Reliable Online Condition Monitoring of Wind Turbines

The Crystal Rig wind farm is situated about 40 km East of Edinburgh and, with 25 wind turbines, is one of the largest onshore wind farms in Scotland. Fred. Olsen Renewables, which built and operates the site, was looking for a reliable supplier of online monitoring systems for vibration monitoring. It decided in favour of Schaeffler and the online monitoring system FAG WiPro s. Since the monitoring systems were installed, several cases of damage to generator bearings and gearbox problems have been detected at a very early stage. As a result, it was possible to plan the necessary repair work early on and prevent expensive, unplanned downtime.
