Renewable energy has brought about fundamental changes in structures related to energy production and distribution. On land, small to medium-sized generators are replacing conventional power plants, while powerful large-scale plants are cropping up out at sea. PFISTERER supplies both tried-and-tested and new components to ensure the required degree of modularity when designing plants.
Offshore substations for wind farms house complex technology in a very small space. The CONNEX connection system for medium and high voltage cables is ideally suited for this application: Touch-proof, compact, maintenance-free, and salt water-resistant, it is the only system to have been certified by DVN-GL for use at sea. This technology is also a popular choice for hydropower plant substations, where space is often extremely tight.
Wind power plants both on land and at sea require pre-equipped and easy-to-replace modules. The answer? The PLUG high voltage connection system. And our easy-to-install medium and low voltage connectors provide an efficient way to connect small and medium onshore plants.
Power is often not available at the places where it is needed most. Normally, diesel generators provide the necessary energy in cases like this. The new intelligent CrossPower energy management system by PFISTERER is the first system made up of robust, scalable microgrids based on renewable energy and can be used anywhere in the world.
