Moog has announced the launch of its new AC Moog wind turbine pitch system. Adopting a compact modular architecture, the new system has distinct advantages in safety, reliability and an overall reduction in the cost of energy, in addition to a remote terminal usability feature as well.
The new modular design of Moog pitch system is easy to integrate into customers’ turbines and is less complex since the total number of separated components is reduced. Key components of the system are TÜV certified for compliance with the certification guideline GL2010 and the international standard ISO 13849-1. The new AC pitch system has been integrated in Envision Energy’s new 4MW offshore smart wind turbine and has been put into operation in Rudong intertidal wind farm. The Envision 4MW model is designed to exploit the wind resources in China’s coastal and offshore area.
