In order to pave the way for a better and above all cleaner future together with our customers, Inductotherm plants are also used in the production of components for wind energy and photovoltaics.
For most people, the solar energy is a good and clean form of energy. But for us, this application offers the opportunity to expand the field of application for silicon. Our plants enable the production of solar-grade silicon for the production of solar panels. Solar plants are a good investment opportunity.
Unfortunately, the costs for a correspondingly productive photovoltaic system are currently still extremely high. For this reason, Inductotherm is building systems that make silicon production much more efficient and economical, so that these costs can be reduced in future – not least for the benefit of the environment.
In the case of wind energy, the wind force is converted into electrical energy by means of appropriate turbines. This process makes winds a renewable and clean source of energy that is increasingly prevalent and is being used for more and more applications. At the same time, the emission of greenhouse gases can be reduced if a source of energy based on fossil fuels is replaced. Wind turbines are used both in the windy regions and offshore areas.
Inductotherm has a large number of customers who are leaders in the production of castings for the wind power. Large components such as blade adapters, rotor hubs, turbines, etc. are in innovative foundries such. As the Hulvershorn iron foundry in Bocholt, the HegerGuss GmbH Enkenbach and HegerFerrit GmbH manufactured in Sembach.
