With Nordtec already under our belts and other trade fairs coming up soon, it’s fair to say that this year has started at full speed once again. At R+W, we are putting all of our energies into developing new coupling ideas to expand our product range even further. We have set ourselves some ambitious targets. Take a look for yourself and see what you think!
And whilst all this is going on behind the scenes, we’ve put together some exciting articles for you to read. One of these articles covers the subject of energy generation, which has gained considerable momentum in recent years. New technologies are becoming increasingly efficient and are really starting to catch on, but did you know that it would be virtually impossible to generate power without couplings?
And this applies by no means only to “old” technologies. Wind, water, natural gas, biogas, tidal range, solar, pump storage, geothermal energy – couplings are the common denominator for all of these resources, and their applications are often demanding. Couplings installed in offshore wind farms, for example, are extremely difficult to access and must therefore be capable of remaining functional for as long as possible. They must also live up to high performance requirements, even when exposed to salt water.
Read the specialist article “Reliable, accurate and powerful – Couplings for energy generation” to find out how R+W couplings are put to use in the energy sector. Prepare to be amazed!
