Not all wind turbines are created equal – especially when it comes to extreme environments such as Arctic conditions. The Northern Power 100 Arctic turbine is based on Northern Power Systems’ original Northern Power 100 model, which got its start in the cold environs of rural Alaska. Through more than 15 years of operating experience and design enhancements for arctic applications, Northern has created an arctic turbine model that is truly best-in-class for cold and icy environments.
There are many ways in which cold and icy conditions can affect the general operation of a wind turbine. Most electronic devices have operating parameters that do not encompass extreme cold conditions. And if a turbine has a gearbox-laden drive train, it will most likely require specialized hydraulic fluids and heating elements.
Additionally, servicing wind turbines in cold environments can be a significant and costly endeavor. The ability for service personnel to access and check tower bolts and access the technology housed in the nacelle can cost time and money – especially if access avenues are exposed to the elements.
Some of the important features that make our Northern Power 100 Arctic turbine a specialized solution for your renewable energy needs:
For all of these reasons, our technological advancements and turbine design make the Northern Power 100 Arctic turbine the right choice for cold and icy environments.
