Automated Solutions for Wind Turbine Production

“We are proud to be part of the German Pavilion at IPF for the first time. Wind energy is facing an unprecedented production ramp-up, without which the energy transition cannot be achieved. In particular, there is a bottleneck in the production of wind turbines.” states Thomas Oetken, Business Development, Broetje-Automation. “The entire team behin the German Pavillon has made an extraordinary job to provide us the perfect place to network with customers, partners and suppliers and to develop new ideas for the future of wind energy.”
