New ways in

icing protection

Cold-climate locations are becoming more and

more attractive for wind turbines. However,

they do place increased demands on the turbine

technology. Already at temperatures below

five degrees Celsius and at a high relative

humidity, ice formation on rotor blades can

cause a reduction in output or even a shutdown

of the turbine. Anti-icing Systems are therefore

especially important at sites with frequent ice

formation – such as in Scandinavia. With the

new Advanced Anti-icing System, the Nordex

Group has taken a further step towards higher

yields at cold-climate locations.
