All round optimisation
PES was pleased to have the opportunity follow up and find out about the latest updates to KUBUS and the M10 Solar Campus, with Gregor Reddeman, the CEO at M10 Industries AG. Things are still looking good, with expansion and innovation continuing well in to 2018.
PES: Welcome back to PES Solar/PV magazine. Thanks for talking with us. For our new readers would you like to begin by explaining a little about the background of M10 and how you currently serve the solar/PV industry?
Gregor Reddemann: M10 Industries AG specialises in developing and producing highly efficient state-of-the-art cell connecting automation equipment. Based in Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany, in the so called Solar Valley, our young dynamic team of skilled engineers and technicians face this challenge under the leadership of solar pioneers of Günter Schneidereit, Reinhard Willi and myself Gregor Reddemann.
Our M10 Solar Campus incorporates our development and technology centre, production and material testing, including preliminary acceptance, 24/7 service support and service.
This enables us to provide our customers with ideal solutions. Our performance areas are perfectly synchronised to suit each other’s needs. This is achieved through the close connection to our subsidiary, SI Module – our module manufacturer, in a cutting edge facility.
PES: We know solar/PV is a growth industry, is this having an impact on your business?
GR: Of Course. We do see a lot of movement and investment activity in the market and do benefit from this. However, there is a continuous growth in the market, module prices are continuously decreasing.
This fact sometimes makes decisions slow and customers uncertain regarding their investments. But only a high technology production is fit for this price competition. Our customers pre-calculate their later production costs very precisely.
