From the Fürth Solar Hill to the own Solar Roof

TRAMAG’s entry as a solar power producer with its own photovoltaic system

Eight years after saving the commissioning of the “Fürth Solarberg” with TRAMAG transformers, the Ammon family decided to install their own photovoltaic (PV) system on the roof of TRAMAG’s own company building. The 184kW peak output is sufficient to supply around 55 households with electricity, as reported in December 2011 by the Fürther Nachrichten on the occasion of the commissioning of the TRAMAG PV system, which was also attended by the Mayor of Fürth, who also climbed onto TRAMAG’s roof.

And of course, the solar energy generated on the roof of the TRAMAG hall has also been used for years to cover the electricity requirements for the operation of the TRAMAG transformer production completely from its own “green” energy source in a CO2-neutral manner.

TRAMAG: 20 years of experience and innovation in solar technology for large-scale photovoltaic systems

The best arguments for relying on TRAMAG’s 20 years of proven solar technology know-how in large-scale PV systems, including the use of the following products:

  • Transformers for translating the voltage generated by the solar inverter (288V) to the required mains voltage (400V), specially designed for operation with optimized inherent losses.
  • LCL filter chokes for safe, grid-compatible current feed of the generated solar energy into the supply grid. A special construction also ensures reduced noise emissions during operation.

The online news service Business Insider reported on 21 June 2023, citing data from the Federal Statistical Office, that 2.6 million PV systems were installed in Germany at the end of March with a total capacity of 70.6 gigawatts. 54.3 million megawatt hours of electricity were fed into the grid by German PV systems in 2022, a share of 11% of total electricity generation, rising to a good 20% on sunny summer days.

Quality is when your QMB goes “High-Five-S” with you

We know where quality must ultimately be demonstrated and proven: In the product, in the customer’s application. But where does quality begin? On the one hand in technical development and on the other hand in the organization of workplaces in production. Employees who keep their workstations tidy maintain an overview, have access to the right tools at all times and can work on the product efficiently and with quality assurance.

Information visit to TRAMAG by the VDI District Association of Bavaria North-East

On the afternoon of St Nicholas’ Day, the TRAMAG plant in Fürth hosted an information event for members of the Association of German Engineers (VDI) from the Bavarian North-East District Association. Due to the regional proximity and also taking TRAMAG’s 100th anniversary as an occasion, we received a request from the Nuremberg VDI local group to visit our plant, which we were very happy to fulfil.

“Quality is when the Customer comes back and not the Product”

The most technically innovative or economically attractive product in an application is worth nothing if the quality is not right. Not only would the failure of the product itself have to be lamented, but possibly also further damage to the entire application.
