Sus­tainab­le off­shore ener­gy for future generations

MORE ENER­GY FROM WIND POWER

High wind speeds on the coasts enab­le ener­gy yiel­ds from off­shore wind farms on a pre­vious­ly unach­iev­a­ble sca­le. The reli­able and cost-effi­ci­ent ope­ra­ti­on of the­se tur­bi­nes has only beco­me pos­si­ble by deve­lo­ping extre­me­ly robust high-per­for­mance mate­ri­als. Tech­ni­cal down­ti­me and necessa­ry repairs are an enor­mous cost factor.

Inno­va­ti­ve com­po­si­te mate­ri­als for wind generators

The insu­la­ti­on sys­tem for lar­ge wind gene­ra­tors recent­ly deve­lo­ped by Von Roll can easi­ly resist the hig­hest TEAM loads (Ther­mal-Electri­cal-Ambi­ent-Mecha­ni­cal). Our Sami­c­abond® Plus is a game-chan­ger for the next genera­ti­on of lar­ge off­shore wind generators.

And wind tur­bi­nes are get­ting big­ger and big­ger. The rea­son for this: As the length of the rotor bla­des grows, the ener­gy out­put also grows expo­nen­ti­al­ly. Lea­ding manu­fac­tu­rers in wind ener­gy are cur­r­ent­ly instal­ling our Sami­c­abond® Plus sys­tem in the worl­d’s lar­gest wind gene­ra­tors. This is crea­ting the most power­ful oce­an-based wind plat­forms to date, with an unmat­ched capa­ci­ty fac­tor of over 60 %.

 

Size to impress

» A sin­gle turn of the rotor sup­plies a house with electri­ci­ty for two days.
 
» Over 240 meters, as high as Big Ben, the Sta­tue of Liber­ty & the Arc de Triom­phe combined.
 
» At over 100 meters, the rotor bla­des are lon­ger than a jum­bo jet.
 
» A sin­gle wind tur­bi­ne powers more than 15,000 homes.
 
» One tur­bi­ne saves 50,000 tons of CO2 emis­si­ons per year.
