Wind Energy

Wind Energy

We`ve got the hang of it.

Situation.

Renewable energy production is becoming increasingly important, especially wind turbines. With a hub height of 60 meters and 1.5 megawatts of power, wind turbines that were originally considered to be enormous are now standard and built worldwide using German technology. In order for the turbines to work perfectly as well as cost-effectively, the optimum balance between torque and speed must be found. For this, it is necessary to be able to adjust the rotor blades. It’s not enough to turn the head of the turbine into or out of the wind. In case of high wind speeds, rotor blade adjustment is an additional way to apply the brakes effectively and an important safety aspect.

PROBLEM.

All three rotor blades must always be aligned synchronously, because excessive forces can otherwise act on a single blade. This means the rotor blade adjustment must have a central control system that is also guaranteed to function even in case of power failure. To make the task even more difficult, the hub is only accessible from the outside. On the shaft of the rotor, only a few contacts are available on the slip ring for establishing a connection. A control system via the hub and accommodation of rotor blade technology in the nacelle are therefore not possible. On-site installation in the hub is not practical and economical due to the height and difficult accessibility.

SOLUTION.

The entire rotor blade adjustment system is supplied with electrical power just through the slip rings, so only a few contacts of the slip ring are necessary. A central control box coordinates the rotor blade positions, which are each adjusted by their own drive control. This includes a battery pack to maintain control capability in case of power failure. Everything is modular and ready to plug in. All connections are pre-tested on a specially designed test station with contact force monitoring, eliminating errors and ensuring fast commissioning.

The central control module connects the individual drive controls with a single connector kit in each case. These align the rotor blade with a servomotor. The pre-fabricated installation can be quickly incorporated into the hub on the ground. Supply, signals and bus are consolidated in a single robust plug connector. The rotor blade is completely installed electrically in no time.

Only a few days left until the start of Hanover Fair 2024.

Chains, cables and cable assemblies from a single source – that is the motto of the HELUKABEL Group at this year’s Hanover Fair. As a subsidiary, we will be there with our high-quality, industrial-grade cable assemblies for mechanical and plant engineering.

What can you expect at the stand?

Durable drag chain cables with a robust TPE sheath and the new stainless steel version of the tried-and-tested SLE cable drag chain.

Curious to find out more? Then visit us at the Hanover Fair 2024. Our stand is located in hall 13, stand D88.

We look forward to welcoming you to our stand in Hall 13, Stand D88 and wish you a successful trade fair visit!

Finally it happened!

MOVING INTO OUR NEW COMPANY BUILDING

Finally it happened!

After a construction phase of ten months we moved into our new headquarters. The moving procedure went well and we continued our daily business as usual on Monday.

We thank our staff who played it´s part in ensuring that the relocation went without any delay and complications.

The new factory premises now offer many advantages both for the production of our LED industrial lights and for the production of our cable assemblies. By expanding the space, we will be able to produce even more efficiently for you in the future and at the same time further expand our service for you.

Our topping out ceremony

OUR TOPPING OUR CEREMONY

The structural work of the new headquarter is done.

On June 08, 2018 our topping out ceremony took place. The shell at Bechterdisser Straße in Bielefeld is done, now the refinishing of the interior is going to be prepared, as well as all technical installation. The obligatory topping out saying was held by our building company Goldbeck that, as a tradition, smashed the shot glasses together with the general management – for good luck in the new building.
Now, it is time for the final spurt to enable a punctual move.

Groundbreaking ceremony 2018

Groundbreaking ceremony

We are investing €6 million in our Bielefeld location

At the official ground-breaking ceremony on 6/3/2018, CEO and founder Frank Sangel cut the ribbon for the start of construction of the company’s headquarters on Bechterdisser Strasse in Bielefeld. The new building is an important step in achieving our growth objectives. In addition to the larger production area and office space, there is the option to add additional production capacity to the new building. The new location will also merge the previously separate manufacturing facilities of cable assembly and industrial luminaires. A total of €1 million of the investment volume will be used for new machine technology and further optimising production process. We are proud of that.
