Expertise & experience
The Factory Group has been active for 25 years. What started in the early 1990s with an installation for farmers in the Netherlands, grew into complete systems for the electrification of villages. Purchasing an energy system is a long-term investment that requires professional maintenance. The Group maintains around 350 wind turbines ranging from 300 W to 1 MW.
A to Z
We supply complete systems. That means we can help you from A to Z. We believe that a solid system starts with a good insight into your energy consumption. We map this as good as possible in order to make a suitable system design. We are able to provide a full service installation, even with maintenance (if necessary).
The products we use in our systems (panels, pumps, charge controllers, batteries) have been carefully selected. We only work with leading A brands. We stand for reliability and quality. In all of our designs we try to take into account that the system can be used as optimally as possible, while guaranteeing a long service life.
We have an off-grid demonstration and test center in the Netherlands. Here can we make set-ups with wind/generator/solar panels, to simulate the situation of the client as well as possible. The latest products are also tested here. In addition, we have our own electrical and mechanical workshop for carrying out repairs and building new systems.
