United Arab Emirates

Leadership position in the world market further expanded Horb a.N., March 2009 DEGERenergie has its leading position on the world market for solar – tracking systems further expanded. Last year, the company achieved a sales increase of 35 percent. The tracking systems by DEGERenergie to increase the energy output of solar systems by up to 45 percent. DEGERenergie has sold 9,000 tracking systems for photovoltaic systems in the value of 36 million euros in the past year in all the world. Thus, the company achieved 35 percent more sales than in the previous year (EUR 27 million). The rate of increase over 2006 (sales: 14 million euro) is even at nearly 160 percent.

The growth in the number of units sold are nearly identical: which left the production halls of DEGERenergie, in 2006 approximately 3,500 tracking systems this value a year later already amounted to 6,800 units and reached the 9.000 mark last year. A large part of the systems 2008 went to Spain, where the framework conditions for investors are very attractive. At the same time the company entered into several new markets: Australia, Canada and the United States, Greece, Italy, Czech Republic, Romania and Bulgaria. Currently DEGERenergie has 37 employees, moreover, about 340 people by the suppliers of the company in Baden-Wurttemberg are employed. Artur Deger, founder and Managing Director of DEGERenergie: Our business depends the framework conditions, solar energy is obtained from among those in the respective countries.

The higher charges for feeding into the grid, more attractive for small is their willingness to use our systems as large investors and higher.\” Focus 2009: U.A.E. and United States these conditions not only constantly change according to Artur Deger, they are also quite dependent on the respective political climate. We will expand our distribution capacity, mainly in the United Arab Emirates and in the United States this year.

Dispachter CAT

Real-time monitoring CAT-1 is the basis for optimised network management without any risk for the security of supply of Hannover, April 20, 2009 many transmission network operators face the problem that formerly sufficiently dimensioned overhead lines become potential bottlenecks due to growing electricity consumption or the increased supply of wind power. Because heating of the conductor increases with increasing current flow, the material expands more and deeper SAG the conductors. The minimum distance of the cables to each other or to the ground setting limits the permissible current loads. To avoid investments in additional capacity, the existing lines to be exploited as best as possible. This helps CAT 1 by Nexans, a real-time monitoring system for transmission lines.

It increases network security and the annual average usable capacity with new routes. Complete data acquisition and information processing for Dispachter CAT-1 captures the mechanical this with solar-powered and akkugepufferten instruments Head tension, ambient and solar temperature and optional wind data. The SAG of the cables can be at any time exactly calculate the most important variable for the safe operation of overhead lines. The measuring stations via radio to data collector, which in turn communicate via SCADA Protocol over the network and the network control centre to transmit the data. So the current excess capacity and the cable slack at the dispatching headquarters are known thanks to CAT-1. This allows it to operate lines under favorable weather conditions over the original design border.

So that always a safe operation is not ensured, CAT-1 approach to defined limits raises an alarm. The operator personnel can react quickly and avoid serious damage or blackouts. Double advantage over the traditional network management real-time monitoring has to operate according to data sheet\”two great advantages: on the one the alarm function focused readings, not an imaginary worst-case scenario. That includes Risks in the operation, which may arise through extreme weather condition about on sunny, windless high summer day.
