Ingeteam, a technology group specialized in electric power conversion, commissioned 50 GW of electrical wind power conversion equipment to date, thanks to consistently strong sales of wind power converters and wind control cabinets.

Ingeteam entered the wind industry in 1995 working on the development of variable-speed machines. They were the first manufacturer to launch DFIG Converters in the market.

“This steady performance is largely supported by our company’s long-term commitment to continuous innovation, backed by industry-leading R&D investment levels. 5 percent of the company’s turnover is re-invested in new product developments and over 400 employees work in R&D labs,” said Alberto Barcia, commercial director of Ingeteam’s Wind Business Unit.

Earlier this year, Ingeteam launched its latest innovation, a new-generation of wind power converters developed for high power DFIG application ranging from 6 to 8MW. This new converter technology includes FRT, SCR and SSR features.
