WindEnergy Hamburg 2018

aerodyn is presenting new turbine concepts and floating offshore simulation

At the WindEnergy 2018 in Hamburg, aerodyn is presenting the new low wind speed turbine model of its aeroMaster 4 turbine platform. The turbine will be realized with 4,2MW rated power and 147m rotor diameter for TC S wind conditions. Also the new aeroMaster NT "New Technology" concept is presented the first time at the exhibition. The new drive train concept combines the advantages of medium-speed hybrid-drive concepts with modular drive train designs which allows among other advantages the exchange of the hybrid-drive unit without disassembly of the nacelle and without the need of an external heavy duty crane to reduce O&M cost significantly.

By introducing the modern multi-body simulation code HAWC2 as load simulation tool, aerodyn is now also able to offer the design and load analysis for floating offshore wind turbines as engineering service. HAWC2 is able to model and analyse all types of floating offshore foundations such as spar-buoy, semi-submersible and tension-leg type foundations.

aeroMaster 4.X

Design of the new 4.XMW onshore platform finished

With aeroMaster 4.X aerodyn has developed a modern and flexible turbine platform for onshore projects. The prototype of the new turbine will be installed in summer 2018 by Unison in South Korea. This turbine model with 4MW rated power and 140 m rotor diameter is designed for medium wind conditions. A high wind speed version for TC 1 is under development currently and will be realized by the second customer Mapna in Iran. The turbine will also be upgraded for high temperature conditions for the projects in Iran. A low wind speed configuration with 150 m rotor diameter is under preparation and will be available in summer 2018. For all turbine models aerodyn has taken into account the transportation restrictions in most countries and has limited the transportation unit weights to 75 to.

aeroMaster 5.0

Zhejiang Windey installs aeroMaster 5.0 prototype in China

The installation of the aeroMaster 5.0 offshore wind turbine developed by aerodyn was finalized on January 25th 2016. Zhejiang Windey, a leading Chinese wind turbine manufacturer, installed the prototype south of Shanghai at the Hangzhou delta. The wind turbine with a rotor diameter of 139 m and 5 MW power has a high-speed drive train with a low voltage generator based on the well-proven aeroMaster drive train concept. The aeroMaster 5.0 is aerodyn's third 5 MW offshore wind turbine.

aeroMaster gets B-Design Assessement

In June 2014, the B-Design-Certificate for the aeroMaster 5.0 MW TC2B Ø139m offshore turbine was granted by DEWI-OCC. We wish to thank all the suppliers for their cooperation in the development and certification of this turbine.

Final witnessing and documentation will follow soon, and aerodyn is awaiting the A-Design Certificate for this license product.

The Hyosung Corporation, a Korean power and industrial systems company and wind turbine manufacturer, installed the prototype on Jeju Island south of the Korean peninsula early this year.

Hyosung Corporation Installs aeroMaster 5.0 Prototype on Jeju Island, Korea

The aeroMaster 5.0 offshore wind turbine developed by aerodyn was fully installed on 24 February 2014. Hyosung Corporation, the Korean power and industrial systems company and wind turbine manufacturer, installed the prototype on Jeju Island south of the Korean peninsula. The wind turbine with a rotor diameter of 139 m and 5 MW power has a high-speed drive train with a medium voltage generator. The turbine was developed incorporating the well-proven aeroMaster drive train concept. The aeroMaster 5.0 is already the third 5 MW offshore wind turbine from aerodyn. A second prototype of the 5 MW turbine will be installed during the course of this year by a Chinese manufacturer.

Rotor blade for 5 MW offshore turbine tested successfully

The aerodynBlade 5.0 -68.0 has successfully passed the static blade test in Korea. The 68 m long rotor blade is to be used in aeroMaster 5 MW offshore turbines and is designed for a rotor diameter of 139 m and type class 2B. The positive outcome of the blade test is a further milestone in the development of the aerodynBlade family and the aeroMaster 5MW wind turbine.

In the test, the blade is subject to loads with maximum forces up to 80 tons, undergoing bending up to approx. 18 m in this process. The blade test was conducted by the Korean Institute KIMS on behalf of our client Hyosung. The blade was manufactured in China at the company of Aeolon. The test was supervised by the certifying company, Germanischer Lloyd Renewables Certification. Success of the test is due to the terrific cooperation between the companies involved.

Offshore wind farm Bard I inaugurated

The German Federal Minister of Economics and Technology, Rösler, opened Germany's largest offshore wind farm Bard I on 26 August 2013. Newspapers reported the Minister said that this shows that technological challenges can be mastered. "All of this is 'made in Germany' and offers tremendous chances", said the Minister. Not only is the production made in Germany but also the turbine design is made in Germany, made by aerodyn.
