Siemens presents cost reduction solutions in wind energy at EWEA 2015 trade show

09.11.2015

EWEA 2015: Siemens booth M01 in Pavillon 1, Paris Expo, Porte de Versailles

  • Trade fair motto: "Siemens wind power solutions every step of the way" Presentation covers the whole value-chain of wind projects
  • Innovation regarding wind turbines, grid access, operation and service
  • New logistics concept will reduce costs for offshore wind parks

At booth M01 in pavilion 1, Paris Expo, Porte de Versailles, the company will give insights into its innovations to reduce costs for wind energy.

Siemens is presenting innovations solutions to further reduce the cost of wind power at one of the most important trade show for wind energy in Europe, EWEA 2015 in Paris. At a 200 square meter booth (M01 in pavilion 1 of the Paris Expo, Porte de Versailles), new products for wind energy plants, grid connections, operations and services are being presented from November 17 to 20.

Within its solutions along the entire energy value chain, Siemens combines modern wind turbine technology with efficient transportation processes and installation as well as operational management, service and maintenance.

Siemens is also striking out in new directions regarding grid connections: The new HVDC technology to efficiently connect large offshore wind power plants to energy grids on shore can be seen at the M01 booth. Additionally, components like generators and controls as well as so called multilevel wind SCADA centers – digital control centers for wind power plants will be on display to round off our booth presentation.

"EWEA 2015 in Paris is one of the most important trade shows for us this year," underlines Markus Tacke, CEO of Siemens Wind Power and Renewables Division. "We will show at our booth how our customers from various European markets can benefit from intelligent connected Siemens technologies and services along the entire value chain."

On the first day of the trade show the Siemens Wind Power and Renewables Division will present its new logistics concept at a press conference. This concept intends to connect future production facilities for the 75 meters long offshore rotor blades in Hull, UK, and D7 nacelles from Cuxhaven, Lower Saxony, with existing harbor and production locations in Denmark. Furthermore highly industrialized processes for the production and installation of the plants help to reduce time and costs.

At the Siemens booth visitors can also learn more about the second generation of HVDC-grid connections for offshore wind parks which were introduced in October. This technology reduces costs arising from high-voltage direct-current transmission by one third. Furthermore, visitors can gain insights about how the maintenance of onshore and offshore plants can be performed in a highly efficient way through an interactive terminal.

Here the focus is not only on remote diagnosis, but also on optimized operations and the analysis of big data in addition to predictive maintenance and repair services. Within a comprehensive presentation program, experienced experts located at the "Siemens X-pert Center" will demonstrate advantages of the direct drive wind turbines or how energy yield can be optimized by modern operating strategies.

Im Focus: Future electronic components to be printed like newspapers

A new manufacturing technique uses a process similar to newspaper printing to form smoother and more flexible metals for making ultrafast electronic devices.

The low-cost process, developed by Purdue University researchers, combines tools already used in industry for manufacturing metals on a large scale, but uses...

Im Focus: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
