Together with Emerald Ventures (Switzerland), Orlen VC (Poland) and Nabtesco Ventures (Japan), Phoenix Contact Innovation Ventures enables eologix sensor technology gmbh to promote international growth and, above all, to significantly expand the team.
The first investment
“With this financing round, we are supporting eologix together with our partners on their successful path to further consolidate their market position in the onshore and offshore sector,” explains Marcus Böker, Managing Director at Phoenix Contact Innovation Ventures. “eologix was our first investment with Phoenix Contact Innovation Ventures in 2016. We are therefore particularly pleased that this journey is continuing. For the Phoenix Contact Group, this development is a further concrete step in the implementation of the All Electric Society.”
eologix, the Austrian market leader for ice detection on wind turbines, develops sensors that measure directly on the rotor blade surface and thus make renewable energies even more attractive. With the new investment, eologix will extend and expand its existing product portfolio with additional condition monitoring services in order to achieve the long-term vision of having eologix sensors on every wind turbine. Internationalization is now to be driven forward with new international investors.
Only together can we create a sustainable world
“If we want to drive forward the energy transition, we need to make renewable energies even more attractive and profitable. With its sensor technology, eologix makes a significant contribution to improving the performance of wind turbines and offers customers and ultimately our company significant added value,” says Thomas Schlegl, Managing Director and co-founder of eologix sensor technology gmbh.
Renewable energies can guarantee a secure energy future. Graz-based Green-Tech eologix sensor technology gmbh wants to use its sensor systems to help make wind power even more attractive.
The Phoenix Contact team is proud to be part of this journey. The investment is a further clear commitment to realizing our goals: Together we are creating a sustainable world based on our passion for technology and innovation.
