VENSYS Controls Rotor Position on Wind Turbines with TURCK uprox®+ Sensors
During the Olympic Summer Games in August 2008, China appeared as an environmentally-friendly host. In addition to the use of solar energy and terrestrial heat, the organizers relied primarily on wind energy, which alone was intended to cover 20 percent of the energy demand of all Olympic event facilities. The electricity is generated in the Beijing-Guanting Wind Park where 43 wind turbines from Chinese wind energy market leader Goldwind are in operation. The wind turbines are provided by VENSYS Energy AG, produced 7,000 km away in the city of Saarland, Germany.
