Higher, more robust, more reliable: Parallel to the growing requirements for wind turbines, the requirements for monitoring sensors grow as well. But how can wind sensor manufacturers fulfil these wishes? The ideal sensor has both a high degree of precision and a long, maintenance-free useful life under the most extreme of conditions. While mechanical anemometers were initially used in turbines, most producers around the world have since switched to ultrasonic anemometers without moving parts as part of their...
Predictable and reliable, hydrokinetic energy is a promising lever for the energy transition. HydroQuest has studied opportunities for hydrokinetic turbine development since 2010. Our ambition is to become a global reference in the development of innovative technology to harness hydrokinetic resources. This is a new alternative energy supply as promoted by the Energy Transition law to encourage renewable growth.
Carbon fibre is a unique material and is found in many high-tech industries such as sports car manufacture, wind turbine blade construction and sports equipment. The production of carbon fibre from acrylic fibre involves the baking of the fibre in ovens, which gives emissions of gas species including Hydrogen Cyanide (HCN). Protea’s range of gas analysers can provide a solution for the periodic or continuous measurement of gases from carbon fibre production in order to give reportable emissions values as...
We offer expertise in the wind industry with experience at all scales of wind energy from micro turbines to offshore systems. As active members of the industry, we are represented on RenewableUK Standards Groups, IEC technical working groups and MCS working groups, developing standards and certification requirements for the industry.
We are working with major turbine OEMs, energy utilities and technical service specialists to reduce operations and maintenance costs and increase availability of wind turbines through the deployment of Limpet safety systems. Key applications for Limpet® systems include:
Modern wind turbines include a variety of components from BRÜCK. Our products are found in the power transmission in the form of bearings, flanges, gear and generator parts as well as in the pitch and gondola housing. Due to our vast depth in manufacturing and the enormous production capacity, we can cover the usual in the wind power industry requirements and high demands in the situation. Many global players in the wind energy sector benefit from BRÜCK proposed solutions for structural design of...

The debate around the phase-out of nuclear power has highlighted it once again: there`s no getting away from renewable energy. Improvements in efficiency and performance are the challenges that manufacturers must now face. And it is precisely here that the innovative adhesive technology from Lohmann plays an important role. The more reliably and efficiently components are connected, the longer-lived and more economical the overall system is – irrespective of whether energy is obtained from solar systems or...
Wind power is now the world`s fastest growing alternative energy source and has also become one of the most rapidly expanding industries. For over 40 years, Climatronics has been a leading developer and manufacturer of wind measurement sensor technology to the growing wind power generation market. We offer precision weather sensors for wind energy applications such as wind resource assessment, wind turbine generator control, and wind farm performance management.
Wind energy is a renewable energy source that is being harnessed globally to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and the associated impact on our environment. However, the environmental impact of the turbine noise and the blade pass noise is a concern that is carefully monitored and generally regulated. It is very important to be able to acquire accurate acoustical data for analysis, noise impact predictions, and regulatory compliance. Effective noise monitoring is a very valuable tool to manage a wind farm&rsquo...
Limpet Technology is embarking on the development of a new access solution that focuses on allowing technicians and loads to transfer between vessels and offshore wind turbines more safely and in higher sea states. The overarching technical objective is to deliver a solution that can be proven to deliver safe and reliable access to and from offshore wind turbines in sea states up to and beyond 2.5 metres Significant Height (Hs).
Wind Energy has brought new life to the wind measurement industry, including SoDAR. With wind turbine hub heights reaching over 100m and blade spans of up to 80m, measurements across the entire blade swept area are becoming critical. SoDAR provides that information and ASC`s SoDARs offer more.
With modular design and robust operating capabilities, Firefly’s Hybrid Systems are easily retrofitted onto existing infrastructure, resulting in reduced diesel use, longer servicing intervals and extended DG operating life.
As the world addresses the challenges of global warming green energy production and in particular wind energy generation has increased significantly. Biral can provide sensors for the control of aviation obstacle light intensity, wind speed measurement and site assessment.
The Deutscher Wetterdienst (German Meteorological Service – DWD) has certified the VPF-710, SWS-100 and SWS-200 sensors as suitable for use in visibility controlled wind turbine obstruction light systems.
Our Power Pallet biomass gasifier genset, when used with the grid-tie module, can be integrated with an existing 3-phase AC microgrid that includes intermittent electrical sources such as solar panels or small wind turbines.
