Danfoss preferred partner in wind turbine industry

02 September 2008

With costs rising and resources dwindling, the quest for an alternative to fossil fuels has become a hot topic. Because it’s an unlimited natural resource, wind is one of the most attractive alternatives to fossil fuels. The energy produced from wind is clean, fast, competitive and carbon neutral.

The number of new wind turbines around the globe has increased at an average rate of 22.3% a year for the last five years. And a recent prognosis estimates that this rapid growth will continue by 20.7% a year over the next five years. The top ten suppliers of wind turbines in 2007 accounted for 95% of total wind turbine production.

Danfoss products help control vital functions, such as gear boxes and hydraulic systems, in wind turbines. The top ten global wind turbine companies are directly and indirectly supplied by Danfoss with pressure and temperature sensors, pressure and temperature switches, and industrial valves.

Extreme environmental conditions place fierce demands on wind turbines. High winds, harsh offshore conditions, changing wind directions and high altitude locations all effect wind turbine performance. To meet these demands, Danfoss dedicated pressure sensors incorporate piezo resistive technology, which make them ideal for demanding wind turbine applications.

Another new development at Danfoss is Danfoss Wind Power, established by Danfoss Ventures. Danfoss Wind Power works closely with divisions across Danfoss to promote products for the wind turbine industry. Danfoss Wind Power focuses on frequency converters and power electronics, which are both products from our Danfoss Motion Controls Division. These further strengthen our contribution to the wind turbine industry.
