Minimum upgrades for maximum effect
Compared to a new product introduction, staying within the SWT-6.0-154 design envelope means the 7 MW can provide a smooth transition for future projects in numerous ways. Product risk is reduced. Certification processes will be shorter. And the balance-of-plant supply chain impact from turbine configuration is minimal. In essence, we are reducing risk not only on a turbine level but, by extending on our proven platform, we bring valuable synergies to project development. Add a reduced need for turbine positions while increasing the power output and we arrive at a minimum upgrade for maximum effect.
Direct drive technology reduces the number of rating and wear-prone components in offshore turbines, making them simpler to maintain. Efficiency is improved by using a permanent magnet generator, which needs no excitation power. These and other design simplifications keep the weight low and dimensions small, lowering transport and installation costs.
The High Wind Ride Through (HWRT) system is a breakthrough in stabilizing energy output. When the wind speed is higher than 25 meters per second, wind turbines typically shut down for self-protection. Those equipped with the HWRT system will slowly ramp down power output instead, enabling smoother production ramp-down and thereby a more reliable electrical grid.
The development of IntegralBlade® technology enables each fiberglass-reinforced epoxy blade to be cast in one piece. This process eliminates weaker areas at glued joints and produces blades of optimum quality, strength, and reliability.
Turbine sensors continuously transmit data to the Siemens Gamesa Diagnostic Center, enabling the early detection of anomalies and preventing potential failures. By analyzing vibration patterns, we can optimize your service plan and anticipate repairs before serious damage occurs.
The solutions we provide are driven by the benefits they deliver. This applies as much to our pursuit of absolute safety as to maximizing your return.
