Rittal GmbH & Co. KG is the world's leading supplier of enclosures, power distribution, climate control, IT infrastructure and software & service for the protection and safe operation of electrical systems.
Wind turbine manufacturers face enormous challenges in the construction and operation of turbines. With this in mind, Rittal and Eplan offer effective solutions to radically accelerate the planning and production processes which can significantly reduce costs.
“We supply all wind turbine manufacturers worldwide, directly or indirectly via panel-building and switchgear engineering, and tap into significant cost-cutting potential through automation solutions and digitally integrating processes along the entire value chain,” says Dr René Umlauft, Managing Director of Sales at Rittal.
In close collaboration with sister company Eplan and their software tools, Rittal is digitising and automating processes in enclosure design, planning, configuration and integration that were previously manual. The result is greater efficiency leading to compelling benefits in the investment and operation (CAPEX, OPEX) of wind turbines.
Rittal products deliver the strength, vibration resistance and corrosion protection vital to turbine dependability.
Highly solid and durable AX compact enclosures help ensure the pitch system located in the rotor hub operates reliably. To shield frequency inverters and control and safety components in the turbine’s nacelle or tower, Rittal offers modular solutions based on its new VX25 large enclosure system.
The company also provides the Blue e+ climate control system, the world’s most advanced and efficient cooling units, to ensure that perfect temperature and conditions are maintained in the enclosures. Furthermore, thanks to the IoT capability of the units, targeted maintenance can be planned and organised more intelligently.
Rittal’s modular Ri4Power system allows for the configuration of low-voltage switchgear in compliance with any relevant standards. In addition, options for energy storage systems range from individual enclosures to complete containerised solutions.
Rittal also offers modular edge data centres, featuring low latency and maximum security for processing data.
