The most important meeting for wind energy in cold climates, Winterwind 2017 conference, is opening its doors in Skellefteå, Sweden from February 6th till February 8th. Since 2008, the Swedish Windpower Association organizes this event.
Winterwind International Wind Energy Conference offers seminars, poster exhibition, networking, social events and a trade fair. The interest in this conference is getting higher and higher, and so there are about 500 participants expected to join the conference this year.
Your contact person
Your contact person – Ms. Sara Landvogt from fos4X – will be participating at the conference and is looking forward to interesting discussions about our solutions in generating wind power in cold climates. You can also find us at the trade fair – booth n° 31.
Ice detection with fiber optic sensors
fos4Blade IceDetection offers an ice detection system for rotor blades which will detect precisely even the smallest build-up of ice. This means that the wind turbine can be shut down as late as possible, without endangering safety, and it also enables automatic restarting, even at night or in foggy conditions, without requiring on-site visual inspection.
Specific Product highlights:
- Precise ice detection from 10 kg by means of sensors in the rotor blade
- Minimization of downtime as a result
- Automatic restart possible
- DNV-GL certified
- Available as retrofit-solution and for all types of turbines
