Dewesoft to monitor world’s biggest offshore wind farm


The energy company Vattenfall has selected Dewesoft to provide the tower monitoring solution at what will be the world’s largest offshore wind farm.

The system will perform predictive maintenance on the towers of the wind turbines to keep the wind turbines operating at the highest possible level by preventing failures.

The wind farm, Hollandse Kust Zuid, will be 18 to 36 kilometers off the coast of the Netherlands near The Hague and Zandvoort. When fully operational, the 140 turbines have a combined capacity of 1.5 GW.

The monitoring system will be composed of sensors distributed along with the height of the towers providing acceleration, inclination, and velocity measurements.
