Well thank you mister German good
00:00:02
morning ladies and gentlemen and just
00:00:05
to have the opportunity to talk about
00:00:07
our company and its underside or in all
00:00:10
research and development activities
00:00:12
here in this auditorium I'm I'm
00:00:15
replacing make one exception Parkinson
00:00:17
who is we had was to decided to give
00:00:21
the presentation here unfortunately had
00:00:23
to change is blind to to unforeseen
00:00:26
reasons and other what not these so I
00:00:28
would take his spot here short outline
00:00:33
of my presentation I will briefly
00:00:37
introduce all company under title maybe
00:00:39
it's not a node or a few even though
00:00:41
it's quite long established company. I
00:00:45
will talk about our needs in philosophy
00:00:48
in nineteen in in this work. And also
00:00:52
talk about some international
00:00:54
cooperative projects we are running in
00:00:57
the future and past. And then once we
00:00:59
see is the competence is and
00:01:01
perspectives in this environment of
00:01:04
aren't you so first a brief overview of
00:01:10
the company and this is the global
00:01:13
supply of it services equipments and
00:01:16
grounds for hydropower for like a power
00:01:19
generation for pulp and paper industry
00:01:23
for metalworking steel plants and for
00:01:26
separation devices in industrial
00:01:29
sectors and municipal sectors. So and
00:01:32
this is a real about company acting it
00:01:36
or two hundred fifty production and
00:01:39
sales companies worldwide around twenty
00:01:42
four dollars an employee. So it's
00:01:44
really see it's a medium size company
00:01:47
but it's all for some development over
00:01:50
the last decades and this title in this
00:01:53
environment is then for the electricity
00:01:56
generation and the are we have to
00:01:58
divisions of you a operands which or
00:02:00
large title the compact I do which is
00:02:02
to small and medium size twelve and
00:02:05
then the segment of service and we have
00:02:07
which is very important especially in
00:02:09
the established markets in euro. And
00:02:12
then hunts and trouble generators as
00:02:15
just a products as mentioned on a title
00:02:20
is well important sector in this and
00:02:23
this company and one thirty percent in
00:02:26
the season in ordering intrigue and we
00:02:30
supply equipment from wanted to buy a
00:02:33
so from the turbine to the generator to
00:02:38
the automation and control systems. And
00:02:41
this and this is very still works for
00:02:44
the hard to power generation for
00:02:45
electricity generation out of what all
00:02:48
these companies are quite well
00:02:51
established the product several
00:02:53
establish but nevertheless we in strong
00:02:56
need of idea in and of its development
00:02:58
work in order to keep a position in the
00:03:01
markets worldwide in order to keep all
00:03:04
products developing for the future
00:03:07
needs we have some more than four
00:03:11
hundred thousand megawatts of turbines
00:03:12
in sport worldwide. So that's quite a
00:03:14
fleet of the ones which are coming out
00:03:16
of our facilities we have generators
00:03:19
what Morton happened twenty years
00:03:22
experience in lecture generator. We
00:03:25
have this competence is again
00:03:28
distribute it in many counters in the
00:03:31
board. And supplied you it's from issue
00:03:35
to America from Europe to Africa and in
00:03:41
this field of service is also the
00:03:44
rehabilitation of power plants is one
00:03:46
of our key consequences which we need
00:03:50
to further develop cost we see a huge
00:03:52
future they are in data validation this
00:03:55
is the the utilisation. And improvement
00:03:58
for the economies and for the customers
00:04:02
this well and here is you use potential
00:04:05
especially in this direction the call
00:04:07
dislike euro and last but not least but
00:04:11
they more popular there what record
00:04:13
hydro compact this is the small and
00:04:17
medium sized top ones which are you
00:04:19
might use also in Switzerland it's more
00:04:22
reverses more installation sites maybe
00:04:25
four five to fifty megabytes of up all
00:04:28
it's it's with something on the side is
00:04:33
also by well established we have three
00:04:37
locations in Switzerland on already. So
00:04:41
this rare ritual is us space or a chain
00:04:45
companies which have joined to this
00:04:47
country title with the recent years.
