Wind farm chooses Siemens turbines because of radio shielding

Löwenstedt community wind farm banks on radio shielding wind turbines from Siemens
The receiving stations of Deutsche Flugsicherung (DFS), the company in charge of air traffic control for Germany, are an important part of the wireless communication infrastructure of the aviation industry. One of these radio navigation stations, close to the village of Löwenstedt in Germany’s northern state of Schleswig-Holstein, supports communications of pilots aloft. At first, it did not appear feasible for a publicly-owned wind project to be erected close to this receiving station: To gain approval the wind turbines need to comply with highly stringent radio shielding requirements. Then, however, the farm planners opted for Siemens Model SWT-3.0-113 wind turbines – direct-drive units that are the only wind turbines offering the required protection against electromagnetic emissions. …
