fos4X GmbH has acquired another investor with Falk Strascheg Holding GmbH (FSH). FSH is covering almost half of the current round of investments, which is supplying fos4X GmbH with an equity inflow of € 2.3 million in total.
Previous investors Bayern Kapital, High-Tech Gründerfonds (HTGF), UnternehmerTUM-Fonds, and Dr. Schulze Consulting are providing the other half of the sum. The increased equity provides security during a key phase for the young technology company. The financial backing supports the stabilisation of business operations during the market launch of the fos4Blade BID ice detection system. This is a safety device for wind turbines that was certified by DNV-GL in September 2014. Several manufacturers are also evaluating the fos4Blade ALR blade load measurement system for possible integration in serial systems, in order to actively reduce the load with individual pitch control.