00:04:50
There we have a setup of your won't
00:04:51
really believe what using small medium
00:04:54
sized turbines this is a smaller size
00:04:57
Elton wonders for instance for the well
00:05:01
this is more populist deletions then we
00:05:03
have a of a close to the on here we
00:05:07
have the competence end of it on the
00:05:09
buys a special type of turbines where
00:05:11
we have to hide only development also
00:05:13
the air and the or we also have some
00:05:16
hydraulic testing facilities in this
00:05:17
never location out of every sort of
00:05:21
international markets or around the
00:05:23
world in spectra Europe africa. And
00:05:27
"'cause" in E in like if you have we
00:05:32
stick competence end of coding we are
00:05:34
completing also is is here in
00:05:36
Switzerland and then in the swiss
00:05:39
German part we have a years. But we
00:05:42
also have a small workshops for really
00:05:44
the swiss needs this market needs and
00:05:47
in engineering and like same those for
00:05:50
the album and excellent value machinery
00:05:54
our company has been is there is no
00:06:00
several decades and you see and a lot
00:06:03
of names or what is to do that all of
00:06:05
the because there were several
00:06:06
locations and several companies joint
00:06:08
over the last years. But especially
00:06:11
dean all I'm I meant is we have kept
00:06:14
the local that strikes the local
00:06:16
knowhow and local capabilities in order
00:06:19
to further develop this experience
00:06:22
which was a believer in certain
00:06:24
locations. And this gives us on the one
00:06:26
hand stated like a close proximity to
00:06:30
the customer needs and also the further
00:06:33
development of existing experience
00:06:35
existing knowhow into the various
00:06:37
locations for us as a swiss you
00:06:43
utilities at least technology company
00:06:45
we see ardently this development the
00:06:47
basic key issue it's it must for us
00:06:51
especially in this environment both
00:06:52
sorority flea high cost a situation as
00:06:57
to hear the excellence and they regular
00:06:59
in development is the most for the for
00:07:01
the development of our company and here
00:07:05
in our company before maybe to tracks
00:07:08
that one is the internal development
00:07:10
internal development in the in in the
00:07:12
art department in engineering and I net
00:07:15
or ticks. And of course the second
00:07:17
track then the collaborative
00:07:18
development with other technology feeds
00:07:21
the might be inputs from mathematics
00:07:24
phone materials science from astrology
00:07:28
from whatever philosophy astrophysics
00:07:31
to us nomadic cement simulation
00:07:33
results. So we take profit out of all
00:07:37
this time because knowledge which is a
00:07:41
really bright delivers this here in
00:07:43
Tucson for instance and what is all
00:07:46
it's experience that's may just there
00:07:50
for what's very often or crayon when we
00:07:52
apply this transversal developments if
00:07:55
we can include knowhow from other
00:07:58
fields of experience from other
00:08:00
sciences into all daily that for
00:08:04
instance the development of real
00:08:06
simulation missiles had minimum you
00:08:12
progress in the last dictates that has
00:08:14
been starting in the seventies making
00:08:16
our dynamics and aerospace and didn't
00:08:18
then has in progress to the industrial
00:08:21
work over the last week eight we what I
00:08:28
in Switzerland it on that's why don't
00:08:29
we active in many fields of research
00:08:32
projects we use the framework of
00:08:36
european funded projects like they
00:08:39
marry currently or do FP seven
00:08:42
collaborative projects in the speaker
00:08:44
framework of most every also
00:08:46
cooperating with on cost of our
00:08:49
customers and also all competitors and
00:08:52
almost before also with universities in
00:08:54
the various fields of development for
00:08:57
instance maybe a one of a ongoing
00:08:59
project is one the research work on
00:09:02
material material on the ocean and
00:09:05
competition. So in our machinery
00:09:09
representation of what the mediocre we
00:09:11
which we call cohabitation and this may
00:09:13
be the course material damage therefore
00:09:15
we are highly interested in further
00:09:19
developing material coating to protect
00:09:22
the surface is this is one of the
00:09:24
application in but you know in high
00:09:26
threshold for instance we are working
00:09:28
animation in the on the machine itself
00:09:30
so on the operation behaviour of out of
00:09:33
abide in wanted to improve the
00:09:35
population behave especially of design
00:09:38
we increase the flexibility of the
00:09:40
machines and this flexibility is needed
00:09:42
on the market today with the highly
00:09:44
demands on oh what was contorted
00:09:47
different frequency control we need
00:09:49
