Fabian Zelenka, COO fos4X GmbH
The next wave of innovation in wind energy is powered by sensors and information. In 10 years, every new rotor blade will be equipped with several sensors that allow a direct measurement of the structural parameters.
The operation of wind turbines and parks can be significantly optimized with the help of moments, frequencies and forms resulting from these signals. So rotor blade sensing is the foundation of future digital business models.
Rotor blade sensing combines two strategically important topics of all wind turbine manufacturers: aerodynamics and turbine control. For this fos4X is a reliable partner.
„It’s a lot of fun to see your own company grow and lead it into a great future.“
„Reliability, costs and innovation are not contradictory terms for our understanding.“
„Delivery reliability, quality, efficiency are our maxims – but sometimes it’s about making things easy.“
„The trusting relationships with our customers and partners are the alpha and omega of our success.“
„With our data from the wind turbine, we deliver customer benefits along the entire value chain.“
“We provide sensors and solutions to drive smart wind energy”
We want to play an important role in the digitization of wind industry. The levers of classical mechanical engineering and turbine construction are well-developed. Consolidation and production shifting are certainly suited to lower energy production costs. We are convinced that a closer collaboration between turbine manufacturers and suppliers, consistent recording of “smart data”, open interfaces and software for optimizing the operation are the better solutions for the industry.
With this conviction, a lot of domain knowledge, fantastic measurement technology and modern data analysis methodology, we help the wind industry into the digital age.

“Quality assurance through defined processes”
Quality and safety-related activities are planned, controlled and monitored throughout. In this way, we ensure that, in addition to the quality requirements of our customers, the applicable legal and official regulations are also observed.
We have been ISO9001 certified since 2012, and we have been ISO9001: 2015 since 2018. These and other certificates can be found here. Currently, we are also one of the “BEST OF” winner of the Industry Award 2018 in the category Optical Technologies with our fos4Blade sensor platform.
With our innovative fiber optic measurement technology and state-of-the-art data processing, we shape the market for rotor blade sensing. We are a young team of around 50 measuring and wind power experts with a dynamic culture. We are always looking for new colleagues who want to develop the technology with us and realize maximum customer benefits.
We are pleased to meet you!
