Wind energy

Managing the energy transition with industrial routers in the wind farm

The rapid transition to renewable energies is no longer just a question of climate protection and sustainability, but also of commercial competitiveness and national security. As an active player in the wind energy sector you are in a key position. This is because, on the one hand, security of supply has to be guaranteed at all times in spite of naturally fluctuating energy yields.

On the other hand, installations need to be operated efficiently and cost-effectively in the long term. In addition, there are the industry-specific requirements such as acceptance on the part of local residents or the protection of passers-by, animals and aircraft.

Your complex world of requirements

  • Protection for birds and bats
  • Monitoring and prevention of ice shedding
  • Reduction of shadow flicker
  • Automatic emergency shutdown
  • Requirements-controlled beacons
  • Protection against lightning strikes
