IoT implementation sails into wind power

IoT implementation sails into wind power
North Sea wind farms are fighting some striking battles, and they aren’t about sea life. They began with the breakdown of Germany’s biggest turbine bearing structures after 15 weeks; predictive maintenance had planned for the structure to last 15 months. The result was a disastrous maintenance bill and a reengineering of the giant blades that literally shook the turbine to death.  Author: Joseph Zulick, Manager at MRO Electric and Supply

Minimising yaw brake noise

Minimising yaw brake noise
Maintenance of wind turbine generators (WTGs) aims to sustain efficiency levels and ensure continued reliability, whilst also dealing with any other concerns that may be raised. One issue that is becoming more common is noise generated by the operation of the equipment in the nacelle, as opposed to any noise from the turbine blades. Svendborg Brakes has turned its expertise on yaw brake noise and developed a solution that can be applied to the majority of installations.
