Ingeteam Group to present latest innovations at AWEA WINDPOWER 2018

Ingeteam and Indar (Ingeteam Group), independent suppliers of electrical conversion equipment, will exhibit at AWEA WINDPOWER 2018, to be held this year in Chicago, United States, May 7-10. At this occasion, Ingeteam will present its latest developments in the field of O&M predictive maintenance with its Ingeboards data analysis platform, as well as a broad range of cutting-edge wind energy products.

One of the largest wind energy events in North America, AWEA WINDPOWER 2018 expects to host thousands of industry professionals, who will have the opportunity to share their vision for wind power. At stand #2440, Ingeteam and Indar will showcase their latest products and O&M services, including power converters, generators, turbine controllers, Condition Monitoring Systems (CMS), Smart SCADA management systems and innovative developments related to the provision of operation and maintenance services for onshore and offshore wind farms.

Ingeteam offers low and medium voltage wind power converters, optimized for DFIG and FC topologies and specifically designed to fulfil the strictest grid codes. Air cooled, air/water cooled and full water cooled solutions for harsh environments, up to 15 MW. The power converters are designed to increase reliability, boost efficiency and reduce maintenance costs. The company is the world’s number one independent supplier of wind power converters. Since 1995, more than 25,000 wind power converters have been commissioned with Ingeteam’s technology, accounting for 41 GW of installed wind power capacity worldwide and an 8% market share.

Ingeteam is a leader in operation and maintenance services with more than 12 GW maintained worldwide. The company is a pioneer in the development and maintenance of monitoring technologies, operation and analysis of wind farms and has more than 20 years of experience in this field. During the event, Ingeteam will present its latest advances in predictive maintenance through its Ingeboards data analysis platform. Ingeboards is a big data software tool developed to provide information in order to make smart O&M decisions combining SCADA data, CMMS, logistics information and predictive maintenance.

Participants will also find Indar’s wide range of wind generators, manufactured in different topologies (DFIG, DFM and PMG amongst others). A leader in its sector, the company delivers generators to the most important manufacturers of wind turbines in the world and accounts for 25 GW of power installed worldwide.
