Security for wind power plants

Confidential, available, protected: IT security for your wind turbine

Our intelligent security concept for wind turbine automation offers reliable protection against cyber criminality – a very real threat for networked wind power plants. The security modules of our SCALANCE S family are easy to use and provide protection in a flexible, reaction-free and protocol-independent manner. This allows you to secure existing networks without the need to reconfigure network stations or to change the network topology.

The modules are specially designed for use in automation technology and seamlessly connect to the security structures of office and IT environments. Through a combination of security measures such as firewalls and VPN via IPsec tunnels, SCALANCE S reliably protects individual wind turbines and entire wind farms against:

  • Data espionage and manipulation

  • Unauthorized access

  • Automated break-in attempts

Your benefits at a glance

  • Lower costs and considerably less configuration work because several devices are protected simultaneously

  • Easy installation of new wind turbines and expansion of existing wind power plants

  • Minimized downtimes in the event of a fault

  • Increased plant availability thanks to C-PLUG (configuration plug): storage medium for fast device replacement without programming device (optional)
