SLPS is a Grounding Brush Upgrade Kit to reduce static and lightning exposure in Gamesa models G80, G83, G87, G90, G97 and G114.
An air gap in the OEM Lightning Protection System leaves these turbines open to lightning and static attacks, manifesting as Alarms 410, 426, 2106, 2118, and 700.
Without a continuous path to ground, lightning and static wreak systemic havoc, compromising turbine components and performance as high-voltage spikes arc across the gap.
AP Renewables bridges this gap with an economical, highly durable, consumable part that requires no modification to the existing OEM Lightning Protection System.
The SLPS is proven to increase availability by 1.3% on average in susceptible turbines by making up lost downtime, not to mention the benefits of reduced overall structural and electrical stress by simply grounding the turbine.
