Editorial: The Cleantech Edition

Dear Read­ers,

In addi­tion to all the crises cur­rent­ly afflict­ing us around the world, the ener­gy turn­around is a gen­er­a­tional task to pre­serve our beau­ti­ful plan­et and the liv­ing envi­ron­ment with which we are accus­tomed. The sus­tain­abil­i­ty of the ener­gy sup­ply has always been the focus of Maschi­nen­fab­rik Rein­hausen, and is also the focus of this issue of ONLOAD.

In this issue we report on how our diverse port­folio of prod­ucts and ser­vices helps our cus­tomers secure and improve reli­able, sus­tain­able pow­er sup­plies. For exam­ple, our on-load tap-chang­ers have been ensur­ing the opti­mum oper­at­ing volt­age in grids inter­na­tion­al­ly and minimiz­ing trans­mis­sion loss­es for decades. I am also very pleased to present con­tri­bu­tions to volt­age reg­u­la­tion by reac­tive pow­er com­pen­sa­tion in the extra-high volt­age net­works. This is becom­ing even more nec­es­sary in the course of the expan­sion of renew­able ener­gies as replace­ments for con­ven­tion­al rotat­ing pow­er plant generators—a less­er-known require­ment, as well as a less­er-known achieve­ment of Maschi­nen­fab­rik Rein­hausen, although we have been suc­cess­ful­ly involved in this solu­tion busi­ness for over 25 years at our Erfurt loca­tion.

Although the pro­duc­tion of our prod­ucts is not very ener­gy-inten­sive, we also want to con­tin­u­ous­ly improve our­selves in this regard, and will also report on our mea­sures to do so.

I wish you a pleas­ant read and invite you to accom­pa­ny us through the com­ing changes

Your Wil­fried Breuer
