Calculation specialist on structural load calculations

Calculation specialist on structural load calculations

FRECON has for a couple of years served as a calculation specialist for Danhydra, who is a supplier of tools and solutions to the global wind industry.

It is FRECON’s long and successful track-record in design and calculations for wind turbines which is the backdrop of the collaboration with Danhydra A/S and the customers of Danhydra. The company’s solutions are used for the installation and servicing of wind turbines.

Claus Mølgaard Jensen, CEO in FRECON:
“Our close, stimulating collaboration with Danhydra started less than two years ago. We usually collaborate with Danhydra on structural load calculations, doing the lion’s share of the work back at the office, but always in close dialogue with the customer. This provides an excellent opportunity to get ongoing feedback from our (senior) resource staff, which can add new aspects to a project.”
 

Examples on calculation tasks for Danhydra:

  • Pitch-lock for a leading wind OEM (further development and structural verification)
    A pitch lock is a device used in various repair tasks in a turbine hub, which enables the blades to be locked in place during repair. Additional iterations were needed before the structure was strong enough to be able to withstand the heavy loads that arise during strong winds. Today, the pitch lock has been put into production and operation.
  • Calculations on tool to handle extremely heavy loads during blade installation (cogwheel calculations – thinking outside the box was needed). Today, this tool is also being manufactured and in operation at an end customer of Danhydra.
We experience every time how FRECON staff are equipped with high-calibre expertise which we can infuse directly into our own project teams. They are also directly involved in project meetings and reviews with the end customer, providing us with valuable three-way collaboration.
