Wind energy

The use of wind energy for electricity generation in Germany began with the development of large wind turbines (GROWIAN) by the end of the 1970s. As a result of a federal promotion program, the 1980s saw the beginning of a rapid development of the use of wind energy. Currently the expansion onshore is slowing down. The growth potential seems higher offshore and abroad.

We have taken part in these developments since the very beginning. At the Technical University Braunschweig we ran the simulations of double-fed generators for large wind turbines (Growian) and studied the interference with network stability of the inverters. We identified wind potential areas for the region of Bremen and many municipalities in Schleswig-Holstein.

Compact medium voltage stations were built for the first time in the wind park in Wremen with our help. Furthermore, we developed there the first remote monitoring system. We have pre-planned, planned and monitored the development of many wind projects. We have also planned and built substations and engaged deeply in the problem of unused wind power.

We believe that the future challenges lie mainly in the electro-technical sphere. With an increasing share in the German electricity market the requirements for wind power industry are growing: e.g. useful and unused power regulation and preparedness in case of short circuits.

We project and manage the installation of wind turbines from conception to completion offering initial expert advice on choice of site, through to connecting to the grid.

Our services:

  • Site evaluation and optimization
  • Application processing and tendering under the German EEG
  • Grid integration of the turbines
  • Manage the construction and implementation of the project
  • Full range of project support and advice (e.g. video surveillance for ice detection, technical solutions for bat monitoring etc.)
