Bundling competencies for energy system transformation

Max Bögl and Naturspeicher GmbH have been working closely together on the development of storage solutions for renewable energies since their joint foundation in 2012. Max Bögl Wind AG is, among other things, the market leader in the manufacture, supply and construction of hybrid towers. At Naturspeicher GmbH, 32 employees research and develop storage solutions and technologies for renewable energy sources. These include the natural heat storage unit and the water battery as well as the innovative PiPECrawler installation platform and pressure pipes made of polyethylene. In Gaildorf, both companies continue to work together with Alexander Schechner on the construction of the first water battery, the pilot project for natural power storage. This is a 70 megawatt hour short-term storage facility connected to a wind farm and designed to help keep the power grid stable in the future. Innovative products such as these will be increasingly in demand on the energy market in the future, and both companies want to take a pioneering role here thanks to their expertise.


Every employee contributes to the success

"We are pleased that we can bundle in-depth competencies in one company with the merger", says Josef Knitl, CEO of Max Bögl Wind AG and Managing Director of Naturspeicher GmbH. "For the development of innovative energy, storage and heating solutions, we need expert engineers and employees from a wide variety of sub-areas". He expects a sustainable exchange of know-how between the two companies as well as even higher quality and speed in the implementation of current and future projects.
