Dedicated products for wind turbine applications
Today, the increasing energy demand and the need for a cleaner environment, has resulted in heavily investments in renewable energy world wide like Wind Turbines. As the demand for sustainable energy increases, there is a growing need for highly efficient, robust and reliable wind turbines. The proven reliability of our products helps secure the optimal uptime of the turbines throughout their life.
Danfoss Industrial Automation provides sensors, transmitters, and switches for almost all applications in the nacelles of wind turbines, such as:
- Cooling system - Ensure optimum operating conditions
- Gear box – ensures the right speed of the generator according to the current wind speed
- Hydraulic systems – controls the pitch, yaw and brake of the wind turbine
- Wind power conversion
The general trend towards larger wind turbines at remote sites, often offshore, places new demands on the turbine equipment and sets new standards for maintenance during the turbine life cycle. Furthermore, the extremely harsh environments of the offshore wind farms lead to increased risk of pressure pulsation peaks and vibrations occurring in the ever larger wind turbines. This calls for ultimate performance of all turbine components.
In order to ensure long and maintenance-free service life it is imperative to choose nacelle components that are designed particularly for use in heavy-duty hydraulic applications and protected by acid-resistant stainless steel (AISI 316) casings to avoid corrosion in marine environments. When it comes to reliable products for wind turbine applications, Danfoss Industrial Automation has you covered.
Industrial temperature sensors
The Danfoss range of temperature sensors for industrial purposes is based on decades of global experience within the marine industry and in refrigeration plants - undoubtedly some of the toughest environments around. Even in these demanding surroundings you can trust our products; they have a long life thanks to their robust design.
Industrial solenoid valves
Solenoid valve bodies and electrical coils are normally supplied separately and then combined. They are assembled quickly and simply without tools, providing optimum product flexibility and availability. The solenoid valves are also available as assembled units if required.
Wind power conversion
The Danfoss power stacks reliably convert the kinetic energy from the wind turbine blades into a form that can be fed directly into the electrical power grid. This ensures that maximum energy is harvested from your wind turbine whilst offering durable and dependable electricity supply.
