International participation with 77,000 visitors from 156 countries: Thanks to the sharp rise in awareness of future energy supply and the huge potential in renewable solutions, the world’s largest exhibition for the solar industry, Intersolar Europe, boasted a record number of exhibitors and visitors. Around 77,000 visitors from 156 countries and 2,280 exhibitors invaded the 15 exhibition halls at the New Munich Trade Fair Centre from 8-10 June 2011.
2. generation SOLAR pumps with high efficiency
Also the Grundfos stand was well-attended during all three exhibition days. Key Account Manager Christiane Schloot says:
”Many new potential customers from all over the world were introduced to our latest solar thermal technologies and services. The high efficiency ECM circulators for primary circuits of solar thermal systems: SOLAR PM2 and MAGNA SOLAR were subject to high interest and great scrutiny. And rightly so. They represent state-of-the art technology, and Grundfos’ extensive pump knowhow and application experience from the 1. generation of solar pumps is clearly evident in our new SOLAR range”.
Among others, the new SOLAR range offers:
- Developed and optimised for solar thermal systems
- Improved efficiency
- Energy savings of up to 80%
- Controlled by PWM signal
- Multiple PWM feedback signals to system control.
As always the Intersolar exhibition was a good place for networking with industry professionals and key decision-makers. Furthermore, Grundfos sales staff and Key Account Managers met up with several of their customers – as most major OEM manufacturers of solar thermal and heat pump systems also exhibited their latest technologies and solutions.
"It is definitely a brilliant place for getting into dialogue with customers and other professionals about new trends in solar thermal and the intelligent combination with other technologies, e.g. heat pumps.
But it is also true that the Intersolar Europe is more and more being dominated by the photovoltaic industry," concludes Group Key Account Director, Mr Michael Verdirk.
Thank you all
Lastly, we would like to extend special thanks to those who visited the Grundfos stand during the exhibition. We look forward to seeing you again at the next Intersolar – be it in Europe, China, India or North America.
