Absolute reliability for onshore and offshore wind farms

Modern wind power plants produce approximately 20 times more electricity than plants 20 years ago, all with a simultaneous reduction of costs. Still, wind farms are a large investment that require high availability. To ensure this, all components must work extremely reliably and in a fail-safe manner.

For many years, Balluff has worked together with leading manufacturers to provide you with just the sensors, measurement systems and solutions you need – specially tailored to the specific requirements of wind energy in onshore and offshore wind farms.
