Wölfel Wind Systems launches SHM.Tower at Offshore Wind Energy 2017 in London

Dear Sir or Madam,

  • 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!
