDC, the first
600kV HVDC of the world in the 80s.
1979 Laelc buys the technology to manufacture internally
2007 Siemens acquires from Laelc the technology to manu
facture power capacitors and capacitor banks.
2009 Siemens Power Capacitor factory starts commercial opera-
Power Capacitor
tion and was awarded its first large HVDC order for India.
Today Siemens Power Capacitor are globally present in several
countries around the world with a product portfolio for
alltypes of application.

requirements, including extremely low temperatures
(like 50C in northern Canada), extremely high
temperatures (like+50C in India), high humidity
(likeinthe rainforests of northern Brazil) and the
mostextreme seismic zones (like in NewZealand).
