We have extensive knowledge in wind turbine hardware, software and test systems. Our experience encompasses several wind turbine retrofitting projects, going from control systems to new converter boards.
Retrofitting a wind turbine is replacing components in the wind turbine with new components. Usually, it is happening because the old wind turbine is no longer supported and our customer wants to take over the control of the wind turbine.
Retrofitting a wind turbine means that an old turbine gets new components to optimize its' power production or make it easier to maintain or support. The control system (computer and software) is replaced. This may also include the converter controller and associated electronics like gatedrivers, etc.
How we can help you?
Thanks to our experience, we can help in several stages of wind turbine retrofitting projects, such as hardware redesign, software development, test systems, cost-out projects etc.
Our detailed experience in wind turbine control, data collection, monitoring, electrical and converter system expertise, software development for critical systems, test systems and control systems, can help solve the challenges of retrofitting a turbine.
