SenGermany: Mr. Magauer, we are delighted that you will speak on the occasion of the 3rd German-Senegalese Economic Summit on 4 November 2016 in Duisburg. From October 10 to 12, you attended the international conference and trade fair "Hydro 2016" in Montreux (Switzerland), where you spoke - amongst others - with experts from Africa and Senegal. Can you give us more detailed information in that respect?
Peter Magauer: Yes, of course. But first of all, I am happy about the invitation to your 3rd German-Senegalese Economic Summit, since Africa has moved in the center of interest for us. We are one of the leading suppliers to hydroelectric power plants, we manufacture turbines and generators along with all accessories. Here, at the Ravensburg location, we manage with our staff the turbine manufacturing as a very important part of production, starting from the project planning through engineering up to finishing and assembly.
