Hydraulic oil conditioning unit

Fritz Schur Energy has developed an offline oil conditioning unit (OCU) that works independently from the pitch system, enabling a full-time filtration and locally controlled cooling of the oil from the oil tank of the hydraulic power unit.

Hydraulic oil conditioning unit (OCU)

The OCU ensures a much more narrow operating temperature of the oil, avoiding overheating and offering cleaner oil at the same time. Both have a positive impact on the operation and the lifetime of the hydraulic system.

  • Improved lifetime on components in the hydraulic pitch system
  • Improved lifetime on hydraulic oil
  • Efficient continuous offline filtration of the hydraulic oil
  • Efficient continuous cooling for the hydraulic oil – controlled by independent thermostat
  • Higher uptime and thereby increased earnings
  • “Plug and play“ installation with all necessary components
  • Customization to fit any hydraulic pitch system

Since fitting the OCU six months ago we have experienced no downtime due to high pitch oil temerature in these two machines. The ROI varies across the farm but the highest loaded turbines have a payback time on the OCU of around 3 months and across the complete farm of 62 wind turbines the avarage payback time is less than two years.
