RES renews and extends its Windfit®-connected turbines fleet
After a first successful year, RES and Sereema have announced the renewal of their wind-farm data and analysis partnership and an extension of the deployment program.
Sereema’s Windfit provides continuous monitoring and remote turbine diagnostic. Situated between the turbines and the wind, the multi-axis sensor box pairs with insightful online dashboards.
Windfit has been installed on the Vestas V66 turbines at RES’s Claves wind farm, providing data and analysis for over a year. This wind farm is located near the village of Roussas, and has been operating since its commissioning in 2005. Windfit has also been successfully deployed at the RES-operated Cuxac wind farm on V80 2-MW turbines.
The Windfit boxes installed include the latest up-to-date version produced by Sereema. Once the boxes were fixed upon the net mast and powered, details appeared almost instantaneously on the web portal for RES to see and collect data.
“The new design is really ergonomic and the set-up process, which was already pretty easy, is even simpler with the redesign,” said Enzo Perelli, RES’ Method & Performance Analyst.
