The energy generation by means of hydropower offers enormous future potential, since the average energy density is five times higher than with wind power and ten times higher than with solar cells. However, it also poses particular challenges for the used energy supply systems - two vertically installed E4.1 energy chains together with chainflex® servo, power and control cables ensure maximum service life. Thus, the energy supply system meets the requirements for reliable operation without maintenance over five years, and mechanical resistance to the highly dynamic shaft movements in the vertical and horizontal directions. In addition, it does not require a large amount of installation space, and is very light compared to metallic alternatives.
Requirements for the e-chainsystem®: maintenance-free for a period of five years, equivalent to 20 million double strokes
