In 2014, Swistec GmbH celebrated its 25th anniversary. During this time frame Swistec grew to a small business with more than 20 employees. Swistec_all *
In addition to Swistec’s expert knowledge related to ripple-control tasks, many of our customers also value the customer-specific knowledge that the Swistec team has due to the fact that most employees have been with Swistec and thus have worked with its customers for years, often even centuries.

Weekend-Emergency-Mission of Swistec‘s mobile transmitter at the Stadtwerke Ansbach GmbH

It’s Friday shortly before noon when an emergency call of the Stadtwerke Ansbach GmbH reaches Swistec GmbH: Ansbach’s transmitter (manufactured 1996) failed completely.
Swistec acts immediately. Its mobile transmitter, installed in a big hanger, is driven to Ansbach, an about 400 km drive on the Autobahn. The same evening, Swistec’s mobile transmitter ensures that the system is operational again.

Like at the Gemeindliche Werke Hengersberg and at the Überlandwerk Rhön GmbH, the mobile transmitter with local control unit guarantees a smooth operation after a system break-down   –   even on a weekend.

We glady provide our mobile transmitter to our customers as long as it is available and not in use at a different customer’s site.

Mr. Hecht from the Stadtwerke Ansbach GmbH has kindly sent us a statement about what has happened from his point of view:

“On 27.09.13 at about 6:00 the Landys und Gyr ripple-control transmitter type FQD 4.1, which provides the area AN-Ost, failed. After the first trouble shooting we contacted a technician from the company Swistec who helped us troubleshooting. Since the old transmitter remained down, Swistec offered us to use their mobile ripple-control transmitter in order to re-establish our transmission area.
After a long drive from Bornheim to Ansbach, Mr. Hoepfner arrived at Ansbach with the mobile transmitter at 6:30 pm. The transmitter was hooked up without any problems.
After a few settings and measurements the mobile ripple-control transmitter was operational at 9 pm.
We can only praise the company Swistec for a fast, uncomplicated emergency maintenance.”