machinery which is very fast movement
00:09:52
fasting changeable but in operation
00:09:55
India this hyper for is in it's
00:09:57
important contribution in research work
00:09:59
for instance we are working on foreign
00:10:02
the once in a operation for that
00:10:04
operation where we have to improve the
00:10:07
stability and the just move operation
00:10:11
in order to manage goals high power
00:10:15
like a four hundred make about so eight
00:10:17
hundred megahertz in order to keep this
00:10:18
machinery smooth running further that's
00:10:23
more a frameworks in Switzerland of
00:10:25
course is to CT I've found the projects
00:10:27
maybe of corporations your tape PFA A
00:10:30
TTHC rick and in all single also in
00:10:33
this university of applied science and
00:10:35
so on or you see seattle. So this are
00:10:39
important a medium size projects for us
00:10:41
to to further contribute to the daily
00:10:46
development work and then of course we
00:10:49
have PH D.s financed and various
00:10:51
countries like Canada agrees. And they
00:10:54
really work in clean please what people
00:10:57
works or even so much chops for
00:10:59
students what we are can rise in our
00:11:06
innovation whether is maybe to show in
00:11:09
for a what ones here what we see is the
00:11:13
basic these these intimate integration
00:11:16
let's say this daily the of improvement
00:11:18
of products improvement of efficiency
00:11:20
only movement of us more features this
00:11:23
is what's the what according
00:11:25
incremental innovation innovation lots
00:11:27
in daily very wealthy development
00:11:30
engineers included may just text and of
00:11:33
course willow if more if ford and have
00:11:37
some big a mixture of programs and here
00:11:41
we see this quilting the material or
00:11:43
the development of a recording devices
00:11:46
for material project protection service
00:11:48
protection that's one of the
00:11:49
applications if we would go for most of
00:11:52
that you innovation it could be for
00:11:54
instance a new type of a open a new
00:11:56
type of this a turbine twelve and one
00:12:01
out of an operation India the of course
00:12:04
the if if for them to what you would be
00:12:06
higher and tested H innovation and then
00:12:09
also really if a new line for that what
00:12:15
four of product for a company for
00:12:17
instance hi de Paul was by well known
00:12:20
for this real problems. But new
00:12:23
applications in the current current
00:12:27
took or title turbines give really you
00:12:32
challenge for this type of
00:12:34
applications. And then maybe in the
00:12:36
future this next step might be this
00:12:39
internet of things or however you call
00:12:42
is enough three five four point zero
00:12:44
the big that whatever. So this angel
00:12:47
technology data processing and that
00:12:50
application and interpretation of that
00:12:52
that this might be the next step in or
00:12:55
machinery in order to learn more about
00:12:57
the behaviour in in order to contorted
00:12:59
machine with but that in to make them
00:13:01
more reliable of course in our research
00:13:07
we have the mean two pillows them on is
00:13:11
the fundamental research the other one
00:13:13
is the more applied research
00:13:15
fundamental research is maybe for those
00:13:18
problems research role conferences flow
00:13:21
instabilities. Um hydration no material
00:13:26
it's also protection material for for
00:13:28
hydration like well hop right
00:13:31
materials. So this is really the basic
00:13:34
research wrecked which we see more
00:13:36
hated it goes to university is like you
00:13:39
lose the laboratories then the next
00:13:42
step that applied research is what we
00:13:45
contribute in all facilities where you
00:13:47
stand here we contribute with all know
00:13:49
how it applied research we utilise what
00:13:52
we have learned from the from the
00:13:53
fundamentals out of university research
00:13:56
work. But then in the applied research
00:13:58
we have to implement this also into a
00:14:00
product singing into a features. And
00:14:02
finally this has to be proven by
00:14:04
measurements or feeder experience and
00:14:08
of course has to be incorporated into
00:14:10
the product in the in the product
00:14:12
behaviour and operation behaviour and
00:14:14
this used in the final approval in the
00:14:16
market if this would not really come to
00:14:20
where major step forward in the market
00:14:24
then the steps before what would have
00:14:27
been not optimum guided and that we
00:14:30
have to be careful to balance
00:14:32
fundamental research applied research
00:14:34
in order to end up with a really focus
00:14:37
in the product itself in the kinda
00:14:43
environment we see a certain risk for
00:14:45
this fundamental research as we may
00:14:48
also of the energy marketing senate
00:14:50
strong a competition energy prices low.
