Global Tech goes for Drying Systems

Press Release
Thursday, November 15, 2012
Drying System

With the wind farming industry growing more important every year, we see more and more potential in this market also for our efficient drying systems.

 

We are therefore extra pleased about an order we got from Global Tech I Offshore Wind GmbH, based in Hamburg, to supply drying systems to their wind park Global Tech I in the North Sea, approx. 180 km off Bremerhaven, running an impressive 80 wind turbines that manage to supply about 445.000 households per year. Compared to the energy production of a conventional coal-fired power plant Global Tech I can avoid the emission of more than a million tons of the climate damaging carbon dioxide (CO2)!


Global Tech I also relies on environment friendly solutions to make sure their staff can work under the best possible conditions. This is why they approached Pronomar for their highly efficient drying systems for a total of 21 survival suits. The drying systems dry by means of a big amount of warm air coming from a powerful blower that blows the air directly into the suits to be dried. Even though the blower is a powerful one it still uses very little energy which is in-keeping with Global Tech I idea of environment-friendliness.


The drying systems also prolong the lifetime of the costly suits which means less purchasing costs. From a health point of view the drying systems decrease the risk of sickness among the staff (as it goes without saying that when you can work in dry and properly maintained outfits you are less likely to get sick) which as a consequence increases motivation and productivity.


We are happy about this order and hope to see the wind farming industry getting bigger and bigger, not only as a market for us but also in terms of the environment. If we don’t look after our environment now, we run the risk of it collapsing on us all in the not too far away future.
