Now special system checks to identify optimization potential and measures for increasing yield offers seebWIND for wind turbines of type MD70/77. Osnabruck, 07.10.2013. The vendor-independent service company of seebWIND service GmbH has expanded its engineering facilities. Now the company for wind turbines of type MD70/77 offers special system checks to identify optimization potential and measures for increasing yield. The MD70/77 1.5 megawatt wind turbine is one of the most widely used its power class in Europe. The wind turbine manufacturers focus generally on the development of new products, rather than to optimize existing systems”, explains seebWIND Managing Director Holger Hamel.
The MD 70/77 was built around for years from fuhrlander, Nordex and REpower. seebWIND to ensure that the earning potential will be exploited. The system check check the seebWIND technicians, for example, the setting of the rotor blades and the operating parameters as well as the Functioning of sensitive components. Special attention is paid to the wind tracking. Finally up to five per cent can be alone with their optimization in the year achieve excess returns. An optimized wind tracking also spares the leaves, reducing vibrations caused by bias lead.
Also, mechanical loads on the total system can be reduced, if the engine House is kept clean in the wind. Site-specific optimized alongside the optimisation of tracking, blade adjustment and components but also the optimization of a site can be useful. The manufacturers have their wind turbines”usually a standard parameter set that is adapted to the respective location only in exceptional cases, explains Dirk Hennig, Deputy Head of service at seebWIND. In the Highlands but, for example, the wind direction change much faster than on the Baltic Sea. In the context of our revenue optimization we adjust the parameters also to site-specific conditions.” About the seebWIND Service GmbH the seebWIND service GmbH with headquarters in Osnabruck and three service centers is a vendor-independent service provider for wind turbines, specializes in the manufacturer fuhrlander, Nordex and REpower systems.
