Grand opening of Jupiter Bach’s new world class manufacturing site in China

Through our devotion to wind, Jupiter Bach has now completed the expansion of our production footprint in China, by a new state of the art factory in Dezhou, Shandong province, to serve leading wind turbine manufacturers.

Our team in Dezhou (Shandong, China) has celebrated the grand opening of our new factory. It has only taken 9 months from a green field until our team started to move into a functional factory, so it was a very proud General Manager (Martin W. Papsoe) who opened the line of speeches thanking the team and our partners.

The Factory will be nearly 25,000 m2 and will further strengthen the global leadership of Jupiter Bach, delivering high quality and competitive components for the wind industry and thereby supporting the strategy in the industry to further improve levelized cost of energy.

Starting at the design phase, the new factory has been laid out to fulfil the highest environmental standards along with some of the most advanced technological processes in wind turbine composites. High quality and efficiencies were also a major focus when designing and setting up the factor which can be seen in the fully lean approach to floor plan and equipment complemented by automated processes.

The location in Dezhou is strategically chosen to serve both global and local customers in the wind industry and each year more than 50,000 parts will leave the location to be part of wind turbines producing green energy for a cleaner world.

Together with the newly inaugurated factory in Weihai (Shandong, China) Jupiter Bach operates more than 35,000 m2 in China.

Jupiter Bach joining APQP4Wind

We are proud to announce that Jupiter Bach is adopting to the APQP4Wind process by getting two of our colleagues certified as APQP4Wind Specialist.

APQP4Wind has since January 2017 been the frame of reference to be used in the wind industry in order to strengthen the cooperation between manufacturers and suppliers, speaking the same language, ensure quality assurance processes and thereby contribute to lower the cost of energy.

For Jupiter Bach this is the starting point for implementation of an APQP4Wind process where quality should flow throughout the entire management team and organization. All the key functions will be actively involved in driving risk identification and mitigation.

APQP4Wind, as part of project management, will support on-time, cost, quality, delivery and ensure satisfied customers. But above all, it will help our organization in a changeover process to a more proactive and preventive mindset.

Beatriz Quintanilla Fernandez in her role of Global Quality Manager and Marta Ordas Tejedor in her role as Global Administrator will lead the change together with a cross functional team.

Nacelle cover #50,000 delivered

During December 2018 Jupiter Bach has rolled off the line nacelle cover number 50,000 since Jupiter Bach entered the wind power industry.

Nacelle cover #50,000 is a Shanghai Electric 7MW offshore cover built in our newly inaugurated factory in Weihai, China. The 50,000 covers are mounted on approx. 15-20% of the total installed turbines, which produce enough renewable power for over 75 million homes.

Jupiter Bach is very proud to be part of this positive impact on the reduction of the global carbon footprint and is very much looking forward to continue partnering with our customers working towards the same goal.

This milestone in 2018 marks yet another stepping stone in Jupiter Bach’s devotion to wind, which earlier this year also resulted in the introduction of the scalable nacelle cover called iO

Proud to be part of the first Nordex N149/4.0-4.5 installations

When Nordex in August erected the first of two N149/4.0-4.5 turbines at the Wennerstorf II windfarm located roughly 30 km south of Hamburg, it was with a prototype nacelle cover from Jupiter Bach.

The new nacelle cover developed for the Delta4000 series, is the second step in the co-operation with Nordex, after having successfully delivered the nacelle covers for the N131 turbines since 2017.

With the N149 turbines, the Nordex Group sets new standards in the light-wind segment for both rotor diameter and maximum output. The N149 turbines are also well designed in terms of acoustics for increasing citizen acceptance, with a sound emission level of less than 106.1 dB(A) even when operating at full load. In addition, they can be operated in a variety of sound-optimized modes which can be set according to wind direction and the time of day to keep noise levels as low as possible.

The start of serial production is scheduled for Q1 2019.
