TransnetBW and RCM Technologies to Partner on Energy Transition

Market-leading utility TransnetBW and RCM Technologies, Inc. enter a new partnership for critical infrastructure projects to modernize the transmission grid in Europe

RCM Technologies, Inc. (NasdaqGM: RCMT) hosted a TransnetBW executive team visit to North America with stops in Houston, Washington DC, and New York City while solidifying the start of a long-term partnership with RCM Technologies GmbH to deliver engineering and technology services for grid modernization projects.

Dr. Werner Götz, CEO of TransnetBW, and Mr. Bradley Vizi, Executive Chairman and CEO of RCM Technologies, Inc. signed a contract for upcoming projects, including Grünkraut substations, demonstrating the confidence of both parties in furthering their combined objective to design and operate critical electric transmission grid infrastructure builds.

TransnetBW sent a delegation to the United States from December 4 to 8 of 2023 to explore multiple opportunities and RCM’s capabilities for future collaborations. This visit included tours of two high-voltage AIS substations in Texas and a medium voltage GIS substation in Washington DC, where RCM had significant project responsibility.
