From the wind turbine to the distribution grids, Siemens has fanned out its solutions for the wind-power sector as broadly as the challenges facing the energy turnaround. From September 15 to 18, the company will be presenting its wind technology at the Husum Wind 2015 trade fair, ranging from generating electricity from wind and feeding power into the grid to solutions for distribution and energy storage.
This year, Siemens’ stand A10 in Hall 2 will focus primarily on cost-cutting and digitalization across the entire wind-power value chain. The company is appearing under the motto: “WINDforce: Adding Value to your Wind Business.”
Siemens will be showing its latest products and developments, starting with the Model SWT-3.3-130 wind turbine which, currently undergoing trial testing, is set to deliver the highest efficiency rate for sites offering low and medium wind speeds already in 2017. Load management systems and energy storage – battery storage systems as well as electrolysis systems – are aimed at lowering future costs of distributing and integrating wind power into the grids. Siemens will also be exhibiting energy-efficient ways in which wind turbines are being automated: The multi-level Wind SCADA System is well suited for wind turbine manufacturers as well as for independent service-providers.
At Husum, Siemens is also presenting busbar trunking systems and transformers, as well as medium and low-voltage switchgear equipment especially designed for use in wind farms ensure safe, reliable, and efficient power distribution and feed into the grid. The company will showcase integrated and harmonized protection, switching, measuring, and monitoring devices that provide efficient distribution. Remote maintenance and modern service concepts help to lower operating costs.
Additionally, Siemens is showing how technical solutions enable sensible further development of established marketing models – from electricity trading to operating reserve. Digitalization offers a wide range of control options with which Siemens is shaping its responses to the challenges of the energy transition.
“The close proximity to our customers Germany makes the Husum Wind exhibition an outstanding event for us,” says Dr. Markus Tacke, CEO of Siemens’ Wind Power and Renewables Division. “There, we show our entire range of solutions for advanced markets in which wind power is already delivering a substantial share of the power supply. At this trade show we focus on technologies that contribute to stabilizing grids and lowering costs.”
