Safety Management

Orenda Energy Solutions’ Skye™ wind turbine has a hierarchy of systems to control the turbine as wind-speed increases, and ultimately bring the turbine to a controlled stop:

1. Electrical Load Torque Control

2. Hydrostatic Braking (patent pending)

3. Stall Regulated Blades

4. Active Yaw

5. Emergency/Parking Brake

6. Dynamic Resistive Load (Grid loss)

Wind turbine safety is of the utmost importance to Orenda, and the Skye™ wind turbine solution has been designed with safety management in mind.
