After successes with other joint projects, this was our biggest one, and we aspire to expand our cooperation to other projects in Europe.”

“We are proud to be part of this very exciting FAIR project”, says Martin Seipel, Managing Director of Electrical Oil Services GmbH, and adds: “This has been one of our largest installation projects since the foundation of EOS GmbH in Germany in 2018. The successful completion and our partner’s trust proves that we are ideally positioned to deliver transformer services for a wide range of specialist electrical contractors, OEMs, large and smaller industrial companies along with power stations in Europe.”
