SET Sustainable Energy Technologies GmbH

SET is the leading technology company in the development and industrialization of electro-mechanical variable-speed gearboxes for the efficient speed control of e.g. large pumps and compressors in the business areas of energy, oil&gas and industry.


Our Vision

Our vision is to revolutionize the drive technology market with our highly efficient and most innovative SETCON drives. Based on 35 years of experience in the development of industrial drives, we are continuously working to make our contribution to the energy transition and a CO2-reduced energy supply. For us as a company, the ultimate goal is to take a new, advanced and sustainable path in drive technology.


Our Mission

The need for low-CO2 energy production has never been greater than now. Especially in the energy industry, enormous amounts of energy are still being wasted and the potential for increasing efficiency is far from being utilized. In order to achieve short-term emission targets and a sustainable energy transition, this important point must be focused at. A true efficiency revolution is needed and our highly efficient SETCON drives are already showing a possible way.


Our Experience

Many years of experience in the development, production and testing of drives make SET a reliable global industrial partner. Our company's strength lies especially in the company-internal symbiosis of electronics, mechanics, analytic-calculations and automation, which appears in the high quality and reliability of our products.

SUCCESS STORY from the 80ies to today

SET can look back on a long history in drive technology. The core team has been developing variable speed drives for a wide range of applications for more than 30 years.

SET´s roots are in the technically demanding wind energy sector, where among others VFDs and hybrid drive-systems have been evolved. Already many years ago, SET recognized the increasing demand for energy-efficient drives, especially in the fields of thermal power plants and oil&gas production. This was the starting point for the development of the SETCON drive, an electro-mechanical variable-speed gearbox for the industry.

Continuous patent developments and design optimizations give SET now the technical lead over the competition and are setting new standards in drive technology. Today, SET looks to the future with confidence, taking on the challenges of a sustainable, responsible and energy-efficient age.
