We reveal the secrets of the wind: Wölfel at the digital WindEnergy 2020

We at Wölfel know the wind inside and out, we know its strengths and weaknesses and we know what it is capable of – in the positive as well as in the negative sense. At the digital WindEnergy, we will reveal some of its secrets and show how we use this knowledge and the support of intelligent algorithms to help you exploit the full potential of your wind farm – e.g. by significantly extending the service life of wind turbines, reliable ice detection, damage detection on foundations or by damping tonalities and vibrations.

This is what you can expect at our digital booth at WindEnergy 2020:

We let the wind speak

In our new image film the wind tells its story. We are excitedly looking forward to the premiere at the WindEnergy.

We celebrate the successful assessment of our load reconstruction methodology

With the help of the load reconstruction methodology implemented in SHM.Tower®, the lifetime extension of your wind turbine can be verifiably maximized due to the exact statement about the actual lifetime consumption. You can learn more about this in our free webinars on 1 December at 13:00 (German) and 15:00 (English).

Monitoring of tower and foundation damage

With our new monitoring system SHM.Foundation® you can detect damage on the tower and foundation at an early stage and monitor it continuously.

Cutting Costs with Structural Monitoring

In order to sustainably reduce operating costs, more and more offshore wind farms (a total of > 600 wind turbines with a capacity > 3 GW) rely on SHM.Foundation individual. Learn more about the system, our monitoring philosophy and our Digital Twin concept in a virtual presentation at our booth. In our web app, you can also calculate your individual potential for cost savings.

Best practice ice detection

With our ice detection system IDD.Blade®, wind turbines come to a standstill exactly when the ice build-up becomes critical and restart automatically when the risk is over. Learn more about our new projects.

Fight against disturbing noise

Last year, we not only extended the functional range of ADD.Sound® by synchronous damping of several frequencies, our active damping device is now also used in even more wind turbine types. Calculate in our web app how quickly the system will pay off in your specific application.

Best practice vibration reduction

On behalf of a leading manufacturer of wind turbines, we have developed and delivered dampers for several tower types to reduce "vortex-induced vibrations". Learn more about the Wölfel service portfolio.

Individual measurement campaigns and data analysis for the optimization of your wind turbine

Within the scope of prototype validation or for the analysis of tonalities, we offer (combined) measurement campaigns and in the course of this we analyze the structural and radiation behavior of your wind turbine. For this purpose, our expert Dr. Manuel Eckstein will be happy to advise you in a personal chat.

Details and background information on these topics will be available at our virtual booth from 1 – 4 December 2020. Here you will find, among other things, information material on our system solutions, presentation videos and exciting case studies on projects from the past year. In addition, you will of course be able to exchange ideas directly with our wind energy experts. We look forward to meeting you!
