Meet our German Business Delegation
The conference is part of a delegation of German wind energy companies visiting the Chicago region from June 19-23. Our delegates are leading innovators in the areas of site assessment/ monitoring, equipment manufacturing, operations and maintenance.

Aactio, together with its partner ScadaMinds of Denmark, handles critical data in the wind industry. Their latest product enables remote monitoring of wind turbines by connecting SCADA systems to the internet. Combined with cloud services and state-of-the-art data security systems, this allows centralized monitoring and reporting of the turbines’ data flow.

Ammonit Measurement GmbH
Accurate and reliable measurements of a prospective site lower the cost of wind energy by reducing uncertainty. Ammonit offers high quality measurement equipment including powerful data loggers, meteorological sensors, and IEC-classified SoDAR and LiDAR devices that guarantee precise site assessment and monitoring for your peace of mind.

KAPP NILES is a global market leader in grinding machines and tools for finishing of gears or profiles. Complementing high-precision metrology makes KAPP NILES the best partner for production solutions. Technologies from KAPP NILES guarantee both precision and cost-effectiveness for the manufacturing of sophisticated components. KAPP NILES enables its customers to bring high precision motion into their products – on land, on water and in the air.

Max Bögl
Max Bögl is the market leader in Germany for hybrid wind towers over 140mHH. Bögl supplies more than 40 different variations of tower types to renowned wind turbine manufacturers, offering hub heights of up to 180 m (590 ft.). A unique perk of the company is that they can combine wind towers with a pumped storage hydroelectric power plant, which allows for wind energy storage flexibility. Max Bögl’s mobile manufacturing plant ensures the ability to produce the wind tower onsite, utilizing local resources.

Multigear GmbH
Multigear is a leading independent gearbox repair and replacement service firm. On average, wind turbine gearboxes have to be refurbished every 8-9 years of operation. Multigear is a reliable partner for gearbox replacements, technical inspection and maintenance, modifications, spare parts management and project consulting.

REWITEC® develops and produces innovative nano- and micro-particle-based lubricant additives for wind turbine applications. REWITEC-treated machinery, gearboxes, and bearings run with reduced friction, reduced temperature and higher reliability and durability due to reduced abrasion and wear – proven over and over again.

RoSch Industrieservice GmbH
A full-cycle service contractor for wind energy maintenance, repair and retrofitting, RoSch optimizes the operation of wind farms. Their highly certified staff (ISO and SCC) is specialized in both mechanical and electrical maintenance, and bundling repair tasks in the most efficient way in order to keep downtime to a minimum. Turbine retrofitting can be more cost-effective than replacing entire systems. RoSch’s careful retrofitting planning keeps older systems on the grid while maximizing energy output.
