VONK, solution provider for Power Conversion, Electrical & Instrumentation (E&I) and Control & Automation (C&A) challenges, and DutchVentus, developer of small windturbines, have recently signed an agreement to cooperate as partners for the design and delivery of Hybrid Power Systems (HPS).
In this solution, the wind turbines of DutchVentus are integrated into VONK‘s Hybrid Power System. Such systems are smart combinations of renewable power generation based on solar and/or wind, energy storage and energy distribution, all controlled by a smart Power Management System.
These green power solutions have already been successfully applied offshore, on Oil & Gas platforms in operation or lighthouse mode, and onshore, to provide different power consumers, equipment and industrial processes with green energy, if needed backed up by an emergency diesel generator. An example is the offshore Leman Echo production platform of Shell ONEgas UK where the solution was supplied in 2017.
DutchVentus is a wind turbine with a unique, patented rotor in which the blades are attached to the co-rotating outer housing. The wind turbine, with a diameter of 3.5 metres, has a nominal power of 10 kW. The wind turbine has already been installed at various locations in the Netherlands, often in combination with solar energy, such as on the Marker Wadden and at Basecamp IJmuiden.
