RENEWABLES ENERGY

 

Geothermal Energy

Geothermal energy is the term given to heat stored beneath the upper part of the earth’s crust. This heat is permanently available regardless of weather conditions and the time of day. It is an attractive and economical source of energy since it is classified as regenerative and affords emission-free generation of power. Geothermal power plants use the heat stored in the earth to drive a steam turbine generator set. Compared to coal fired power plants, each installed megawatt of geothermal power station capacities can reduce CO2 emissions by around 6,500 tonnes per year. This is why some countries offer subsidies for their construction or for the electrical power from geothermal plants.

Comprehensive solutions for small hydropower plants

 

Making hydro energy an investment that pays off

 

 

Renewable energy is the linchpin of tomorrow’s energy mix. Solar, wind, biomass, and, of course, water are vital elements for an environmentally compatible global energy supply.

In view of the need to balance economical needs and ecological awareness, hydropower stands out in terms of profitability, sustainability, and availability. Small hydropower plants in particular have proven to be a functional and intelligent source of energy.

Distributed power generation from hydro sources increases independence from fuel price developments and carbon emissions costs, potentially generating additional revenue from carbon emissions credits.

Wind Turbines

Rotor

The rotor blades for offshore turbines are made of fiberglass-reinforced epoxy, manufactured using the proprietary IntegralBlade process. Unlike conventional wind turbine blades, the IntegralBlades are cast in one piece in a closed process. This process leaves no weak points at glue joints and provides optimum quality. The aerodynamic design represents state-of-the-art wind turbine technology, offering maximum energy extraction from any available wind resource and the structural design lives up to the usual Siemens safety factors, in addition to all industry codes and standards.

The blades are mounted on double-row pitch bearings, fitted to a large rotor hub. The pitch actuation system is hydraulic, offering maximum robustness and safety. Like the turbine itself, the blades are designed to last.

Nacelle

The nacelles of the offshore turbines are ideally suited for severe offshore operating conditions.

Major components such as the main shaft, the gearbox and the yaw system are all of particularly heavy dimensions.

The automatic lubrication systems have redundant lubricant reserves to enable continued operation, even if scheduled maintenance is delayed by weather.

The nacelle canopy is metallic to provide optimum lightning and fire protection. All safety systems are fail-safe and have layers of redundancy. Fully integrated climate control and comprehensive offshore-grade surface protection contribute to long service life.

Overall performance is well-proven and every detail is designed using market leading engineering practices.

Tower

The offshore turbines are normally mounted on tubular steel towers, fitted with internal personnel hoists. A prefabricated power module is located at the bottom of the tower and provides the platform for the power converter, the turbine transformer and the medium voltage switchgear

Grid performance
Grid stability requirements grow as more wind power is fed into the grid. It also sets the standard in the field of grid compliance.

Power conversion is implemented with unique NetConverter system.

This system uses full conversion of the power generated, efficiently decoupling generator and turbine dynamics from the grid. The NetConverter system offers maximum flexibility in the turbine response to voltage and frequency control, fault ride-through, and output adjustment.

As a result, turbines comply with all relevant grid codes
