Case Study "TMD.Tower prevents vortex induced tower vibrations"

Today’s slender and high wind turbine towers are increasingly subject to vibrations, which are typically caused by wind and wave loads or rotor imbalances. A leading german wind turbine OEM requested for Wölfel to develop and manufacture a solution for vortex induced vibrations (VIV) in the 2nd tower bending mode for turbines in wind farms across the world. The aim is to reduce critical fatigue loads during vortex shedding events. Relatively high tower frequencies above one hertz, a cost efficient design and fast delivery are only some of the challenges within this project.
