Can cable joints contribute to a fast connection on wind farms? Certainly! Lovink Enertech recently supplied LoviSil® Feed-In Joints for the Lünegraben Wind Farm in Germany. These special branch joints can be used without additional joints, with less cable length and a shorter installation time.
Upgrading wind farms that have been in operation for some time is becoming increasingly common in Germany. The lighter turbines are replaced by heavier turbines, which increases the efficiency of the wind farm, and this Repowering also ensures that the wind farm is future-proof again. Choosing the LoviSil® feed-in joint is a good investment. The liquid silicone technology offers optimal protection against harmonics and saving on extra cable joints saves extra excavation works.
The work at the Lünegraben Wind Farm was outsourced to the contracting company Nüsse Kabel. The training went smoothly because the technicians were very experienced in the field of medium voltage connections.
The installation in the field was carried out under the supervision of Lovink: “the technicians only knew of the heat shrink and cold shrink joints but are now also trained in the LoviSil® technique. They quickly mastered the step-by-step approach of connecting, electrical insulation, earthing and installing exterior insulation. They all liked the simplicity,” says Dennis Jansen.
Both the owner of the park and the contracting company were extremely satisfied with the service provided and the fast delivery time of the feed-in joints.
