COVID-19 Update

Dear customers,
In the last few days, we probably all had to find solutions for the new and unusual situation with the coronavirus.

AquaSoli continues its activity to satisfy the project needs of its customers …. and above all, there is the hope that despite the corona virus crisis, the necessary transition of the energy sectors will continue.

The AquaSoli team has adapted to the current situation; our office team is continuing working from home. If possible we hold customer meetings and internal meetings via video conference or telephone. At the same time we continue our engineering & planning work nearly unhindered. Field work on construction sites also continues as well as possible with the existing travel restrictions; the risk of infection outdoors is correspondingly low.

As AquaSoli, we see our priority as being to protect our partners, customers and employees as best we can, while continuing to work on our projects. Modern communication technology offers a great variety of possibilities in this time; we are amazed how well it actually works and we can maintain normal business operations.

It is very important to us that we do not lose sight of the original climate crisis – despite the current crisis situation.

We live in the hope that the virus crisis will show us all and prove how the country, society and ultimately the entire world can effectively tackle and eliminate a threatening problem.

Please feel free to contact us at any time if you have current questions or concerns. We understand the limitations in your working environment. We are particularly pleased that everyone is trying to have and discuss ideas for future projects right now.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us!

We thank you for your support and your adaptability in these times!

Faithfully,

Your AquaSoli Engineeering Team

City of Munich declared Climate Emergency – AquaSolis headquarter is already in line with enhanced building standards

AquaSoli congratulates the City of Munich for having declared a Climate Emergency on 18.12.2019.

The climate emergency declaration movement (https://www.cedamia.org) originates from Australia. The photo attached shows Ms. Margaret Hender in Adelaide, South Australia, one of the initiators of this movement, next to our AquaSoli Head of Sales in Australia, Mr. Ekkehard Groskreutz.

Margaret (as chairperson) and Ekkehard (as technical adviser) have also been working together for a number of years within CORENA (www.corenafund.org.au), an organisation which helps with the design and provides finance on a revolving funds basis for energy efficiency and solar energy generation systems for not-for-profit organisations.

AquaSoli fully supports the City of Munich’s approach as it includes the commitment to follow strict energy efficiency and sustainability guidelines when it comes to the design and construction of new buildings.

In this respect, AquaSoli is proud that the company headquarters in Munich has been operated climate-neutrally since moving into the renovated mill building in 2011 using electricity and waste heat from a 130kW Francis turbine and a biopellet heating system.

AquaSoli gratuliert der Stadt München, die am 18.12.2019 den Klima-Notstand ausgerufen hat. AquaSolis Firmenzentrale in München bezieht Elektrizität und Heizenergie bereits klimaneutral.

Die Bewegung der Klima-Notstandserklärung (https://www.cedamia.org) hat ihren Ursprung in Australien. Das beiliegende Foto zeigt Frau Margaret Hender in Adelaide, Südaustralien, eine der Initiatoren dieser Bewegung, neben unserem AquaSoli-Vertriebsleiter in Australien, Herrn Ekkehard Groskreutz. Margaret (als Vorsitzende) und Ekkehard (als technischer Berater) arbeiten ebenfalls seit einigen Jahren innerhalb von CORENA (www.corenafund.org.au) zusammen, einer Organisation, die bei der Gestaltung und Finanzierung von Energieeffizienz- und Solarenergieerzeugungs-systemen für gemeinnützige Organisationen auf der Basis von Umlauffonds hilft.

AquaSoli unterstützt den Ansatz der Stadt München voll und ganz, da er die Verpflichtung beinhaltet, bei der Planung und dem Bau neuer Gebäude strenge Richtlinien für Energieeffizienz und Nachhaltigkeit zu befolgen.

Insofern ist AquaSoli stolz darauf, dass die Firmenzentrale in der Birkenleiten 41 in München seit dem Einzug in das renovierte Mühlgebäude im Jahre 2011 klimaneutral betrieben wird mittels Strom und Abwärme von einer 130kW Francis Turbine sowie einer Biopelletheizung.

AquaSoli ready to serve Clients with Projects in Australia

AquaSoli continues to serve Ground Mount Solar Projects in Australia: After several hundred MWp completed with engineering delivered by AquaSoli the success story goes on …

No doubt you are aware of the huge renewable energy potential in Australia.

Through our strategic alliance partner based in Adelaide, South Australia AquaSoli frequently receives project updates directly from participants in the market as well as through industry bodies. While there are still considerable challenges in the areas of regulation, connection and policies, the projections for the next decade and beyond are exciting.

At AquaSoli we have embarked on a medium – to long-term high growth strategy for this market “down under”. We wonder if you would consider our company to provide the same high-quality geo-engineering services, which you have already come to expect from us elsewhere, for your next project in Australia.

To this extent we would appreciate if you would provide us with the contact details of the most appropriate local manager, so that our Australian partner can introduce himself.

We are looking forward to hearing from you.

How the name AquaSoli was born…

How the name AquasSoli was born…

How the name of AquaSoli was born

How the name of AquaSoli was born

The following excursion into Latin language may serve as an explanation, and we thought it may also be a good idea to explain the name in our AquaSoli blog here:

Aqua=Water [lat.], because it plays an important role in and on the soil

[soil strength is influenced by water content, and flood protection is also a topic for AquaSoli

Soli=Genitive from Solum=Soil [lat.]

Sol=Sun [lat.]

i=ingenium [lat.] = invention, ingenuity, mind, understanding, talent => basis for the word “engineer

For the time being in this year we wish you a Merry Christmas and a blessed time with your beloved ones!
