Efficient blade heating
Wicetec helps You to prevent icing on wind turbine blades!
We supply wind turbine blade ice prevention systems for new turbines and as a retrofit solution. Just take a look around, learn how You and Your turbines can harvest all available wind energy through the winter.
Maximum energy production through the winter
In wind energy project financing, the uncertainty of energy yield calculations plays an important role. Icing of wind turbines in cold climates increases this uncertainty. With Wicetec Ice Prevention System, this increase of uncertainty can be omitted. Less uncertainty means lower financing costs, and vice versa.
Patented heating element technology
Currently more than 700 MW of installed wind power capacity are equipped with this carbon fabric heating element technology!
Wicetec Ice Prevention System is controlled by a rugged industrial real-time controller boosted with wind farm level SCADA system. Reliable and sensitive ice detection enables heating only when needed, thus minimizing the used electricity consumption. Typical energy consumption of WIPS is less than 0.3% of the Annual Energy Production (AEP).
WIPS has flexible communication interfaces for easy integration to other systems and for remote service support.
