  • Wind Turbines

  • THE IDEA - Brilliantly simple

    Fewer components, higher wind energy yield, reliable operation

    VENSYS Energy AG with its head office in Neunkirchen/Germany develops and manufactures gearless wind turbines

    We have made a name for ourselves with high-performance turbines that feature a permanently magnet-excited multi-polar generator, a low-maintenance toothed-belt drive for the blade pitch system, a simple generator cooling and the full-power converter system that allows for a wide range of grid requirements to be met.

    The special turbine design relies on a minimum number of high-quality and long-lasting components. High efficiency, low maintenance as well as the compact design and the advantages of systems that are virtually free of wear ensure consistently higher yields.

        • We deliver the complete range: from the tower base to the tip of the rotor blade

        • All the core components of VENSYS wind turbines are designed by our experienced engineers and manufactured in different production facilities of the VENSYS Group.

          While the full-power converter and the special electrical pitch system are produced at Vensys Elektrotechnik in Diepholz, the multi-polar generatoris assembled in Neunkirchen. Production of our rotor blades for different power classes is carried out by E-Blades, our subsidiary in Spain.

          It is this interaction of perfectly-coordinated key components paired with our own turbine control system which guarantees reliable engine technology – made by VENSYS.

              • Technology

              • Five distinctive features

              • Direct drive
              • Permanent magnet technology
              • VENSYS blade pitch system
              • Full-power converter system
              • Air cooling
              • Maximum yield

                VENSYS technology is based on the idea of generating a maximum amount of energy while minimizing losses at the same time. Distinctly higher efficiency with increased yields and enhanced economy due to maximum availability are characteristic of this approach

                Few low-maintenance components

                VENSYS has simplified wind turbines in a revolutionary way. A small number of remaining parts have been consistently improved in terms of performance, durability and wear resistance, resulting in even higher quality in addition to savings in manufacturing, assembly and operation.

                  • Generator

                  • The direct-drive system – all the advantages of gearless machines

                    Wind turbines designed by VENSYS operate without high-maintenance gearboxes that are prone to wear. They save on elaborate technology and require fewer environmentally hazardous lubricants and consumables than conventional transmission systems. Safe and efficient operation thus go hand in hand.

                    VENSYS combines the advantages of gearless technology with the generator concept of a synchronous machine with permanent magnet excitation. The rotor speed is transferred directly to the multi-polar generator – completely without any excitation losses. The gearless technology design concept used by VENSYS thus leads to high wind yields and high returns.

                    High performance paired with a low tower head mass

                    VENSYS wind turbines are equipped with a directly driven, permanently magnet-excited synchronous generator. The high-quality permanent magnets are fitted to the outer cover of the rotor, reducing heat losses in the generator and providing for simple and efficient cooling.

                    The shape of the external rotor supports a compact design, making the best possible use of the tower head volume. A maximum generator diameter can be achieved on a reduced surface – yet another aspect why VENSYS is synonymous with enhanced efficiency.

                  • Permanent Magnet Technology

                  • High efficiency = higher yield

                    VENSYS utilizes permanent magnet technology known from electric drives in navigation and electric vehicles with a tailor-made turbine design concept for wind energy purposes.

                    The robust VENSYS generators bring together three decades´ worth of know-how in independent research work on permanent magnet technology. The generators of the 2.5/3.0 platform are performance-optimized enhancements with an even larger diameter and greater length yet lower speed.

                    No excitation losses = even higher yield

                    Unlike electrical excitation, permanent magnet technology does not have the disadvantage of excitation losses. The savings in excitation power are thus fully available as additional energy yield in VENSYS wind turbines.

                    This leads to improved efficiency, in particular in the low or partial-load range. In addition, there is no need to transfer the excitation power by means of slip rings, which saves on complex turbine components and reduces production and operation costs.

                  • Blade Pitch

                  • Low-wear and low-maintenance toothed-belt drive

                    A special feature of VENSYS wind turbines is the lubrication-free toothed belt for transmitting the force between the pitch drive and the rotor blade. Our extremely durable drive system thus prevents wear as a result of corrosion or pitting which can be found in conventional rotor blade adjustment systems using gearing and drive pinions.

                    The pitch system requires virtually no maintenance. Due to integrated special fibers, the toothed belt is also impervious to shock load and can easily be exchanged if the need arises. The variable-speed rotor blade drive ensures very good incident flow even in the partial-load range.

                    More safety and long-term cost advantages

                    Our patented toothed-belt drive for the blade pitch system has stood the test of time in the most diverse locations: impervious to moisture, dirt and temperature changes as well as constant exposure in areas with strong and turbulent winds.

                    In addition, triple redundancy further enhances safety. The drive of each rotor blade comes with an energy storage device (capacitor), making sure that in the event of power failure the rotor blades can safely be driven into braking position. The long-life capacitors deliver the required power even in low temperatures.

                  • Grid Connection

                  • Connection with power plant properties

                    Feeding in short-circuit current, quick separation from the grid or bridging short-term voltage drops and sudden voltage rises in the grid: all these are power plant properties that distinguish VENSYS converter systems, making them suitable for universal grid connections.

                    The total power produced is directed via the VENSYS converter, which allows for the generator to be decoupled effectively from the grid. Power network disturbances and voltage fluctuations thus do not affect the control behavior of VENSYS wind turbines. The converter can even support weak grids.

                  • Generator Cooling

                  • Air cooling: simple, clean, easy to maintain

                    The generator is one of the core elements in the nacelle of any wind turbine. Generating electricity always entails heat losses, causing the copper windings to heat up. To prevent damage to the generator, the heat must be dissipated.

                    To do so, VENSYS relies on a simple yet efficient air cooling method. The generators of the 1.5 MW platform are cooled using a passive, maintenance-free air circulation system without any moving parts. The ambient air is directed through special cooling channels on the generator housing

                • Service

                • Five distinctive features
                  The success of VENSYS wind turbines is based on five technological features founded on the basic principle of generating the maximum amount of energy while minimizing losses.
                  Beyond that principle, the VENSYS design philosophy is very simple: limit yourself to few high-quality construction parts, reduce the number of wear parts and only use durable components
