Just before the end of the year, the CiS Group won a long-term large project in the wind energy (renewable energy) sector. As of 2018, the CiS Group will supply a large wind power plant manufacturer with sophisticated cables.
Wind energy is now the second most important source of power generation in Germany. Energy obtained from brown coal is still top, although it is not environmentally friendly and therefore should continue to be reduced. Even though a reduction in subsidies is expected to lead to a reduction in the development of wind power plants in 2018, the sector is expecting growth again in 2019 due to the ever decreasing costs of power production from wind energy. New, cheaper technologies with low-maintenance and less fragile generators and bearings, as well as rotor blades with a longer service life, enable plants that no longer require subsidies. The power costs per kW are virtually the same as conventional power plants. This means that development and growth will no longer be subject to lengthy tendering procedures.
In contrast to our standard business, these individual cable sets will be up to 30m long and weigh up to 80kg. These cables therefore pose a different challenge for handling the products, with regard to both the required processing machines and the logistics. Furthermore, this project places high physical demands on the employees. For these cable weights, we require strong men with an interest in new technologies and logistical challenges to work in a clean and light working environment with a good, performance-related salary.
