Our service

Peak demand optimisation is worthwhile

Even in deregulated electricity markets, peak power is very expensive. Our optimisation systems allow cost reductions of up to 30%. You can see the results in black and white on each electricity invoice you get – from the very first day of installation.

A large number of customers from the restaurant business and the food industry, as well as organisations such as retirement homes, hospitals, foundries and metals refiners – to name but a few – have confidence in our solutions. Does the connected load of a production building give you something of a headache? Well, if you come to Xamax, you have come to the right address, because with our systems, expensive network reinforcements are often redundant and grid connection costs can be reduced.


Energy data logging creates transparency

Does your company’s finance director, the Swiss Cleantech agency (act) or the Energy Agency of the Swiss Private Sector (EnAW) adviser require transparent and up-to-date energy data? Has your company switched to energy management in line with ISO 50 001? Our systems easily cope with all of the above-mentioned requirements. Our energy data collection system comprehensively monitors, manages and evaluates the energy flows in your company. In this way, we create transparency in your company’s electricity, gas, water or compressed air consumption – and we integrate existing energy meters into our system.


Reactive power compensation? We know all about it

All electromagnetic devices require reactive power, which places a load on the grid and so, beyond a certain point, is subject to charges. Correctly sized reactive power compensation equipment costs little to maintain and is very reliable. The investment will soon be paid for by the absence of reactive power charges. Xamax has been planning, building and delivering turnkey compensation equipment for over 70 years. We also specialise in servicing and maintaining other manufacturers’ equipment.


Own-use optimisation for photovoltaic equipment

Increasingly decentralised energy production using photovoltaic equipment calls for smart solutions for power storage and own-use optimisation. Our systems are able to increase own-use up to 100% and thereby reduce the load on the grid.


Control pooling – the virtual power plant solution

In cooperation with Alpiq, we are able to pool the switchable loads and the power generating units of our customers. Our power plant solution offers you an ideal tool that you can use to further optimise your energy costs. In this way, we have already taken numerous customers with a current capacity of over 50 MW into the balancing energy market and obtained attractive earnings for them.

A clear success factor in this process is our secure and reliable communications technology. As a Xamax customer, you benefit from industrially tested concepts and technologies that are operationally absolutely secure – with the customer data hosted in Switzerland.


Energy business know-how

Electricity market, balancing energy, demand response, or network and energy tariffs – finding your way round the byways of the energy business is not always easy. Our energy experts use their extensive knowledge and skills to help you keep track of what is going on. We analyse your individual supply situation holistically and suggest solutions that are guaranteed to improve your cost situation. These may be straightforward electricity tariff comparisons, advice on electricity supply, management strategies for heat storage or complete planning concepts, so that you get maximum benefit from marketing your flexibility – whether for major power-consuming equipment, cogeneration units or emergency backup generators.


Xamax – Energy management is our world

In a time of energy transition, and with concepts such as power efficiency, virtual power plants or smart grids in everyday use, it is hard to identify and implement the correct energy management action to take. Companies regularly commission studies to find their energy-saving potential, but the knowledge gained thereby is seldom implemented. This is because the proposed solutions are very often technically too complex – or it takes too long to amortise the investment in them.
