Siemens exhibits digitalisation and efficiency at Husum Wind 2017
Under the slogan "Creating the most from wind – discover the value of digitalisation", digitalisation and engineering efficiency are main themes of this year's Siemens presentation at Husum Wind. This focuses on the Simatic WinCC Open Architecture Scada System, the cloud-based MindSphere open IoT operating system, and industrial communication: for efficient storage and analysis of large quantities of data, from condition monitoring to the operational optimisation of wind energy plants.
The company is exhibiting a wide range of tools for engineering efficiency. The focus on engineering efficiency also includes a bus way system for safe, efficient power transmission, compact, gas-insulated medium voltage switchgear, components and solutions for the pitch and yaw system, and a new series of compact wind converters, specifically for wind turbines up to 10 MW.
At the fair, Siemens is also exhibiting its new portfolio of wind converters, which have to meet ever higher requirements – in respect of network compatibility, efficiency and reliability – in their central role in the generation of wind energy. The new Sinamics W180 series of compact devices with high availability and efficiency is especially suitable for wind turbines up to 10 MW.
