With the increasing demand for clean energy, the wind sector continues to grow; and so do the challenges associated with achieving lower levelized cost of energy (LCOE). Unplanned downtime and repairs can be the difference between a profitable or unprofitable wind farm. Wind farm owners and operators must find ways to operate smarter and maintain profitability by controlling their operating and maintenance costs. Condition monitoring systems (CMS) provide insights into early fault detection that enable issues to be addressed at the right time and for the lowest cost.
Bently Nevada’s CMS and System 1 Wind software reduce operations and maintenance costs by proactively detecting impending drivetrain issues. From sensors and monitors to software and services, our comprehensive offering enables you to intelligently monitor wind farm assets, increase availability and decrease maintenance costs. Our condition monitoring solutions and services are integral components of a condition based maintenance (CBM) methodology and are applicable across all onshore, offshore, gearbox and direct-drive wind turbines.
Bently Nevada’s wind turbine condition monitoring experts understand wind turbine drivetrains and will provide insights to help you control your operating and maintenance budget. We’ll work with you to understand your instrumentation needs, configure and commission your systems and provide the monitoring services necessary to maximize the profitability of your wind turbines.
