Wölfel Wind Systems Launches SHM.Tower at Offshore Wind 2017 in London

16 May 2017

– Do you want to know what loads your wind turbine (WT) is exposed to and how this affects the turbine’s service life?
– Do you need reliable data as a basis for the assessment regarding further operation of the WT?

Tubular steel towers can be exposed to strong vibrations which significantly affect the lifetime of a wind turbine. Since monitoring systems are missing, high fatigue loads are not detected - in particular if there is no power supply due to power failure. 

Our product SHM.Tower® detects the tower vibrations with sensors and documents extreme loads and fatigue loads as well as the lifetime consumption, for up to two months even without power supply

SHM.Tower® is easy to retrofit, so that a lifetime assessment is also possible at the end of the operating period of the WT. This means that essential information is available for a lifetime extension.

Please come to our booth in South hall, No. S-E4 or meet us at the poster session where we present another key competency – SHM.Foundation: “Robust and reliable Structural Health Monitoring solutions for foundation and tower to optimize operation and increase lifetime of offshore wind turbines”.

Looking forward to meet you in London!
