FAMUR, a part of Grenevia, is consistently growing competencies in the area of new green technologies. Following the acquisition of Total Wind PL in July 2023, it took another step toward diversification and decided to establish the FAMUR Gearo division within the Famur segment.
The FAMUR Gearo division was established on the basis of the resources and assets of FAMUR Machinery located in the Katowice , and brings together all activities carried out in the field of wind power solutions and industrial gear manufacturing.
FAMUR has been consistently building up its position in the renewable energy sources (RES) sector, taking advantage of opportunities arising from Poland’s energy transition and the global trend toward low-carbon economies. The establishment of the FAMUR Gearo division constitutes an opening to new market sectors and a consequence of activities related to building Famur’s competence in the area of green technologies. The object of FAMUR Gearo’s activities will be the development of the potential in the area of wind power and applying its experience in the production of industrial gears. The offer includes overhaul, testing and technical consulting, as well as gearbox service.
Following last year’s acquisition of Total Wind PL, the offer have been complemented by the installation of wind turbines, the replacement of major components, as well as maintenance services, allowing the company to take full advantage of its market potential.
“FAMUR has been involved in the energy industry for years, which naturally makes us aspire to a strong position in the rapidly emerging renewable energy sector. In our many years of experience, we have become experts in the design and construction of equipment for the Management Board industry, including advanced industrial gears ,” says Miroslaw Bendzera, President of the Management Board of FAMUR SA. “Consistently increasing our involvement in the area of wind energy resulted in the decision to create the FAMUR Gearo division, as a focal point for all activities related to the development of this sector. This is another step in the implementation of the strategy of transforming Famur into an entity participating in the green transition of the economy,” he adds.
Paweł Majcherkiewicz, who has been a Member of the Management Board of FAMUR SA and a Member of the Supervisory Board of Total Wind PL since 1 February 2024, will be responsible for FAMUR Gearo’s operations. Paweł Majcherkiewicz has been professionally involved with TDJ family companies since 2007, including working at Grenevia SA (formerly FAMUR SA) from 2007 to 2013, handling finance and investor relations, serving as Vice-President of the Management Board of FAMAK SA from 2014 to 2023, and then rejoining Famur as director of new market development.
“With the acquisition of Total Wind PL, we have created a comprehensive and unique offering on the market. At our manufacturing plant in Katowice-Piotrowice, we overhaul wind turbine gearboxes and test them using our dynamometer facility. Now, together with Total Wind PL, we are able to offer their replacement and basic maintenance services. We are also in the process of developing our own gearbox warehouse to meet our customers’ needs even better. Wind energy is an area that will develop very dynamically in Poland in the coming years – and FAMUR Gearo wants to take an active part in this growth, systematically building and developing the scope of our offer for this sector,” says Paweł Majcherkiewicz.
The Grenevia Group integrates and develops the operations of four business segments. In addition to Famur, they include: large-scale photovoltaics and PV solutions for business concentrated in Projekt Solartechnik; battery systems, power storage and electromobility as part of IMPACT Clean Power Technology; modern automation equipment for the industry, as well as solutions for the power distribution industry as Elgór+Hansen. Currently, the Group’s operations are focused on building the value proposition of its various segments, based on the Sustainable Development Strategy for 2023-2030.
