Photo 14 | JST control center desks: The consistent line of the overall concept was also retained in the choice of materials for the Stratos X 11 OperatorDesks- in this case back panels in acoustic design.
Photo 15 | JST Control Desks: Another special feature of Stratos OperatorDesks: Behind the inspection flaps are generously proportioned, illuminated supply rooms that offer sufficient space for technology and large quantities of cables.

Photo 19 | JST large screen display wall cladding: In the InfraLeuna central control center, the cladding of the large display wall - here equipped with eight 46-inch displays with extra-slim frames - not only reduces the noise level in the control room but also offers additional storage space thanks to the multifunctional equipment with hinged doors.
Photo 20 | JST QuickOut mounting system: The QuickOut mounting system offers perfect service accessibility - even for displayslocated in the middle of a video wall. By applying light pressure to the outer edges of the display, each individual display slides forward (quick-out) to provide access to rear connections and technical components in case of inspection.
Photo 21 | JST planning: The air-conditioning concept developed by JST also extends into the inspection room behind the large display screen - here, clearly visible: the exhaust air ducts.
Photo 22 | JST climate concept: Well thought-out down to the last detail and a visually successful solution: pleasantly cool air flows silently through the source air outlets in the display wall cladding . Special advantage for the employees: Unpleasant side effects, such as those caused by drafts, are eliminated.
Photo 23 | JST planning concept: The special functional ceiling offers several advantages: Not only lighting and acoustic specifications were integrated here. In addition, warm air is extracted through the recessed ventilation grilles in order to ensure a continuously pleasant climate in the control room.

New central control center for InfraLeuna
“You concentrate on your core business, we design and develop the framework for your production.” With this company philosophy, InfraLeuna GmbH – the operator of the infrastructure facilities at the Leuna chemical site – makes every effort to provide its customers at the Leuna chemical site with all the necessary services at reasonable prices and in high quality. This also includes the realisation of extensive modernisation work. This includes the installation of a new central control center. InfraLeuna was supported in this construction project by specialists from JST – Jungmann Systemtechnik®.
A control center has rarely received so much attention in the press. Because German Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel personally gave the starting signal for the official commissioning. Indeed, the impressive result of the cooperation between the JST experts and InfraLeuna’s specialists is truly impressive.
Chancellor gave the official starting signal
A modern measurement control room has been created in a former water tower, which enables the proactivecontrol of the operating facilities for energy and water supply and water disposal from a central location. InfraLeuna supplies the chemical firms on the site with energy and steam via a nationwide pipeline network. Whereas in the past, numerous decentralised control centers were responsible for monitoring and controlling the plants required for this, the company is now relying on the positive effects of a central control centeras an automation node for energy and water at the Leuna chemical site.
An unprecedented award in the history of JST: Federal Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel symbolically handed over the control room to the users of InfraLeuna after her speech on the occasion of the ceremony “100 years of the Leuna chemical site”, here represented among others by Managing Director Dr. Christof Günther (left, standing)
"We operate on the open heart here"
During the implementation of this project, there were several challenges for the JST control room professionals. For example, the historic water tower, which houses the measurement control room, provides little daylight. The circular architecture of the building required special measures regarding the acoustics. And climate planning also proved to be an exciting task. In addition, InfraLeuna managing director Dr Christof Günther made it clear right at the start of the project: “Gentlemen, we are operating here on the open heart! So it was clear that all construction measures had to be carried out during ongoing operations.
Thanks to the 3D planning commissioned in advance, those responsible for the control center were given an early idea of the subsequent realisation of the construction measures shown here.
Functional planning and concept have convinced
“We were able to convince with a functional planning, with a sophisticated air-conditioning, acoustics and lighting concept,” recalls JST Managing Director Carsten Jungmann. Photorealistic 3D designs visualised these plans. During a reference visit to the control center of JST customer Helmholtz center Berlin, the delegation from Leuna was also able to experience both the ergonomic and technical components of JST equipment in use.

JST-Team delivers "elegant solution
In the meantime, the 50 or so employees who work at InfraLeuna around the central control center have gained initial experience with the new proactive control center. “Technology and handling are convincing. By using MultiConsoling KVM technology, we have found an elegant solution for our requirements,” reports Thomas Räcke, Head of the Energy and Water Division.
Functional planning and concept have convinced employees of technology and ergonomics
Thanks to the JST solution concepts, existing automation systems can now be used conveniently using modern technology . The area manager also mentions ergonomic optimisations for the employees through the new control center furniture and proactive large screens as well as the individually controllable lighting concept as special plus points of the new premises. His conclusion: “The new control center is not only really beautiful to look at but also extremely functional.
