Monitoring makes good sense

Competition among wind farmers to make winning bids in tenders for new generation contracts, while maintaining a healthy return on investment is spurring innovation in operating technology. PhotonFirst looks at how integrated photonics sensing can help operators improve return on investment.

Turbine operators are learning that advanced photonic sensing can provide more detailed, real-time wind turbine monitoring data, informing them about the behavior and performance of key components such as blades, towers, gearboxes and cabling. 

This data will enable them to meet the highest safety standards, increase output, cut operating costs and extend operating lifetimes.
