REpower Wind Power Plants: Top Performance in Any Climate
The perfect operating conditions for wind power plants are temperatures between -20 and 35 degrees of Celsius. As wind blows everywhere, however, REpower has developed special wind turbines that deliver maximum performance even in the extreme climates of Australia, Canada and parts of the United States.
Special Solutions for Cold and Heat
In particular, the converter of a wind power plant should be safe from overheating. Merely dissipating its heat is not a sufficient solution to this. The component must be actively cooled down. Therefore we have designed a special hot climate version that is equipped with additional breather assemblies to ensure optimal wind turbine performance up to 40 degrees of Celsius.
For locations such as Canada, with temperatures falling below -20 degrees, we have also come up with an adequate design. REpower’s cold climate version features additional heating units that keep the wind power plant operational even at -30 degrees of Celsius thus delivering constantly high yields.
