The Vestas Cold Climate Solutions include Vestas Low Temperature Option, Vestas Ice Detection™, Vestas De-Icing™ and Vestas Anti-Icing System™, which can be combined with additional options and solutions such as Vestas Ice Assessment™ and Vestas Ice Control to enhance the performance of the power plant. Vestas Low Temperature Option The Vestas Low Temperature Option enables wind turbine operation in ambient temperatures as low as -30°C and safe withstanding of an ambient temperature as low as -40°C in pause. By using heating elements, it ensures continued and safe operation of temperature-sensitive components. Installed on more than 5,000 turbines worldwide, Vestas Low Temperature Option is a proven high performer in cold climate conditions. Vestas Ice Detection™ The Vestas Ice Detection™ system assesses the ice conditions on the rotor, enabling operational strategies to increase safety. Through sensors installed on each blade, it monitors changes in the natural frequency flow oscillation produced by the turbine operation, enabling to evaluate the risk of ice throw. Vestas’ solutions for ice detection also include nacelle-based ice detection, which monitors ice conditions on the nacelle, and power curve-based ice detection, which detects ice build-up through the degradation of the power curve performance.
