Senvion, now a part of Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, is a wind turbine manufacturer that introduced its new generation 3.XM NES (Next Electrical System) in 2015 to meet future demands for network stability. An expansion of the nacelle’s test facilities was required to accommodate the new generation. DIS/CREADIS was responsible for upgrading the existing series of test stands at Bremerhaven and Trampe.
The main challenge Senvion faced was the upgrade of the existing test stands at Bremerhaven and Trampe which required the development and manufacture of inverters and simulation parts, as well as the coordination and monitoring of production, delivery, and installation of the units. Despite the concurrent serial production at both sites, the project had to be completed without any disruptions.
To overcome these challenges, Senvion engaged DIS/CREADIS, because of their extensive experience in high-voltage electronics and setting up test stands. The DIS/CREADIS project engineers were responsible for the specifications, development, and manufacture of inverters and simulation parts, as well as the commissioning of the units. They also coordinated and monitored the production, delivery, and installation of the units and provided training to Senvion employees. The project was successfully completed in Spring 2016 with the delivery of five new converters, six identical simulators, and user-friendly and optimized test software.
DIS/CREADIS’ expertise in the development and manufacturing of inverters and simulation parts, as well as the coordination and monitoring of production, delivery, and installation of the units, was crucial for the success of Senvion’s project. DIS/CREADIS provided training to Senvion employees, which helped in the smooth transition to the new test stands. The user-friendly and optimized test software provided by DIS/CREADIS helped Senvion to test its wind turbines with ease and efficiency.
