Although not as big a show as last year in Atlanta, WINDPOWER 2013 is showing promise at a critical time in the wind industry. Held in Chicago this year, the American Wind Energy Association hosts this three day conference filled with exhibitions, general sessions, and networking. I’ve had the opportunity to meet with some of the industry’s leading companies, whom I’d say, are optimistic about the future of wind development. Here are a few featured products from my booth visits.
Henkel/Loctite featured its polyurethanes for blade tip repair, erosion, and impact damage. The polyurethanes are designed for better speed and performance.
The Revenue Metering and Protection Section of S&C’s Compact Substation is equipped with three revenue metering systems for feeders, three protection systems for feeders, test switches, a battery charger, battery packs, and DIN-standard rail mounting for control devices. The substation can be shipped in weeks.
American Roller Bearings showcased its bearings for wind turbine generators, gearboxes, and main drive shafts.
Hytorc’s new bolting systems focus on efficiency by saving money, time, and increases safety, says the company.
