Deutsche Windtechnik wins modernization contract in Germany – reNews
Deutsche Windtechnik has won a tender from energy supplier EWE Erneuerbare Energien and will equip 110 wind turbines with different system technologies with its transponder-based Aircraft Detection Lighting System (ADLS).
Deutsche Windtechnik’s ADLS can be installed in a range of configurations, for example as a complete solution or by integrating the manufacturer’s ADLS interface.
The portfolio to be modernized includes turbines commonly installed in Germany, including various models from Enercon, Senvion, Vestas, Siemens, Nordex and Fuhrländer.
The wind turbines are located in 25 wind farms across Germany and in some cases ADLS systems will be installed to simultaneously cover multiple wind farms.
Ewald Heyen of EWE Erneuerbare Energien, who managed the tender, said: “Deutsche Windtechnik won the tender to modernize our onshore portfolio with ADLS technology.
“Deutsche Windtechnik submitted the best overall offer.
“Deutsche Windtechnik has been servicing various EWE wind farms for several years now, in particular for wind turbines from the manufacturers Fuhrländer, Nordex, Senvion and Vestas.
“For this reason, we already know the company very well and they have impressed us in the past with their good performance.”
Deutsche Windtechnik senior sales manager Jasper Salzwedel added: “The result of the tender shows that our flexible ADLS meets the requirements of energy suppliers as well as the requirements of a community wind farm.
“The fact that it can be configured and used independently of the system technology and adapted to existing wind turbines and wind farm infrastructure is a significant advantage.”
