The Supervisory Board of PFISTERER Holding AG announces, that Mr. Michael Keinert, CFO, has left the Executive Board of the PFISTERER Holding AG with immediate effect. Martin Billhardt, CEO, takes over his departmental responsibility on a temporary base.
Dr.-Ing. Bernhard Kahl, formerly Chief Operating Officer, left the company. This is announced by the Supervisory Board of PFISTERER Holding AG. In addition Dorothee Staengel, member of the owner family, resigns her seat on the Supervisory Board.
PFISTERER has gone through a process of realignment. The leading special equipment manufacturer and energy infrastructure system supplier is meeting the increased demands of the markets with a broad palette of measures.
In cooperation with British cable manufacturer JDR, PFISTERER has received the order for the delivery of CONNEX cast resin joints and CONNEX plug connectors for up to 72.5 kV for the networking of the new East Anglia ONE (EA1) wind farm.
New PFISTERER cable fittings for 420 kV have successfully passed IEC 62067 qualification testing. The type test including water-tightness test for the joint and the pre-qualification test were carried out in partnership with Greek cable manufacturer Hellenic Cables Group.
In the project for connecting the DolWin gamma converter station, for the first time a cable system consisting of a highly flexible 155 kV high-voltage cable with solid-insulated, pluggable CONNEX size 6 connection system and gas-free epoxy resin joints from PFISTERER has been successfully tested and installed on an offshore platform.
The frequency of blackouts is increasing in many countries and the USA is no exception. This is due to the continued use of outdated power transformers that have been in service for decades, making them prone to failure. However, a new emergency concept will enable a power supply to be restored in a very short time.
PFISTERER has expanded its line of gas-free joints with the dry, pluggable CONNEX size 6 cast resin joint. The new cable connection for voltages of up to 170 kV is quick and easy to install, which is why it is particularly well suited to offshore assembly operations on ocean platforms and is compatible with versatile emergency mobile transformers.