00:14:54
And this a competitive situation has
00:14:59
also impact on all industries and the
00:15:01
assessor police that there might be
00:15:03
some cost pressure on fundamental
00:15:06
research which we will have to be
00:15:09
careful about it looks like it would be
00:15:12
a victim saving about on the long term
00:15:14
what medium we it would lose in any
00:15:16
case. So here. It's important for us to
00:15:20
maintain this findings of I diva also
00:15:25
the fundamental research to keep this.
00:15:28
But yeah we need the corporation is
00:15:31
reversed and institutions to be O
00:15:36
competitive in future to keep excellent
00:15:40
to keep sustainable and to keep
00:15:42
connected to listen understand what all
00:15:44
business needs what industry needs. So
00:15:50
summarising us access for research
00:15:54
needs to create value in the market.
00:15:56
And we need this value in order to for
00:16:00
the development of a business. S a
00:16:03
products are quite well established
00:16:05
over many years. We see we still need
00:16:08
to further develop then in order to
00:16:11
keep the product competitive to keep
00:16:13
the product interesting for customers
00:16:17
and to maintain the current needs in
00:16:20
the market like flexibility and
00:16:21
electricity supply and the we see a big
00:16:26
Johnson this piece locations in order
00:16:29
in in the in to wait to supply this
00:16:32
added value for research and
00:16:35
development out of this this research
00:16:39
institute we have learned that we learn
00:16:43
a lot from hunters. So this trance
00:16:45
what's our competence is and learning
00:16:48
is out of other fields of research is
00:16:50
important for us to give new ways to
00:16:52
give you ideas. And of course in
00:16:55
colouration will miss industrial
00:16:57
partners and of course with universe
00:16:59
this is one of the corners in all I be
00:17:03
working a development work for applied
00:17:06
research and for fundamental research
00:17:09
and the this also important as a
00:17:13
products are quite long lasting also
00:17:15
those do collaborations developed or
00:17:18
were a long time for years. And we need
00:17:22
this partnership this long term
00:17:23
partnerships some of them in
00:17:26
Switzerland some of them outside
00:17:27
switzerland. But we need also have this
00:17:30
stuff to rebuild eating corporations of
00:17:32
this research work. And the perspective
00:17:37
what we sees which line is Switzerland
00:17:39
we should this is it's education system
00:17:43
and universe this is then it's
00:17:45
invaluable establishment of a very
00:17:47
effective for liner in supplying
00:17:50
training and professional development
00:17:52
of all kind of professionals operate a
00:17:54
upright apprentices mechanics engineers
00:17:57
of size and people have the chance to
00:17:59
developing this system units with swiss
00:18:02
education university. So an apprentice
00:18:04
it may become a mechanical engineer may
00:18:07
become inside developed to assign
00:18:09
scientist so that is a review Chastity
00:18:12
in Switzerland which is well
00:18:14
established and very effective in
00:18:16
education what we see fundamental and I
00:18:20
price research and development is a C
00:18:23
successful our work and we need to eat
00:18:26
into intensified all day ways to
00:18:29
collect in just three in academic or
00:18:31
academia. But we also need funding
00:18:33
schemes here in Switzerland which I
00:18:36
effective and which are combining
00:18:38
findings for industry and four year
00:18:41
university work in order to promote and
00:18:43
support research and development
00:18:45
because also other countries are for
00:18:48
the developing the funding schemes for
00:18:53
are in teamwork and we use switch
00:18:55
slides we shall see competitive we
00:18:58
don't need the users born of to the
00:19:01
large frame but we need competitive and
00:19:03
effective sky schemes in order to to
00:19:07
compare be competitive together with
00:19:10
your industry and universities document
