PFISTERER is one of the world’s leading technology companies for energy infrastructure solutions. At its Gussenstadt site, it has established a successful partnership with Lebenshilfe, Kreisvereinigung Göppingen e. V. – a charity for people with disabilities.
The CONNEX pluggable connection system from PFISTERER has been successfully certified by Siemens Energy for use in 420 kV Clean Air switchgears. PFISTERER is the first manufacturer to be certified for this application and is thus making an important contribution to environmentally friendly energy transmission.
In partnership with weekly newspaper DIE WELT, the Cologne-based rating and ranking agency ServiceValue GmbH has conducted a nationwide survey to find out how attractive German companies are in the eyes of the public. The results are presented in a study called “Germany’s Best Employers”.
Within TenneT’s DolWin6 network connection project, the DolWin kappa offshore platform was successfully installed off the coast of Lower Saxony. In future, it will transform the alternating current (AC) from three wind farms from 155 kV to 362 kV and subsequently to 320 kV direct current (DC) and then transmit it to land almost without losses. For this, the platform is the first to have gas-insulated switchgear (GIS). This was preceded by the successful high voltage testing of the HV installation by PFISTERER in Cádiz, Spain. The transmission network operator TenneT is once again using PFISTERER’s CONNEX inner cone high voltage fittings.
TenneT, a transmission network operator, tasked PFISTERER with developing a universal repair joint for submarine cables. The one-size-fits-all solution is designed to fix cable faults quickly and efficiently with minimal inventory costs – whatever the cable type or manufacturer. This is the first time in the world that a solution of this scope will be realised. For the transmission network operator, it creates completely new opportunities for inventory management and submarine cable repairs.
The transformation of Pfisterer Holding AG into a European company (Societas Europaea, SE) was completed with the commercial register entry (HRB 790497) on 28 July 2023. The new legal form underlines PFISTERER’s positioning as a future-oriented international technology company for connection and contacting technology in power grids. At the same time, it represents a significant milestone for the further successful development of the company, independent of the founding family.
PFISTERER, a leading provider of energy infrastructure solutions, has made a significant product donation to Ukraine. This initiative is part of PFISTERER's commitment to providing rapid assistance to rebuild, repair, and strengthen the power grid in Ukraine. The donation was made possible in cooperation with the Service Desk Ukraine, an initiative by German Eastern Business Association (Ost-Ausschuss der Deutschen Wirtschaft), as well as the Blau-Gelbes Kreuz e.V. and the Energy Community Secretariat.
Nothing has shaped the development of the past 140 years like electrical energy. At PFISTERER, we make sure that the electricity goes where it is needed. For example, our products are used in wind turbines, substations, underground cable systems and overhead lines.
