Power Generation

Olsen Actuators have a wealth of expertise in supplying Electric Roller Screw Actuators and electro-mechanical solutions to the Power Generation industry. Our clients have been able to vastly improve reliability, precision and efficiency from employing our actuator solutions.

Actuators in the power generation industry are typically found in applications such as turbine control in power stations, pitching and control in wind turbines, solar panel angle adjustment, tidal power and wave power generation. In these instances, the actuator is the device that brings about linear or rotary movement. When using legacy hydraulic or pneumatic solutions then high energy costs, complex control/programming systems and messy fluid mean an electric solution is often highly preferable.

Olsen Actuators solutions for the Power Generation industry have included control systems for ventilation mechanisms, pitch regulation, damper and pipeline control, high performance valve control for butterfly, ball, plug and gate valves.

If there is something you need to move with more reliability, for longer and with significantly reduced maintenance then simply put, we can help find a solution to move it better.

Designed and tailored in the UK but shipped globally, our actuator solutions can incorporate integrated drive electronics, require no pipes or cooling and are incredible lightweight and compact in comparison with hydraulic or pneumatic systems.

Electrical actuators deliver a highly accurate level of force and can offer back-drive to measure resistance in both directions to enhance control. The demanding requirements of the power generation industry, and the often hostile environments actuators are required to operate in, mean our robust, reliable and powerful range offer an excellent solution.

Our actuator solutions are able to meet demanding specifications including:

  • Milspec COTS, EAR99 750g, -40°C to +70°C
  • Pressure compensation (for subsea)
  • Linear Rotary 2000 kNm
  • 650 bar operating pressures
  • 1 kN to 1500 kN
  • ATEX rated
  • Travel up to 2 metres
  • AC or DC voltage source
  • Cables
  • Servo drive electronics and software integration
  • Multi-axis control synchronisation

The longevity and low maintenance offered through our unique roller screw technology is particularly popular where system failure or downtime can be critical and very costly. A simple to use Windows based interface means the actuators are quick to install, commission and simple to maintain.

The efficiency benefits are also significant. Without the need for messy, leaky and corrosive hydraulic fluids, and with huge operational energy, weight and space savings available, our actuators and solutions are proving even more at home in an increasingly efficiency driven market.

Olsen Actuators are leading the way in pushing forward roller screw electro mechanical control systems. We are always happy to explore new applications, requirements and restrictions to find and develop new solutions to help drive the industry forward. If you have any questions regarding an existing project, or one in the pipeline, we would be happy help you.
