Wind turbine monitoring
James Fisher Testing Services has unrivalled experience and expertise in the provision of structural health monitoring solutions for a on and offshore wind turbines.
JF Testing Services provides specialist structural monitoring support to ensuring safe asset operation, minimal risk and cost-effective maintenance programmes.
Experts in supporting new build projects for both onshore and offshore works, we also conduct retrofit installations offshore. Meeting the evolving needs of the renewables industry remains one of our priorities and drives us to undertake challenging projects which we deliver using our industry capabilities and exceptional professional standards.
Reasons for wind turbine structural monitoring:
- Design validation - obtaining structural response data under a variety of weather and sea state conditions to verify design model assumptions
- Short-term monitoring / problem quantification - assessing the extent of structural health issues on existing structures and monitoring any remedial solutions
- Long-term asset management - continuous monitoring to help plan preventative maintenance strategies and to enable asset owners to make informed decisions
- Independent project certification - ensuring regional project certification requirements to safeguard the quality and productivity of wind farm projects
Structural health monitoring software - TurbineWatch™
Incorporating our Strainstall Asset Management (SAM)™ system, the customisable TurbineWatch™ user interface operates and manages all data generated using modular and scalable open framework architecture.
The software capabilities of the TurbineWatch™ system include real-time processed information, systematic storage and retrieval of data and manipulation of multi-platform analysis. Fully flexible, the system enables a wide mix of sensors to communicate with the server in order to integrate data from any source and respond to the server configuration, for a completely dynamic two way communication.
