Project Profile: Wind Energy Structural Study
Value Promise: SSOE provided on-site assistance at the fist beta site unit which has prepared this company for additional istallations and further enhancements to the turbine and balance of system design.

Vertical Axis Wind TurbineWind Energy Corporation is executing a multiphase project at two seperate locations. SSOE is providing design and application engineering services for a new vertical axis wind turbine. In the first phase of the retrofit project, SSOE is optomizing the design of the turbine unit, its structural supports, and power electronics integration. In addition, the project scope includes a complete system integration of prototype vertical axis wind sail system. SSOE also provided inverter specification, electrical permit drawings, and controls system development.

As part of SSOE’s value promise, SSOE provided on-site assistance at the first beta site unit which has prepared this company for additional installations and further enhancements to the turbine and balance of sytem design.

The second phase of the project, SSOE is delivering product development support wich required multidiscipline team coordination. This effort includes control and transmission development, inverter specifications, and system integration for planned installations – executed by our electrical controls team. SSOE’s structural team provided specifications for tower mounting and building integration. By utilizing a planned installation project delivery method, SSOE will deliver a smooth schedule based on timelines and critical milestone.
