VGB Conference “Maintenance on Power Plants”

The energy transition in Germany has dramatic effects on conventional power plant

 

The energy transition in Germany has dramatic effects on conventional power plants as a result of the massive expansion of renewable energies.

Not only lower full load hours, but also frequent approaches and descents and steep load ramps are new requirements for existing power plants. This is accompanied by an increased lifetime consumption of the components.

At the same time as the revenues that can be achieved on the market are falling steeply, the maintenance budgets are becoming increasingly scarce. Sometimes not even a substance-sustaining maintenance is possible.

The VGB conference in Hamburg should take this unfortunate trend into account and show how the operators react to these challenges.

In two podium discussions – with experts from the energy industry – the topic is deepened.

Aero Enterprise will also attend the conference on March 2nd. At 3.50 pm our CEO Robert Hörmann will give a talk on “Airborne Quality Assurance – Inspection of Rotor Blades with Air Robot”.

We look forward to a stimulating discussion afterwards!

Here you will find the program booklet for the event.

GIZMOtec GmbH – new website

 

New website of our subsidiary GIZMOtec GmbH online

Redundancy board with the name “AutoPilot Manager Kit”

 

Just in time for Christmas our new website of our subsidiary GIZMOtec GmbH went online.

As a sales arm and solution provider around unmanned systems is offered with a first major product, a redundancy board with the name “AutoPilot Manager Kit”.

As a link for the operation of two independently running (different) autopilot on board an autonomous robot (on the air, in the water or on land), a safety switch is installed, which in case of failure of one of the two autopilots (eg by power failure, …) on the second autopilot toggles.

The AP Manager thus provides one of the foundations for the redundancy required by many aviation authorities in Europe for the operation and deployment of commercially used, unmanned systems, in particular for multi-copters.
