Wind-turbine Engineering and Technology transfer

  • SETEC Company was founded in 1989 and has been continuously run by CEO Fritz Fahrner.
  • In 1992 the department for engineering, research and development was started in Dresden. Its objectives are control-engineering and power-electronics for electric motors and generators. In addition, IGBT inverters are designed for improving power quality in electrical power networks.
  • In 1997 the company moved into a new building, which is still today's business location, with departments for administration, engineering services and production.
  • Since 2005 the design department was extended by a team of mechanical engineers, aiming to improve the existing design of direct-drive wind-turbines. Further tasks are the achievement of high competitiveness­ of costs, fabrication and robustness of direct drive PM-generator.
  • SETEC is located at a suburb of Dresden, only 10 minutes away from the airport and highway, and 20 minutes from the city centre.
