Windenergy by DROMEC
'Socially Responsible' and 'durability' are keywords in our renewable energie projects. Generating green power with plains or kites till design and production of shore and offshore windfarms , DROMEC has the experiance to support you. Also service winches for windturbines are part of our programm.
Wind turbines, also called Windmills are a familiar sight in the Dutch landscape and North Sea. During commissioning and maintenance of these complex installations, often a lot of technology is involved. For example: service winches in the nacelle of a wind turbine, systems for pulling cables from an Offshore wind turbine to the transformer (infield cable) and of course from the transformer to shore, the so called “Export cable”. To avoid damage on cables caused by too much pulling force, complex systems are used. Dromec has a lot of experience with design and production of these kind of systems. Besides production of these machines, Dromec also arranges training for the operators.
Result of this approach is that these complex projects can be realized in a safe and efficient way. Below some examples of Dromec systems we have in the field or sea at this moment.
Winch system for pulling of high voltage export offshore cables.
This system consists of a traction winch, storage winch and high-tech controls. Traction and storage winch cooperate with each other. During the pull, the procedure is monitored by the control unit to make sure that pre-set values will not be exceeded. After the pull, a final report is direct available, so end customer can check if the pull is executed as planned. During the pull, the operator has real time info displayed on a full color HMI and can intervene or correct if necessary.
EPK-15.000-C + EPH-1000
Winch system for pulling infield cables.
The functionality of this system is almost the same as his big brother the EPT-40.000, only in smaller dimensions. This is important because during pulling of these cable types, the system needs to be re-positioned constantly. This because the cables entrances are located all over the transformer island.
This system consists of a capstan, storage winch and hightech controls. Capstan and storage winch are connected and controlled by remote control graphic HMI with touch screen, so operator can move freely during the pull. Also, with this system, a final report is directly available.
Nacelle service winch (Wind turbines)
For maintenance on wind turbines, good equipment is necessary. This ECH-880 is already applied by market leaders in this industry. With this winch, tools and parts can be transported to and from the nacelle in a safe and fast way. Optional we can deliver a personal lifting or man riding option, so the maintenance engineer can also travel by this winch, instead of taking the stairs.
