Twenty years ago: TRAMAG’s entry into the Photovoltaic Technology

How TRAMAG helped to connect the Fürth Solarberg to the grid

Shortly before Christmas 2003, TRAMAG had to save the “Fürther Solarberg” project for the municipal energy supply company Infra Fürth at short notice. The transformers of another manufacturer had burnt out, and functionally reliable replacements were urgently needed. If the solar park did not produce its first electricity by the end of the year, the financing was in danger of collapsing.

Previously without experience in photovoltaic technology, but flexible and highly motivated, the team is developing the necessary transformers at turbo speed. The photovoltaic plant “Fürther Solarberg” goes online on time. TRAMAG had opened up a new, lucrative market overnight and once again impressively confirmed its reputation as a competent and reliable partner. In 2005, the Solarberg, built on the southern slope of a redeveloped former landfill site and financed by a citizen participation model, was one of the 50 largest photovoltaic plants in the world.*

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

For twenty years now, TRAMAG has been providing the best arguments for relying on TRAMAG’s proven solar technology know-how in large-scale photovoltaic plants, including the use of the following products:

  • Transformers for the conversion of 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.

Find out how TRAMAG itself became a solar power generator in the next post on TRAMAG photovoltaic technology-competence.

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.
