meteocontrol GmbH, a specialist for monitoring systems and quality assurance of photovoltaic systems, plans to move the development and production of its data loggers from Moers to Augsburg. The company’s base in Augsburg will take over these areas in July 2016. Until recently, meteocontrol has focused exclusively on developing Web portals that monitor and manage PV systems in Augsburg. The company expects the combination of operations to produce a range of synergies.
“By concentrating our activities in Augsburg, we intend to increase our competitiveness,” Martin Schneider, the Managing Director of meteocontrol, said in explaining the reasons for the decision. “We also intend to tap the synergies that will result from combining hardware and software development at one development and production location.”Beginning in July 2016, meteocontrol will develop and produce its data loggers, like the blue’Log X series of data loggers, at the company’s base in Augsburg. Through the use of meteocontrol’s monitoring portals such as the VCOM Web application, the data loggers provide an efficient system for use in the professional remote monitoring and control of PV systems.

The company plans to develop innovative software solutions even faster with the help of streamlined processes and short lines of communication. meteocontrol intends to maintain its production base in Germany.
