Renewable Energy supported by Lapp UK

The importance of using renewable energy has been present for a number of years, since discoveries were made upon the earth's rising climate that has the future of human living at best interest. Most people agree that to help postpone and reduce the impact that it has on us and our environment, everyone must invest and employ more in renewable energy sources, such as wind, solar and water energy.

Lapp UK are a company that have taken an initiative into developing and supplying the required cables and other relative equipment to employ these renewable energy systems and technologies. The chairman of the board, Andreas Lapp, said that “the field of renewable energy is not just a boom market for Lapp, but is also an obligation to commit ourselves to protect the climate and environment”.

Wind Energy

Lapp is a leading supplier and builder or wind energy units. Not only are the units supplied, but the data and control cables are built – tailored to the unit to help make the wind energy unit able to withstand extreme pulling and twisting loads. Lapp identified this, and created the OLFLEX® H07BN4-F torsion resistant single core rubber cable. The cable has abrasion resistant outer sheath and temperature range of 35˚C to 90˚C and a conductor that is specially designed to allow for torsion, making the cable ideal for use in wind energy from the moving gondola to the bottom transformer.

The OLFLEX® CLASSIC 110 control cables are excellent for cabling within the gondola with the highly flexible OLFLEX® FD CLASSIC PVC power chain cables for the transition to the gondola in the tower. The UNITRONIC® data cable and EPIC® industrial connectors are designed for the installation of the machine house.

Solar Plants Energy

These cables come under a range of different product lines with products including g LAPPTHERM® SOLAR plus, LAPPTHERM® SOLAR XL, LAPPTHERM® SOLAR SR and LAPPTHERM® SOLAR V4A. These solar products from Lapp UK mean that whatever your problem is – or what you’re system requires, Lapp UK have a solution or fitting part for your processes, applications and systems – all around the world.

Every single one of the Lapp Solar range is weather resistant and also resistant to UV rays. The EPIC® SOLAR connector with wings is perfect for quick installation.

Bioethanol Plants

Bioenergy is another type of renewable energy that has quickly taken off. It has had a massive impetus from the requirement to add bioethanol to the petrol sold at filling stations. Cables from Lapp that include the OLFLEX® CLASSIC 110 control cables and the halogen free version of OLFLEX® Classic 130 H are used for everything from shredders to tanks.

Lapp UK is working hard to help ensure renewable energy is embraced by everyone, with a number of different energy resources being thoroughly researched and developed.
