Wind parks have been erected all over the world – using wind as an energy source is a crucial factor for achieving an economically viable and climate-friendly power supply via renewable energies. Just like solar energy and photovoltaic systems, wind energy also makes a significant contribution to environmental protection and sustainability. LAPP is also playing its part in the energy revolution by developing solutions that meet the challenges of the greatly differing climatic conditions at sites on different continents as well as the specific technical requirements.
The demands on cables, glands, wires and plug connections regarding temperature resistance, vibration resistance and torsional stability are extremely high for both onshore and offshore plants. This is partly due to the greatly differing climatic conditions in locations such as Asia and Europe, as well as the specific technical specifications. Cables and glands for wind turbines must be designed for a temperature range of -40 to +90°C, as well as being UV-resistant and more than able to withstand the prevailing mechanical forces. And often over many years.
Only if all components are optimally coordinated and of the highest quality can service life or system failures be permanently avoided. There is no alternative to using high-quality products in wind turbines. Extreme climatic conditions and strong torsional forces are prevalent there that impact the power and control cables used. As a result, flexible cables and wires for wind turbines must meet high requirements with regard to torsion resistance and robustness.
The high quality of our products is constantly ensured via our own state-of-the-art test centres. The global network with its own in-house production in the main markets gives our international customers the security of being able to access a large assortment of standard products with the corresponding standards all over the world.
LAPP can draw on its extensive experience of over 50 years of development and manufacturing, and has built on this to develop various innovations and a high level of production quality and reliability.
