The Switch Signs Deal With PROKON

NAW Staff, Monday 24 June 2013 - 13:17:11

The Switch has entered into an agreement with Germany-based PROKON for 100 direct-drive 3 MW permanent magnet generator (PMG) and full-power converter (FPC) drivetrains.

"The PROKON order is a good sign that Europe is regaining its belief in wind and other renewables, enabling companies like PROKON with innovative business concepts to grow in a stable and scalable manner," says Jukka-Pekka Mäkinen, president and CEO of The Switch.

Together with repeat agreements from China, The Switch says the total order value it received during June is over EUR 100 million, resulting in the largest order backlog in the company’s history.
