Protection of Wind Turbines

Lightning and surge protection for wind turbines is paramount since these structures are especially vulnerable to lightning strikes due to their complex design, height and exposed location.

DEHN offers high-quality products for coordinated lightning and surge protection for the components of power supply systems. DEHN surge arresters also allow to protect equipment in telecommunication and signalling systems from the direct and indirect effects of lightning strikes and other transients, thus increasing the availability of wind turbines in the long run.

Moreover, DEHN offers manufacturers of wind turbines and sub-suppliers special engineering and test services to assess the safety of systems and installations against effects caused by lightning. DEHN also supports you in developing made-to-measure protection concepts.
