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: The taming of the light screw

DESY and MPSD scientists create high-order harmonics from solids with controlled polarization states, taking advantage of both crystal symmetry and attosecond electronic dynamics. The newly demonstrated technique might find intriguing applications in petahertz electronics and for spectroscopic studies of novel quantum materials.

The nonlinear process of high-order harmonic generation (HHG) in gases is one of the cornerstones of attosecond science (an attosecond is a billionth of a...

Im Focus: Magnetic micro-boats

Nano- and microtechnology are promising candidates not only for medical applications such as drug delivery but also for the creation of little robots or flexible integrated sensors. Scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) have created magnetic microparticles, with a newly developed method, that could pave the way for building micro-motors or guiding drugs in the human body to a target, like a tumor. The preparation of such structures as well as their remote-control can be regulated using magnetic fields and therefore can find application in an array of domains.

The magnetic properties of a material control how this material responds to the presence of a magnetic field. Iron oxide is the main component of rust but also...

Im Focus: Self-healing coating made of corn starch makes small scratches disappear through heat

Due to the special arrangement of its molecules, a new coating made of corn starch is able to repair small scratches by itself through heat: The cross-linking via ring-shaped molecules makes the material mobile, so that it compensates for the scratches and these disappear again.

Superficial micro-scratches on the car body or on other high-gloss surfaces are harmless, but annoying. Especially in the luxury segment such surfaces are...

Im Focus: Stellar cartography

The Potsdam Echelle Polarimetric and Spectroscopic Instrument (PEPSI) at the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT) in Arizona released its first image of the surface magnetic field of another star. In a paper in the European journal Astronomy & Astrophysics, the PEPSI team presents a Zeeman- Doppler-Image of the surface of the magnetically active star II Pegasi.

A special technique allows astronomers to resolve the surfaces of faraway stars. Those are otherwise only seen as point sources, even in the largest telescopes...

Im Focus: Heading towards a tsunami of light

Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, have proposed a way to create a completely new source of radiation. Ultra-intense light pulses consist of the motion of a single wave and can be described as a tsunami of light. The strong wave can be used to study interactions between matter and light in a unique way. Their research is now published in the scientific journal Physical Review Letters.

"This source of radiation lets us look at reality through a new angle - it is like twisting a mirror and discovering something completely different," says...
