Freqcon, based in Rethem, Lower Saxony, is a fast-growing hidden champion and pioneer in the field of energy storage solutions and converter technologies for renewable energy sources. The energy transformation resulting from the expanding diversification of energy sources such as gas, wind, solar, biomass, and others, along with the progressing electrification (electric vehicles, heat pumps, etc.) imposes an increasing load on power grids. For companies, this means an increased risk in terms of security of supply. Freqcon's systems enable its customers from industry and the energy sector to ensure a stable, uninterruptible power supply, reduce electricity costs and control different power sources.
Norbert Hennchen: “As the founder, I am pleased to have found the right partner in PREMIUM Equity Partners so that the successful development of Freqcon can continue as an independent company.The professional and trustful cooperation with PREMIUM, including industry expertise, has convinced me that in this partnership the company can be further developed in an optimal way. Therefore, I am also looking forward to a close cooperation in the future.”
