Customer specific solutions for the wind industry

Nowadays, the wind industry energy sector is faced with the challenge of meeting growing profitability requirements. Turbine manufacturers are continuously seeking possibilities to reduce the LCOE (levelized cost of energy). Weidmüller meets this demand with reliable components and customised solutions to cut down the capital and operational expenditures. Further trends are condition monitoring systems and data driven business models like Data Analytics. In these fields of automation and digitalisation Weidmüller is able to provide tried and tested solutions to reduce downtimes and increase yield.

Product highlights for Wind

BOLTcontrol - Bolt breakage detection system for wind turbines

Monitor blade bearing bolts safely, permanently and easily

BOLTcontrol is a monitoring system that detects broken bolts in wind turbines. The system prevents consequential damage as broken bolts are held securely in place.

  • Prevention of consequential damage
  • Ensure safe continued operation
  • Quick and easy to retrofit

Rotor blade monitoring with BLADEcontrol®

Your benefits at a glance

Cost efficiency, high levels of revenue and plant safety are the most important factors during the operation of wind turbines. BLADEcontrol® continuously records the condition of each rotor blade individually and perceives even minor changes. The risk of expensive repairs is reduced, and the economic efficiency of the entire wind energy plant increases.

  • Operational optimisation and life time extension
  • Increased turbine availability
  • Additional yield through reduced downtimes
  • Predictable repairs
