Helagaine: the anti-stress programme for torsion cables in wind turbines

Alongside photovoltaic and hydroelectric power sources, wind farms have rapidly become one of the chief suppliers of renewable energy in Germany. Today’s onshore wind turbines provide between 1.5 and 4 megawatts (MW) of power; offshore installations up to 8 MW. But as the importance of wind power increases, so too do the demands on the performance and reliability of wind turbines. HellermannTyton offers solutions that help operators meet this challenge.

Cabling in wind turbines undergoes enormous strain because the rotor blades … Continue reading
