Wind Energy

Harness the wind with IEWC and our full line of wire, cable and wire management products for manufacturers and sub-assemblers throughout the wind industry.

The renewable wind energy market is dynamic on a global scale. Large wind producing countries such as the United States and Europe are facing some future uncertainty due to legislative and economic instability. Meanwhile, emerging markets in Latin America, Africa and especially Asia have high growth potential going forward. Growth in the United States has come exclusively from land based turbines, while other markets such as Europe are investing heavily in off-shore systems.

Cost efficiency is the name of the game in the wind market. Efficiency has roughly doubled in the past decade, but more work needs to be done to make it a more attractive energy alternative. A key component of efficiency is limiting maintenance costs and downtime. All turbines must withstand the weather extremes at the turbine's base and the different weather 50 meters up at the rotor. Off-shore turbines have the additional challenge of dealing with roiling ocean waves and highly corrosive salt water.

The wire and cable you choose plays a critical role in the reliability and efficiency of wind turbines. IEWC offers control and motor supply cable, instrumentation cable, power lead wire, flexible cord, fiber optics, bare copper and wire management products for the following applications: gearbox and generators, control and monitoring systems, tower elevator systems, junction boxes, tower cables and grounding systems.
