Mersen has once again obtained a contract with the operator of the London underground in time for the 2012 Olympic Games

This contract fits within the group's strategy of developing services for electrical engines and power generators

Mersen has developed expertise which reduces the downtime of rolling stock. This expertise proved

decisive: with 400km of track and 270 stations in London to manage, London Underground must
accelerate the pace of engine overhaul while conducting its maintenance operations solely during the
night shift, in order to ensure irreproachable service during the Olympic Games which will run from 27 July
to 12 August.

This contract fits within the group's strategy of developing services for electrical engines and power
generators – a strategy that Mersen has already rolled out successfully in the wind power industry in
North America. Thanks to this approach, Mersen is able to highlight its expertise to its customers and to
offer a comprehensive range of products.

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.
