Wind Energy Connectivity

Best-in-class interconnectivity solutions from HUBER+SUHNER

Wind energy has become one of the fastest growing energy sources - tripling in installed capacity over the last decade. Wind turbines used to generate energy from wind are sizeable structures measuring as high as a 50-story building with rotors that swipe diameters of 220 meters. To maximize energy extraction, safety and economy, control of these giants is critical.

Utilizing expertise in radio frequency, fiber optics and low/high voltage technologies, HUBER+SUHNER develops best-in-class cables, connectors, antennas and a portfolio of solutions that support data and/or power exchange from the tip of the blade to the base of the tower and throughout the wind park.

This is why the world’s major manufacturers of wind turbines utilize cables and connectors from HUBER+SUHNER, which are designed to withstand the harsh environments of both onshore and offshore sites, enabling easy and safe installation. 
 

Applications

  • Wind tower cabling

    Preassembled cable systems to ensure ease and safety of installation.
  • Nacelle communication

    Customized solutions designed to meet even the strictest requirements.
  • Wind park communication

    Performance and longevity even in harsh environments.

Featured Products

  • Low and medium high voltage cables

    Featuring RADOX technology

    The unique e-beam crosslink technology found in the RADOX cable family significantly improves the cable’s insulation, extending operational life, while minimizing installation time and maintenance costs. RADOX cables are halogenfree with unprecedented flexibility, and include power, signal and communication cables. Click HERE for more information

  • Fiber optic cable systems

    Designed for harsh environments

    HUBER+SUHNER offers a wide range of FO cables, connectors, cable assemblies, fiber management and cable systems designed withstand the harsh environments of onshore and offshore applications. Each solution can be customised to meet specific requirements. Click HERE for more information.

  • Antennas and RF components

    Continuous and reliable coverage

    Covering both smallband (e.g. Tetra) and broadband (e.g. LTE), the HUBER+SUHNER antenna portfolio is designed to support communication within windmills or across/through wind parks - both onshore and offshore. Click HERE for more information. 

  • GPS, RF and Power-over-Fiber

    Future-proof solution

    Whereas typical antennas are powered by electricity to receive satellite signals, HUBER+SUHNER provides a unique approch to power antennas directly via fiber optics, making them resistant to RFIs, EMIs and EMPs. This also allows distances up to 7km between the receiver and antenna, and can be expanded to a complete RF-over-fiber timing solution. Click HERE for more information. 

  • Lightning and EMP Protection

    Designed to the highest standards

    As a pioneer in the development of quarter-wave (QW) shorting stubs, gas discharge tubes, hybrid and data line protection, HUBER+SUHNER offers an extensive portfolio for a variety of applications that meets the highest of international standards. Click HERE for more information.

  • Optical switching

    Secure signal routing solution

    Polatis is a high-performance, all-optical switch with ultra-stable operation, as well as low back reflectionsand insertion loss. It offers new flexibility in establishing and maintaining a remotely controlled fiber optic network topology. In the event of network failures, the optical switch redirects the optical path to dark fibers, enabling communications to be maintained. Click HERE for more information.
