Upgrading the iconic Tvind wind turbine
Upgrading the controlling system of the Tvind turbine.
Orbital is upgrading the iconic Tvind-mølle. The 40 year-old wind turbine´s controlling system is being substituted with a new and safe system including the pitch and yaw control systems
The automation department has produced all electrical drawings, PLC software and HMI display solutions. Then the production builds and tests the controlling cabinet.
Allan Lund Jensen, wind turbine caretaker at Tvindkraft says,
”The Tvind turbine is with its design for 2MW a milestone in Danish wind power. We would like to keep it in operation for a long time yet which will please a lot of people. Orbital endorses our view. Orbital is out trusted manufacturer to guarantee the wind turbine´s operation in the future by upgrading it with controlling, automation and surveillance technology. Orbital´s technicians work effectively and with a great drive and commitment for the project to advance while we receive status updates”.
Presently the Tvind project is in an installation phase with on site service, adjustments and customization. The magazine “Maskinmesterbladet” has printed an article on how Danni Søndergaard Andersen, an Orbital technician, works around the clock to complete the Tvind wind turbine.
