A game changer
Michael Jurchen, CEO of Jurchen Technology GmbH and Constantin Wenzlik CEO PADCON GmbH, met up with PES to tell us about their new partnership and what it will mean to the global solar industry. Yet another optimistic view of the future in our industry.
PES: We are pleased to welcome you to PES Solar/PV magazine. Would you like to begin by explaining a little about the background of your organisations and how you currently serve the solar/PV industry?
Constantin Wenzlik: PADCON GmbH was founded in 2007 and specialises in monitoring systems, plant communication and power plant controls for PV power plants.
Since 2013 PADCON has also offered intelligent solutions with the Float Controller family, in order to prevent PID (potential induced degradation) on PV systems simply and effectively and to recover the affected modules successfully.
The extensive product portfolio includes solutions for solar power plants worldwide.
Michael Jurchen: Jurchen Technology is a manufacturer and wholesaler of photovoltaic system components since 2008 and is located in Kitzingen, Germany.
We develop and manufacture various mounting and wiring harness systems, especially for photovoltaic ground base power plants. Our products are manufactured under the highest quality standards and thereby provide a long-lasting and profitable life expectancy.
PES: We hear that Jurchen Technology have joined forces with the Sales and Marketing Team at PADCON, can you tell us about this?
MJ: Through the new partnership the two companies will serve international solar markets. The companies will be establishing branch offices in Spain, France, the U.S., and India, and expand their team with additional staff. In exciting growth markets such as Chile, Australia, Turkey, and Pakistan, the combined offering will be rolled out through an existing network of service partners.
PES: What was the motivation for this co-operation?
MJ: With this partnership, we want to expand our product and service portfolio for our customers. PV plant operators and owners will now benefit from a comprehensive, full service package from a single source for their plant portfolio worldwide.
