Wind Turbine Case Study
Securing our customer's investment with our heat shrink solution for protection against high temperatures.
Wind energy is one of the main pillars in the production of renewable energy.
Sustainable installations and technical innovations play a major role in the generation of energy from wind turbines - the more powerful and sustainable the turbines are, the more clean energy is generated.
For this newly developed wind turbine, our customer was looking for a solution to insulate an unprotected copper-bar between the stator and the terminal box. The insulation solution needed to be able to withstand the required dielectric strength of 16kV/mm as well as support a broad continuous operating temperature range of -75°C up to 150°C.
A recent project involved three different possible solutions: Insulation with tape, painting or heat shrink tube.
In the end, the client was faced with the decision between the insulation painting and our heat shrink solution.
Our solution did convince due to a number of benefits: Easy and time efficient installation, excellent sealing
Unprotected copper-bar connection between the stator and the terminal box.
High temperature heat shrink solution to insulate and withstand dielectric strength.
