Introducing the SG 11.0-193 DD Flex and the SG 8.0-167 DD Flex
Technological highlights
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.
