Wind turbines in China

When we think of China today, we see an immense economic power in front of us. Cities, where the glass office towers shoot in the sky, where millions of people flock to the cities and where long traffic jams push through the multi-lane roads.

When we think of China today, we see an immense economic power in front of us. Cities, where the glass office towers shoot in the sky, where millions of people flock to the cities and where long traffic jams push through the multi-lane roads.

But as well images of factory chimneys, gigantic dam projects and a glittering world of luxury are part of modern China. But few think about the fact that China is now also a leading power in renewable energies. No wonder China still requires enormous amounts of energy to “feed” the steady growth. The planners of the state commissions have recognized long ago that this amount of power can not be met by the use of fossil fuels only.

In addition to water and solar wind plays a crucial role. In the great plains of the vast empire, there is enough space for wind farms, which may produce large amounts of energy in the near future. Likewise, it is also evident that it requires a great effort. Therefore, it is more important that it is possible to maintain the turbines.

 

Dongfang – China – wind energy – V200A-UMB

 

The Ventus-UMB for wind energy applications provides this valuable assistance in the measurement technology. Several manufacturers of wind turbines are already using it in northern China. The key advantage of the Ventus-UMB is the ice-free data acquisition in the “cold climate”. With a heat output of 240W, the Ventus-UMB provides ice-free sensors. In addition, it has also successfully completed vibration tests, salt testing and destruction tests (HALT-test). This guarantees uninterrupted operations throughout the year.
