Siemens presents the complete wind power value chain at Husum Wind 2015

• Slogan: "WINDforce: Adding Value to Your Wind Business” • Digitalization and automation makes technology even more efficient

From the wind turbine to the distribution grids: Siemens has fanned out its solutions for the wind power sector as broadly as the challenges facing the energy turnaround. From September 15 to 18 the company will be presenting its wind technology at the Husum Wind 2015 trade fair, ranging from generating electricity from wind and feeding power into the grid to solutions for distribution and energy storage. This year, Siemens' stand A10 in Hall 2 will focus primarily on cost-cutting and digitalization across the entire wind power value chain. The company is appearing under the motto: "WINDforce: Adding Value to Your Wind Business"


Siemens will be showing its latest products and developments, starting with the Model SWT-3.3-130 wind turbine which, currently undergoing trial testing, is set to deliver the highest efficiency rate for sites offering low and medium wind speeds already in 2017. Load management systems and energy storage - battery storage systems as well as electrolysis systems - are aimed at lowering future costs of distributing and integrating wind power into the grids. Siemens will also be exhibiting energy-efficient ways in which wind turbines are being automated: The multi-level Wind SCADA System is well suited for wind turbine manufacturers as well as for independent service-providers.

Busbar trunking systems and transformers as well as medium- and low-voltage switchgear equipment specially designed for use in wind farms ensure safe, reliable and efficient power distribution and feed into the grid. At Husum Siemens is also presenting integrated and harmonized protection, switching, measuring and monitoring devices that provide efficient distribution. Remote maintenance and modern service concepts help to lower operating costs. Siemens is furthermore showing how technical solutions enable sensible further development of established marketing models - from electricity trading to operating reserve. Digitalization offers a wide range of control options with which Siemens is shaping its responses to the challenges of the energy transition.

"The close proximity to our customers Germany makes the Husum Wind exhibition an outstanding event for us," says Dr. Markus Tacke, CEO of Siemens' Wind Power and Renewables Division. "There, we show our entire range of solutions for advanced markets in which wind power is already delivering a substantial share of the power supply. At this trade show we focus on technologies that contribute to stabilizing grids and lowering costs."

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
