World’s largest wind expo to run September 27-30 in European wind capital of Hamburg, Germany
HAMBURG, GERMANY; VIDEBAEK, DENMARK; and DALLAS, TEXAS, USA – September 23, 2016 – Geoforce, a world leader in providing global traceability solutions for field equipment, announced today it will be represented by its partner, Denmark-based Your Global Solution (YGS), at the WindEnergy Hamburg expo in Hamburg, Germany, September 27th to 30th. At the expo, Geoforce and YGS will showcase how their solutions take the chaos out of managing expensive and important wind energy assets.
“Whether we are tracking wind turbine blades from manufacturer to dockside, locating vital tool kits used offshore, or monitoring how safe your drivers really are, our solutions are making a difference in the wind energy sector,” said Christopher Gorman, Business Manager for Geoforce United Kingdom.
“YGS is a wind energy market leader due to their exemplary service, products and innovation,” said James MacLean, President & CEO of Geoforce. “They already service wind-related customers who wish to track containers, heavy lifting equipment and tools. Now, through our partnership, tool service and calibration documents can be uploaded to Geoforce’s software application to provide alerts for each container and tool.”
“Working together, our companies have steadily gained traction in the wind energy market over the past two years, and we have several of the major renewables companies on board,” said Lars Birkkjær Nielsen, YGS’ Managing Director & CEO. “Like Geoforce, we believe this is an exciting time for the wind market and that more unprecedented growth is still to come.”
To service the wind energy and renewables market, Geoforce released two industry leading GPS tracking devices in 2016, both of which will be presented at WindEnergy Hamburg:
- The GT1 Global Asset Tracker, the world’s most rugged battery powered GPS satellite tracking device which is also IECEx / ATEX Zone 0 certified.
- The GT0 Compact Asset Tracker, the world’s smallest battery powered industrial GPS satellite tracking device.
In addition, YGS and Geoforce will present the GO7 Advanced Vehicle Tracker. The G07, which allows companies to keep tabs on vehicular fleets, while complying with Hours of Service / Electronic Logging Device (ELD) regulations, is now available within Europe and beyond through YGS.
WindEnergy Hamburg is the world’s leading expo for wind energy. With more than 1,200 exhibitors and nine exhibition halls, the event will bring together major players in the wind industry and related sectors. YGS and Geoforce will be in Booth 434 in Hall A1.
