New Technology Should Cut Costs
Siemens has developed a new power connection module that should cut costs of near-shore wind farms by up to 40%. The old power connection modules were big, bulky, and therefore had to be built on a separate platform. Siemen’s new module is lightweight and can be attached to the foundation of a turbine. This cuts down on time, materials, and transportation. The new module also uses biodegradable insulating fluid making it environmentally friendly.
