New Partnership with Kraft Werks Engineering

SET Sustainable Energy Technologies GmbH (SET) has signed an agreement with the company Kraft Werks Engineering (KWE) based in Medina Ohio U.S. recently. This agreement will allow Kraft Werks Engineering to support the sales and service activities in North America as well as introduce SETCON® to the exclusively selected customers. This official announcement also means that SET Sustainable Energy Technologies GmbH has officially expanded their business to a third territory, after EMEA and Asia.

Kraft Werks Engineering was formed through the acquisition of the GÝROL® Fluid Drive and TLT-ASH Handling product lines whose roots can date back to 1930. As a specialist in the large precision machining services, Kraft Werks Engineering has many years of experience in the energy and oil & gas industry, moreover, the company consists of experienced and skilled team who have a deep know-how about the local market.

According to the information from International Energy Agency, the global energy-related CO2 emissions grew to 36.3 gigatonnes in 2021, which is the highest record ever at the annual level. As the fuel mix of US power generation is undergoing a considerable transition and coal power has declined in the last decade as the shale gas boom made natural gas-fired generators more cost-competitive, however, the CO2 emissions of the US in 2021 still increased by 4.5% from 2020, which pushed emissions to 4.6 gigatonnes.

Together with Kraft Werks Engineering, SET Sustainable Energy Technologies GmbH will introduce their high efficient drive – SETCON®, the electro-mechanical variable-speed gearbox designed to control speed of large pumps and compressors – to the North American market and help the local business to optimize their energy efficiency and to reduce the emissions.
