Digitally Controlled Hydraulic Drive Train

In its June 2013 ‘MHI Global’ newsletter, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) has released more information on the 7 MW SeaAngel wind turbine and the demonstration 2.4 MW Digital Displacement® transmission which has been under test within a wind turbine at Yokohama Dockyard & Machinery Works.

The 7 MW machine will be installed in the UK in late 2013. The 2.4 MW machine has been operating since the beginning of 2013.

Artemis is proud to be included in the following comment by Shin Maekawa (Head Engineer of MHI’s Offshore Wind Turbine Development Project Department) which is included in the newsletter:

During development, many unforeseen events are bound to occur. This time, the Wind Turbine Business Division, the Shimonoseki Shipyard & Machinery Works, the Technology & Innovation Headquarters, the Yokohama Power Systems Manufacturing Department, and Artemis Intelligent Power pooled their knowledge and experience to design counter-measures. When the DDT was built into the wind turbine and began to generate power, the Artemis engineers were thrilled to see technology from their lab used in a product which would benefit the world. It was apparent that just like at MHI, ‘engineering blood’ ran in their veins“.
