Anvil goes to Renewable UK 2013
On 5-7 November Renewable UK 2013 was held at NEC in Birmingham. This event is quickly becoming recognised as the renewables event to attend in the UK. This year’s event was attended by over 4,500 delegates, 250 exhibitors and 190 speakers.
Anvil attended this year’s event on the 7th which saw the event being open to members of the public. Companies from every area of the renewable sector were on show, however wind turbine/ power companies dominated with names such as, Siemens, Vestas, EWT, Wind Energy Solutions, Gamesa, Nordex, REpower and Temporis Wind.

Using the 3G mobile networks to provide connectivity to turbines is becoming more popular within the industry as mobile network coverage has greatly improved. It is highly cost effective and with a fixed IP SIM from Anvil in a 3G router, the wind turbine companies are able to have direct access to the turbine control systems enabling remote management, remote maintenance and activity log access. The same method is also used by small scale Hydro Electric stations and solar power farms.
