The effects of the corona virus pandemic, which is now occurring worldwide, have expanded considerably in recent days. We at Deutsche Windtechnik, too, are monitoring the situation very carefully and are constantly adapting our preventive measures to the current circumstances, taking into account the information provided by the authorities, the Robert Koch Institute and other institutions.

Effective March 15 2020 Deutsche Windtechnik became WSTECH’s sole and exclusive service provider for commissioning and service of battery storage and converters on all WSTECH’s units installed in wind and solar farms at their 31 locations across the US. The proven technical capabilities and excellent service provided by Deutsche Windtechnik are the basis for this valuable partnership with WSTECH.
Expanding capabilities and capacity together
“This partnership is a perfect symbiotic relationship and combines very deep technical knowledge on both sides. The cooperation will help increase our number of qualified staff at specific US-regions being able to offer higher availability which finally results in a more efficient performance and customer satisfaction.” - Carsten Buhlrich, CFO / Managing Director, WSTECH
WSTECH’s converter and battery charging technologies, employee skill set and tooling that requires advanced electrical troubleshooting capabilities are where the two industries draw a parallel. The competency of the Deutsche Windtechnik service technicians will require limited but specialized training to become certified on the WSTECH product line.
Melf Lorenzen, CEO, Deutsche Windtechnik Inc., sees great potential in this partnership: “We are grateful for this opportunity to enter into a fast growing market of battery storage together with WSTECH. Drawing the synergies from our O&M competency with their battery storage technology will create a more holistic approach for us to better support renewable energy projects and ultimately help lowering the cost of energy.”
