Dr. Jochen Weyrauch, CEO of Dürr AG, says: “These two projects are groundbreaking and not just because of their size. The solar technology order for Teamtechnik shows that the shift in European energy policy is leading to increased investment in the use of renewable energy. The large project for Hekuma is a milestone in our expansion in the North American medical technology market. Combining Hekuma and Teamtechnik’s expertise is what won the customer over.”
Hekuma received the order in the United States, as it has more engineering and production capacity when joining forces with Teamtechnik. In addition, Hekuma can use Teamtechnik’s US site to offer the service for ongoing operation. “The order is an example of the synergies between Hekuma and Teamtechnik. Together, the two companies form a globally efficient competence center for medtech automation,” states Dr. Jochen Weyrauch.
Innovative automation technology for renewable energy
The solar technology order in Europe will see Teamtechnik delivering high-performance systems that automatically connect solar cells to a so-called string. This order is significant not only because of its size but also technologically, since it uses a patented bonding process.
In Europe, there is growing demand for solar systems and other technologies for the use of renewable energy. This is to reduce the dependence on fossil fuels and the emission of greenhouse gases, which are harmful for the climate. “The expansion of renewable energy is an opportunity for European technology suppliers and mechanical engineering firms. They ensure reliability and stable supply chains in the provision of solar panels and other climate-friendly technologies,” says Dürr CEO Dr. Jochen Weyrauch.
