Bonfiglioli to the Hannover Messe

Bonfiglioli Riduttori, as a leading Company in the global power transmission market, will take part into the Hannover Messe 2010 edition (hall 14, stand H30), which sees Italy as official Partner Country to underline the Italian innovative force that plays a significant role in industry at an international level.
The year 2010 represents for Bonfiglioli Riduttori a new challenge, after a 2009 marked by a negative trend, with a consolidated turnover of about 399,16 Mio. Euro, in line with the worldwide economic slowdown. 2010 forecasts present a growth of +25%, driven by the emerging green energy sectors in which Bonfiglioli is playing a major role in the market.

Renewable energies represent a great opportunity of development, in terms of Bonfiglioli products applications. In the wind sector, in which the company has been operating for more than 30 years, the leadership position is confirmed by the choice made by the most important wind turbines and windmill manufacturers such as Suzlon, Vestas and Repower who have chosen Bonfiglioli as a worldwide preferred partner for the high efficiency and reliability of its components.
The know-how acquired in the wind sector has been exploited to develop ad hoc solutions for the photovoltaic industry, not only in mechanical but especially in electronic field, where Bonfiglioli has been working for almost 10 years. The Company has developed the RPS System (compact and modular), a three-phase photovoltaic inverter capable of converting the direct current generated by photovoltaic panels into alternating current ready for feeding into the grid. Also in this sector, where there will be expected a relevant growth worldwide, some of the biggest producers of PV installations have already chosen Bonfiglioli as preferred partner. The largest photovoltaic plant in the world connected to the grid, at Puertollano in Spain, is supplied by 475 Bonfiglioli high efficiency inverters.
The change of market rules, due to the worldwide economic crisis, highlights the need to chase every business opportunity. This means for Bonfiglioli a strong commitment not only in the renewable energy sector, but also in the integration of different technologies to provide exclusive and synergic solutions. Furthermore a special attention is paid to new markets in South America, Middle East and South East Asia, where Bonfiglioli has already gained interesting results.
