These faces make wind at KEB

A portrait of the team

In the field of frequency inverters, KEB's orientation rests on three pillars: industrial applications, electromobility and renewable energies with a strong focus on wind energy. The requirements in the latter area range from high robustness and long maintenance intervals to high safety requirements: In the "wind team" at KEB headquarters, which has been expanded to five colleagues, all threads from customer requirements, worldwide sales and support or service come together. The enlarged team shows that KEB will increasingly focus on this future topic and the business area will continue to grow. But who are these five faces?

The Webcast

Under the title "Ready for high-performance wind power plants" Eicke and his team will show why high power in particular suits KEB products particularly well: Wind turbines must operate safely and stably and meet the highest quality requirements. "We also apply these standards to our pitch and yaw systems, such as the very current 23P6 for high outputs," says Eicke. In this webcast, the team shows which options customers gain with KEB – from frequency converters to brakes.
