ImWind to Start Managing BaxEnergy Operations in Germany

In an effort to be closer to customers and provide additional operational services, BaxEnergy has decided to join forces with ImWind Technik GmbH. This partnership complements the BaxEnergy skills in designing cutting-edge software solutions for renewable energy by adding remarkable domain knowledge and power plant operational capabilities.

ImWind has been pioneering wind energy projects in Austria and Germany since 1995 and then expanded to other European countries including Spain, Hungary, Bulgaria and Romania. At present, ImWind directly operates 350 MW of wind energy in Austria. While the core business remains wind energy, ImWind also operates PV and hydro power plants. A pivotal achievement of ImWind was the construction of the highest wind park of its time, Tauernwindpark, 2000 meters in the Austrian Alps. Built nearly 20 years ago, the park is still amongst the highest 5 in the world thus witnessing the technical mastery of the ImWind team.

We are happy to join BaxEnergy’s team in such a special manner” Richard Distl, ImWind Managing Director, said. “This is definitely a great opportunity and our will is to work hard and impress with high quality projects and services.”

Moving the service center from Germany to Austria is a step on the way to dramatically improve the service and heralds BaxEnergy’s intention of bringing field experts, and not just sales managers, physically closer to the market and power plants. Simply, ImWind is a well-known made by consultants with years of experience in operating renewable power plants, even those built in quite unusual locations such as Tauernwindpark.

The partnership with ImWind eliminates entirely any residual barrier between our team and our customers” Simone Massaro, BaxEnergy CEO, said. “We now have in house the experience deriving from operating and optimizing operations for hundreds of MW of wind farms, including those with the highest level of availability in the entire Austria and some of the most challenging one such as the Tauernwindpark which is one of the highest in the world.”

For German customers, ImWind will close the gap between problems and solutions and will do that using the power of the spoken language and the force of their domain knowledge and technical skills. ImWind will provide first-level support and then scale up to BaxEnergy’s experts in case of tougher issues always shielding customers from any language or technical barriers.

ImWind is an energy consulting company with a number of existing customers and a finite set of needs and resources. “We don’t see any sort of pending conflicts” cut it short Richard Distl and Simone Massaro in unison. “We don’t have competing customers and we’ll put enough resources at work to ensure prompt and effective response to any inquiries and challenges.”

As popular wisdom reminds, sometimes the best and the brightest are closer than one might think. And sometimes it even speaks your same language!

Offshore Wind domain knowledge and best practices

UK Calling: BaxEnergy to Expand in Northern Europe

In the past couple of years, UK smashed record after record and is now leading the race to clean energy throughout Europe.

UK is not just rolling out an impressive number of renewable energy projects, but also reducing fossil-fueled power plants at an amazing rate. New offshore wind power stations brought more than 2GW of capacity online in the course of 2018, including Walney Extension—the world’s largest offshore wind farm in the Irish Sea, just off the northwest coast of England. The landscape for 2019 is even better. The Beatrice project in Moray Firth is set to bring nearly 600MW of new power online and construction is undergoing for over 700MW of the East Anglia ONE project not to mention the giant 1.2GW Hornsea Project One off the Yorkshire coast. Albeit latter two projects are slated to become fully operational only in 2020, the feeling that UK is quite hot in the renewable energy industry is very strong. Furthermore, Ireland has over 3GW of installed wind capacity and 40% of the entire country’s energy will come from renewable sources by 2020.

Could a software company that owns an open development platform specifically designed for the renewables industry disregard such a market?

“No, we couldn’t take this longer” Simone Massaro, BaxEnergy CEO, said and then continued. “In a decade, offshore wind could be generating more than a third of the UK’s entire electricity needs and have some 30GW up and running. We matured a significant domain knowledge, and learnt a lot of offshore best practices when we designed and built the monitoring hardware and software infrastructure for the 400MW Global Tech I wind farm in the North Sea. We have a lot to offer in terms of IT solutions for wind monitoring and control to increase effectiveness and safety of operations while reducing production losses and downtime.”

BaxEnergy to Expand in Northern Europe
BaxEnergy Chief Growth Officer Luciano Russo welcomes Barry Gavin, new Business Development Partner in UK and Ireland

Could an industry expert with over 18 years of experience in the energy sector, and founding shareholder of Gaelectric, disregard such a ramping-up IT company willing to expand in UK? Holding senior executive positions, Barry Gavin managed to bring Gaelectric out of Ireland in UK and USA. Quite strategically, Barry Gavin also led to the establishment of the Gaelectric’s energy trading team.
As a result, BaxEnergy appointed Barry Gavin as the Business Development Partner in UK and Ireland with the declared goal of expanding operations in Northern Europe and offering innovative services such as Demand/Response and monitoring of charging stations for electrical vehicles.

“I am delighted to have this opportunity to work with Simone and the team at BaxEnergy.” Gavin commented “Based on my own experience of managing a large portfolio of RE assets, I believe that BaxEnergy has developed a software platform and approach that will add real value to any asset owner. In particular, the platform’s ability to incorporate all classes of generation under one umbrella platform, coupled with its accessibility, scalability and the flexibility to customise and tailor to customer needs, is what sets this solution apart from competitors.”

To sign off the agreement, Massaro concluded “Barry will bring value to our business presenting our solutions to a wide range of new customers in a strongly growing market and, moving forward, in developing and transforming new ideas into concrete innovation.”
