In the coming years, the paXos team will manage a new major project. We will handle the project management, project controlling and construction supervision for the construction of a paper mill in Bitterfeld. With our comprehensive project management know-how, our many years of experience from other industries, especially the automotive industry, as well as a highly motivated, dynamic team, we would like to lead this exciting project together with our customer to success. Already at the beginning of June, the starting signal will be given. We are very much looking forward to this new challenge and a trusting cooperation with our new customer!
At this year's SmartCity Cologne conference titled "Quartier 4.0 - The smart district of tomorrow", the paXos team and RheinEnergie competed in a start-up slam with business founders in the form of short presentations. With our innovation, the solar roof tile, we achieved a terrific 2nd place and experienced a great response and enthusiasm for our product.
At this year's 11th company run in Cologne, the paXos running team decimated by short-term failures started highly motivated despite the rainfall before the start into the 5.7 km long circuit around the Fühlinger See. Spurred on by a beautiful rainbow, which ended right in the lake, they all reached the finishing line with excellent running times. We congratulate all runners of the paXos team on this great performance and look forward to the next joint event!
This year we have celebrated the 3rd paXos birthday in bright sunshine with a team event in Monheim am Rhein. Freshly fortified with a delicious birthday cake we went on a city safari through Monheim am Rhein. So our new company headquarters was once again intensively explored and we learned a lot about the history and sights of the city. We thank the whole team very much for this enjoyable afternoon and the successful years together!
The paXos team is already getting ready for the upcoming soccer World Cup and participated for the first time and very successfully in the Cologne Sportspark Cup, a tournament for sponsors of the 3rd league SC Fortuna Köln. Our team entered the second round with 2 wins and 2 defeats and convinced here with a superb 3-1 victory. Unfortunately, in the quarterfinals we dropped out against the later tournament winner SwissLife Select. We are very proud of this great result of our team!
Together with our partner RheinEnergie, we have presented the prototypes of our solar roof tile (photovoltaic + solar thermal energy) and our patented downpipe with a complete roof system at the SHK fair in Essen.
Together with our partner RheinEnergie, we have presented the prototypes of our solar roof tile and have introduced the roof concept with a patented downpipe at the Dach + Holz International fair in Cologne. Particularly interesting were the numerous discussions with roofers and potential production partners for our roof system. We are impressed with the great interest and very positive feedback on our products.
From 06th February until 08th February 2018 we have presented the concept study for a sustainable solution for energy generation on roofs of existing buildings in the form of a solar roof tile in conjunction with a complete roof system together with our partner RheinEnergie at the E-world energy & water trade fair in Essen.
At the trade fair, the prototypes of the solar roof tile were presented to the public for the first time:
The NRW Minister for Economic Affairs, Innovation, Digitalization and Energy, Prof. Dr. med. Andreas Pinkwart, and the NRW Minister of the Environment, Agriculture, Nature and Consumer Protection, Mrs. Christina Schulze Föcking, showed great interest in our product:
The close contact with RheinEnergie since 2015 culminates in an extensive partnership with the conclusion of a cooperation and technology purchase agreement for our innovation, the solar roof tile with roof system. With this agreement RheinEnergie secures the patent rights of our innovation and at the same time invests very extensively in our further development of these technologies up to series production. The next milestone in the cooperation is to build and operate a model roof by the middle of the year. In addition, it is intended to set up a joint venture company for the production and sale of the solar roof tiles and accessories in the future.
We are delighted that RheinEnergie sees the great potential of our innovation and the considerable advantages over conventional solutions and would like to launch this forward-looking product together with us.
The first prototypes of our solar roof tile are finished. They were manufactured by Continental on behalf of RheinEnergie and will soon be presented to the public for the first time.
The patented "snap-in system" convinces with its simple and quick handling, enables a completely safe laying by the roofer and saves installation costs.
