Energy Solutions partnership with Ampacimon

Energy Solutions partnership with Ampacimon for creating innovative dynamic cable and line ratings systems together.   Energy Solutions is increasing their cable temperature monitoring system (DCR) business by creating a partnership covenant with Ampacimon, a line monitoring system (DLR) company based in Belgium. Ampacimon has a complete product range of their ‘ADR’ monitoring products for overhead lines as Energy Solutions is focused on improving their ‘CTMS’ real time thermal rating (RTTR) monitoring products for underground land cables as well as submarine cables with integrated optical fibers. Ampacimon is a fast growing company operating worldwide…continue reading →

Brochure Ensol RTTR

Since 2006, Energy Solutions continuously worked on the development of the ENSOL Cable Temperature Monitoring System (CTMS). The CTMS is a powerful monitoring tool for high voltage cable systems. It is able to calculate “real time” the actual current carrying capacity of high voltage cables by measurements of the current and temperature. Our new brochure is now available.

Solar PV power station Duurkenakker

Engineering and consultancy for sustainable energy projects constitute a large part from the activities of Energy Solutions, especially wind energy onshore and offshore. Now, Energy Solutions has her first assignment to assist with the development of a solar PV power station. “Zonnepark Duurkenakker” with a size of approximately 50 MWp (MegaWatt peak), will be realized near Meeden. The activities of Energy Solutions consist of: cable route design for the grid connection cables and drafting the electrical specifications of the grid connection cables and the grid connection station.continue reading →

ISO 9001:2015 certificate

Low Harm project

Energy Solutions joins a large research consortium “Large Offshore Wind farm Harmonics Mitigation”. This consortium  ECN, TenneT TSO, CG Power Systems, TU Delft, TU Eindhoven together with Energy Solutions is supported by the TKI Wind op Zee programme. The objective of the research is to develop a more standardized, future-proof and cost-effective design approach to mitigate the effects of harmonics on offshore windfarm grid connections. The results will contribute to accelerate energy transition by reducing grid integration costs and connection bottlenecks. As consultant to windfarm developers, Energy Solutions will bring practical knowledge of…continue reading →

Nobelwind Offshore Substation

After a construction period of 15 months at Bladt Industries A/S in Denmark, the Offshore High Voltage Substation for the Nobelwind wind farm  was transported towards the concession zone in Belgium and successfully installed. The 980t substation is located 47km offshore and will collect and transform  165MW of wind energy.  Energy Solutions has assisted Parkwind N.V., being the developer of the Nobelwind wind farm, on the electrical engineering and construction management of this OHVS.continue reading →

Pluskwalificatie RIVM

In April 2016, Energy Solutions has successfully performed the “Pluskwalificatie” test for performing magnetic field calculations according to the instructions from the RIVM. The RIVM (Rijksinstituut voor Volksgezondheid en Milieu) is the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment. Magnetic field calculations according to the “Pluskwalificatie” are used in situations where multiple overhead high voltage lines are present in a small area. Since 2010, Energy Solutions was already qualified for performing magnetic field calculations according to the guidelines from the RIVM for standard situations. Energy Solutions decided to apply for the plus…continue reading →

Commissioning DTS en RTTR wind farm Gemini

Last month, Energy Solutions commissioned the Ensol Cable Temperature Monitoring System (Ensol CTMS) on wind farm Gemini. This monitoring system observes the temperature of the two 220 kV export cables between the offshore platforms and the onshore station and the 380 kV grid connection to the TenneT substation. A unique part of this project is the measured length of the cable connections. Despite the longest cable length in this project is more than 100 kilometres, it is still possible to measure a temperature profile for the complete cable length with a temperature resolution…continue reading →
