WindEnergy Hamburg 2018 | 25 - 28 September 2018



We look forward to seeing you at Wind Energy Hamburg this year!

Swing by the Maxwell booth to meet our team members and ask your questions about ultracapacitor energy storage for wind pitch control. We’ll have our full wind product line on display so you can get hands-on and learn the performance advantages of ultracapacitor (supercapacitor) technology.

Whether you are a wind farm operator, wind technician, pitch system supplier or OEM, we look forward to speaking with you about how we can partner to provide value to your business and end customers.
