Safe through the winter: Ice throw and ice fall on wind turbines

How to ensure safety during icing conditions (especially with regard to ice fall and ice throw) – Ice accumulation on wind turbine rotor blades has a crucial impact on operation and maintenance. Lower return due to aerodynamic imbalances as well as safety of the power plant and its surroundings are of central importance.
Regardless of whether a wind turbine is located next to a highway or in the mountains where skiers and hikers pass by – It should be always ensured that service technicians and any trespasser are safe in any turbine operation mode.

Ice detection to optimise your wind turbine

Whitepaper: Ice detection to optimise your wind turbine

One major goal for manufacturers and operators of wind turbines is to achieve the highest possible efficiency by continuously optimising the wind turbines. At the moment, however, operators of wind turbines have to accept annual losses in earnings due to icing in the five-digit Euro range. In this whitepaper, you will learn how to optimise your wind turbine using an ice detection system…
