Maxwell Technologies Reports Strong Demand For BOOSTCAP

Maxwell Technologies Inc. has reported that sales of its BOOSTCAP ultracapacitor products for wind energy applications have increased 40% during the first three quarters of this year as compared to the same period last year.

Maxwell is now supplying BOOSTCAP cells and multi-cell modules to several wind energy system integrators and turbine original equipment manufacturers in Europe, Asia and North America.

Ultracapacitors provide burst power for electrical blade pitch control systems that enhance the consistency of wind turbines' electrical energy output and ensure that rotor speed remains within a safe operating range by constantly adjusting turbine blades to compensate for changes in wind velocity, according to Maxwell.
