Munters protects high quality wind mill tower parts around the year
At Andresen Towers in Nyborg, Denmark, Munters desiccant dehumidification protects high quality wind mill tower elements before shipping.
Humidity control requested
When setting up the manufacturing plant in Nyborg, a new storage facility for the wrapped and ready-to-ship shells was a necessity. As an alternative to an expensive and traditional storage building, Andresen Towers decided to go for a flexible O.B. Wiik tent storage solution that also secured a much shorter construction period.
To avoid condensation problems in the tent storage, Siemens Wind Power requested the storage facility to be humidity controlled. Munters recommended to keep the relative humidity constantly below 60% RH. At this level, condensation will be avoided and the steel parts safely stored around the year.
New generation dehumidifiers selected
The tent storage supplier O.B. Wiik has an extensive and year-long experience with Munters and thus included Munters dehumidification systems in the design of the 75.540m³ tent storage.
Two desiccant dehumidifiers were integrated, each with a nominal airflow of 9,500m³/h. The dehumidifier type MX² 95 belongs to the new energy efficient MX² series generation, an update of the well-known robust MX desiccant work horse, of which thousands have been installed in storage facilities all over the world.
