As a result of its efforts, the Group offers electronic power and control products and rotating electric machines in all the sectors in which it operates.
The role played by R&D at the Group is clearly evidenced by the scale of investment in it every year: it accounts for around 5% of turnover, and that R&D gives rise to new products for use by our customers.
We have pioneering R&D labs at our facilities in Zamudio and Beasain. These laboratories put the latest power electronics, au-tomation and rotating electric machines technologies to the test. They enable us to work with power and voltage levels comparable to those found in real-life applications, and thus to optimise our results.
The Ingeteam Group’s approach to R&D can be seen in IRDE (Ingeteam R&D Europe), our business R&D unit, which was set up to be a benchmark R&D unit for power electronics, regulation and control technologies with applications in renewable genera-tion, power electronics applied to grids, industrial automation and maritime and rail transport.
