Validating the integrity of the foundations of each wind turbine is a regular maintenance requirement.
Taking periodic measurements, while adequate enough to detect most issues, does not tell the whole story. You can't know when the change happened, whether it was fast or slow-paced and when you do identify the issue, it might be already too late.
Damages on the foundations will have a direct impact on the tower resonant frequency: Windfit Foundation Monitor remotely measures this frequency with no human intervention.
Windfit monitors the foundations integrity on a daily basis using the tower resonant frequency.
The tower resonant frequency, or natural frequency, is measured multiple times every day while the turbine is operating.
The daily results, combined with a long-term trend analysis, allow an early fault detection and remove the need for costly periodic on-site measurements.
The continuous and online monitoring assures the structural health of wind turbines and helps you decide when a corrective actions is required.
Log in to your dedicated and secure Windfit dashboard from anywhere.
Efficiently compare and prioritize interventions on all your wind turbines.
Monitor the state and the recent trend of each turbine.
Detect slowly degrading problems as early as possible.
The measurement system is concentrated in a single module, quickly and easily installed in less than an hour and completely independent from the SCADA.
The Windfit module integrates various sensors such as a compass, a thermometer and a barometer. It autonomously selects optimal conditions for data acquisition, processing, and transmission to the web platform.
The Windfit web platform ensures the quality, processing and secure storage of information.
