24. Innovation Day for SMEs BMWi: EurA meets Ulla Schmidt

Berlin, 18 May 2017: The Aachen EurA branch director Johannes Schmidt has met the vice-president of the German Bundestag Ulla Schmidt. Together with Aachen University of Applied Sciences, EurA presented the climbing service platform for wind power plants called SMART

More than 300 innovative small and medium-sized enterprises, research facilities and cooperation networks from all over Germany meet in Berlin this year.
The multitechnological performance show is also a popular meeting place to get in contact with representatives from politics and government. The Aachen EurA Head of Delegation, Johannes Schmidt, met the Vice-President of the German Bundestag Ulla Schmidt. Together with the Aachen University of Applied Sciences, EurA presented the climbing service platform for wind power plants called SMART (Scanning, Monitoring, Analyzing, Repair and Transportation), which emerged from the EurA network "InTeWIND - Innovations and Technologies for Wind Energy Plants". The platform consists of a closed work cabin, which independently rises up on the tower as far as the rotor blades and the nacelle of the wind power plant, thus ensuring a safe detection of faults and maintenance for workers. "Ulla Schmidt's interest in our project was very great. She took a lot of time to discuss the possibilities of innovation with us, "says Johannes Schmidt. In addition, the EurA cluster Zukunftspeicher - storage technologies for the energy transition at the 24th Innovation Day presented the "Sonnenbatterie" - a sustainable and safe photovoltaic storage with a lithium-iron phosphate battery - with the companies sonnen GmbH and ESDA Technologie GmbH. The innovation presented is a thermal management system based on phase change materials (PCM) to optimize the performance, cost, and lifetime of Li-PTO batteries for use in very hot and dry areas. The Sonnenbatterie is one of the world's first proven and intelligent lithium storage systems.
