ATV leverages all its experience to serve players in the field of renewable energies.
The energy market...
In parallel with traditional energy markets, ATV Brakes is constantly adapting to meet the expectations of renewable energy players. Hydroelectric dams, wind turbines and tidal turbines are just some of the diverse applications with constantly evolving demands. ATV Brakes supports renewable energies with braking solutions adapted from its product catalogue or fully developed to meet customer specifications.
Partners of wind turbine manufacturers
ATV Brakes has been a partner of wind turbine manufacturers since the outset of its industrial adventure. To stand out from standard hydraulic brake manufacturers, ATV has developed an electromechanical brake for the gearless wind turbines made by the German company ENERCON. The EM401 with a capacity of 400KN is designed to secure maintenance access to the rotors but also to stop them in case of emergency.
Wind and water energy
ATV brakes have a role in different stages of energy production: blocking for the maintenance of generator axis, emergency stop, safety of dam gate hoists, maintenance bridges, etc.
ATV considers all project proposals, from innovative micro-turbine solutions to the largest hydroelectric dams on the planet.
ATV, the partner of prestigious projects!
In the late 1990s, the Chinese manufacturer TZ entrusted ATV with the supply of 40 emergency hydraulic brakes for gate lifting gantry cranes in the largest hydroelectric plant in the world, the Three Gorges Dam.
This prestigious project remains to this day one of the most important references in the field of renewable energies.
