A large IPP uses Windfit as part of their windturbine maintenance routine to make sure no under-performance goes undetected after on-site activities.
A few weeks after installing Windfit, a very high rotor aerodynamic imbalance is detected. The user is alerted, the AEP loss could be as high as 4%!
A team is sent on site, finds one of the blades had been misaligned by more than 1.5° during a turbine maintenance activity, and corrects the issue.
Thanks to Windfit permanent watch and our client's quick reaction, the turbine is now optimised and ready to perform at its best during the windy winter period to come.
