Altra Renewable Energy brings wind turbine expertise to Husum Wind 2019
12 August 2019
Husum Wind 2019 will see the attendance of Altra Renewable Energy, with visitors able to connect with Ameridrives, Stromag, Svendborg Brakes, Twiflex and Warner Electric. Products, systems, services and aftermarket support for wind turbines from all brands will be presented on Stand 3C31 from September 10th – 13th 2019 at Messe Husum, Germany.
Altra Renewable Energy gathers leading brands from Altra Motion Corp.: each with experience in delivering products and services to the wind industry specifically designed to promote uptime through power transmission reliability. Products across each brand offer interoperability and easy integration, allowing operators in the wind sector to specify turnkey solutions from a single source for maximum convenience.
A global service capability is backed with localised experts, ensuring fast response to requirements in-the-field. Far-reaching experience built over decades operating in demanding renewable industries such as wind, tidal, hydro-, solar, biomass, geothermal and energy storage ensures a quality service.
Designs from each of the brands will be available on integrated digital displays on the stand. Products will include actuators, brake discs, brake pads, cooling systems, couplings, electromagnetic brakes, hydraulic power units, limit switches, locking devices, rotor brakes, rotor locks, soft braking controls and yaw brakes.
Of particular interest, Svendborg Brakes will be highlighting patented service solutions, such as its Yaw Brake Lifting and Installation Service Tool for easy removal and installation of turbine brakes - which can reduce turbine downtime by 50%. Another service innovation is the CNC computer controlled Disc Resurfacing Tool for machining yaw brake discs in situ, offering substantial time and value benefits.
A new Green Friction Material for brake pads, also from Svendborg Brakes, will add further interest to show visitors. Leading the way in environmentally sensitive brake pads for wind turbines, the new Green Friction Material reduces levels of mercury, lead and chromium 6+ to less than 0.1%, while cadmium levels drop to less than 0.01%. This minimises the contaminating effects of brake dust on the environment.
With manufacturing and engineering service centers located throughout the world, customers of any of the brands within Altra Renewables have access to the service and support of the complete division. Svendborg Brakes 24/7 global service can also be accessed via its dedicated Service App.
Representatives from the Altra Renewable Energy brands will be available on stand throughout the event.
