The Future of Energy Supply
We anticipate an ongoing and accelerating trend towards decentralization of the energy system based on renewable production sites. Energy generation will shift from yesterday’s generation, primarily in high voltage levels, even more to tomorrow’s medium or low voltage levels.
In line with this transition and in combination with the aim to decarbonize the overall energy system, converter system technology will become even more relevant to our future power supply than it is already today.
Connecting sectors which were separated in past and supporting our customers worldwide we help to pave the way into a more sustainable energy landscape.
We are experts in power conversion and today we offer Service Products and Solutions worldwide as well as Customer Specific Solutions such as Build-to-Print or Build-to-Spec at our state-of-the-art lean-production site in Poland.
We support your application needs, whether it is a customized production solution or an aftermarket related solution to maintain or upgrade existing systems.
