Protection System

Perfect lighting protection due to compact construction
Lighting Protection System

The lightning protection is realized according to IEC 61400-24 standard. A combination of sliding contacts and conduction cables enables a saftey and efficient conduction of the lightning current from the blade tip to the ground. All other electrical subsystems, like control system and pitch system, are located inside the main steel carrying structure of the turbine, assuring an optimal lightning protection.
