From start-up to sensor specialist for ice detection

In 2014, after an incubation phase of one year in the Science Park Graz, eologix sensor technology gmbh was founded by Michael Moser, Thomas Schlegl and Hubert Zangl. Already in the winter of 2014/15, our first sensor system was in commercial operation. Several more systems were tested by manufacturers and wind power plant operators. Numerous customers were soon convinced by our retrofittable and thus cost-effective solution for ice detection. Our core product has been patented nationally and internationally since 2013. Today, more than 350 systems for ice detection on wind turbines are in operation worldwide and thus help to reduce downtime and use wind power even more efficiently. Current additional fields of application are all areas, in which ice accumulation has to be detected early on and reliably, such as railway tracks and airplanes. In our headquarters in Graz, our highly motivated and dedicated team of 20 develops and produces the sensor components for our innovative and unique solutions and strives to offer the best service for our customers.
