MOMENTS OF SUCCESS

Our customers’ success is what motivates us. Our customers think big – every day, in various industries, all around the world – and we help them to experience moments of success.

Moment of Success of the Month

AmplifiedAg – Sustainable Agriculture through Container Farms

  • Year-round growth in 28 square meters: The American company, AmplifiedAg, transforms old shipping containers into hydroponic farms with the goal of growing food more sustainably and all around the world.
  • Embedded technology in each container farm is a key factor here: it creates a controlled environment that allows for maximum plant growth – from planting to harvest – at any location.
  • Customizable and adaptable: WAGO’s products guarantee fast, easy and reliable wiring of lighting elements and controllers.

Railway Systems

Škoda Group – The Reliable Journey Moment

  • The reliability of a system is especially important under extreme conditions – such as for a light rail vehicle that must function properly in all kinds of weather. The goal: Utilize capacities and avoid downtime.
  • The Škoda Group in Finland has built all the light rail vehicles for the second streetcar system in Finland and is familiar with this challenge. Its demands on suppliers are therefore stringent: It needs a reliable partner with reliable components.
  • Škoda therefore chose WAGO for a historical light rail vehicle project – due to its roots in the railway sector and its fitting technologies and approvals.

GEZ Rail Solutions GmbH – Rejuvenating Trains

  • A second life: GEZ Rail Solutions returns older trains from Germany onto the tracks of Mexico.
  • But not before they first undergo technical rejuvenation: All the electronic systems are replaced with new equipment.
  • The centerpiece: The train control system, newly innovated with WAGO, represents a special challenge here – as it ultimately coordinates all vital systems.

Łódź, Poland

When true passion for a job meets expert knowledge, the result can be truly fabulous projects – like one of the most modern train stations in central Europe: the Łódź Fabryczna. This spectacular underground train station has far more to offer than is visible at first glance. The comprehensive technical equipment of the building is also impressive – after all, many trains and buses arrive and depart the station every day, reliably and safely. And the technical experts rely primarily on automation solutions from WAGO.

Power Engineering

Sunresin – eXTReme Conditions for Lithium Recovery

  • The shift to renewable energy also requires expanding battery technologies. This requires the lithium carbonate necessary for construction.
  • Sunresin, a Chinese company specializing in the research, development, and production of adsorption and separation technology, extracts it from salt lakes in Qinghai.
  • Because extremes in altitude, temperature and weather prevail, the company relies on the particularly robust WAGO I/O System 750 XTR control system, which is specially designed for extreme environmental conditions.

Papaflessas, Greece

This feeling of making a contribution to a cleaner world is amazing motivation. With it – and the support of WAGO technology – even the highly complex task of controlling an entire wind farm becomes a fun challenge, according to the engineers in Papaflessas, where one of many wind farms is being built to supply the country with green energy.

Building Technology
