 Press Releases

  • Bachmann electronic, industry leader in wind automation solutions, recently strengthened its significant expertise by acquiring a team of 10 wind energy experts. With more than 20 years’ experience in turbine control technology, the new team – located in Rendsburg/Büdelsdorf Germany - will concentrate on the global turbine retrofit market. Their target is to provide turbine Life Time Extention (LTE), optimized efficiency and support wind farms in delivering affordable energy.

    Bachmann retrofitted turbines are now compliant with advancing technical requirements, with increased cyber security and optimized operator safety. The Bachmann M1 automation system offers a wide variety of software components to older turbines. Components such as WTT (Wind Turbine Template), WPS (Wind Power SCADA), SPPC (Smart Power Plant Controller), Condition Monitoring Systems (CMS) and Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) update and standardize technology to meet international standards. Bachmann wind energy customers increase their farm’s efficiency, lower costs and maximize performance. 

     “We are very excited to be joining Bachmann” says Martin von Mutius, head of the new retrofit team, “We want to grant independence to our customers, giving them the most from their turbines. This means durable, long-lasting automation solutions ensuring continuous productivity throughout turbine lifetimes; exactly what Bachmann provides.”

  • Wind professionals gathered recently in Potsdam, Germany, to listen to some of the industry’s best expertise speak at “Profi[t] am Wind IX”. This year’s forum, part of the 28th Wind Energy Days Conference, featured a selection of notable speakers from 10 diverse wind energy organizations. Austria’s wind automation solution providers, Bachmann electronic, hosted the forum, discussing ways of increasing productivity through cross-industry collaboration and partnerships.

    “The Wind Energy Days in Potsdam are really starting to feel like a ‘family meeting’ for the German wind industry – all the major players are there,” says Gabriel Schwanzer, Director of Wind Power at Bachmann, “Whether it’s the technical and political challenges, financing, or ecology, the most critical discussions in wind usually take place in the forums. This was the sixth time Bachmann hosted the ‚Profi[t] am Wind‘ forum, and due to the well selected presentations regarding the current situation in the German wind business we almost ran out of space!”

    Discussion topics from Profi[t) am Wind included:

    Needs-Based Maintenance
    -    What to do before something breaks down
    -    How to save money through maintenance
    -    How to find your wind turbine’s optimal maintenance strategy

    Big Data
    -    Optimization and digitalization: The key to standardization
    -    Future asset management prediction

    Reliable Network Integration
    -    Reliable grid integration from park controller to SCADA
    -    What to do for different types of plants
    -    IT security

    Retrofit and Continuous Operation
    -    The benefits of Structural Health Monitoring
    -    How to get the most out of your operation
    -    The most sensible retrofits

    Speaking on behalf of the Bachmann Group, along with Gabriel Schwanzer, were Holger Fritsch, Ulrich Oertel, Thomas Iwert, Axel Ringhandt, Ralf Becher, Janine Buchwald-Nolte, Bertram Lange, Kirsten Larson and Helmut Reinke. The forum was moderated by Professor Jochen Twele from the University of Applied Sciences in Berlin.

    Other speakers attended from MML Solutions GmbH, WKA Blade Service GmbH, re:cap global investors ag, IM&P GmbH, EnBW AG, FGH GmbH, FRAMATOME GmbH, Hydac GmbH, and Key Wind Energy GmbH.

    Bachmann would like to thank all participants for their contribution and we are looking forward to Profi[t] am Wind 2020.

  • atvise® SCADA
    atvise® pure-web, object-orientated visualizations of your SCADA and HMI systems...

  • Due to its generic structure, the specially designed HMI and SCADA solutions from Bachmann electronic for professional automation and control center technology can be used in all application areas and industries such as energy, plant construction and mechanical engineering, maritime applications or logistics. The modern and efficient structure enables scaling from extremely small applications with scarcely a dozen information points up to industrial-scale systems with several hundred thousand process values. Top-quality user interfaces are produced by using pure web technologies; the fact that installation on the HMI devices is dispensed with is an additional benefit. Visualization is available on all equipment with a standard browser and is not constrained by screen sizes and resolutions.

    atvise® portal and the connected M1 controllers offer a lightweight concept, allowing a gradual extension according to the requirements. All this comes with the customary atvise® technologies which guarantee maximum reuse and efficiency, hereby complementing the world of visualization.
