Dear readers,

The REINHAUSEN family is pleased to welcome further new members: Effective immediately, we will be operating in Turkey through our new subsidiary REİNHAUSEN ENERJİ ÇÖZÜMLERİ ANONİM ŞİRKETİ (RTR) and with the acquisition of a majority stake in ESS Corporation (ESS) in Chandler, Arizona (near Phoenix), MR continues to expand its range of services in the United States.

The US was also the location of the largest asset management contract for the REINHAUSEN Group to date. This service job in Riverside, California, where our specialists from RM modernized nine transformers within a period of just a few months, is presented in this edition of INSIGHT

Another success story is the VACUTAP® VR: 300,000 tap-change operations without requiring maintenance means zero maintenance throughout the entire service life for virtually all network applications. And the new VACUTAP® VR, which will be available starting in February 2017, offers even more power than its predecessor – up to 6,000 kVa.

As the year draws to a close, I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your trust and for our successful collaboration in 2016. I wish you all the best for 2017 and am looking forward to new, exciting projects in the coming year!

Michael Rohde
Managing Director
