Wölfel Wind Systems has extended the existing SHM.Tower product with an inclination sensor in the foundation. SHM.Foundation provides the ability to detect tower and foundation damages at an early stage. Using methods of artificial intelligence (AI) and including EOC/SCADA data, a precise monitoring of the damage progress is possible. In addition, the system provides information on natural frequencies and the consumed lifetime. This allows a reduction of visual inspections and an optimized lifetime extension.
