Reduce operating costs of wind energy production with critical component intelligence
Premature drivetrain failures are a leading maintenance cost driver that can easily lower the profit margin in a wind turbine operation. As the industry evolves, and wind turbines get bigger and harder to reach (offshore), good quality real-time equipment health data becomes vitally important.
MetalSCAN technology empowers wind turbine operators, as well as manufacturers of wind turbines and gearboxes, to effectively manage gearbox and drivetrain health issues using wear debris monitoring. We detect early damage, track the severity of this damage, estimate the time to reach pre-defined damage limits, and provide key information for predictive maintenance decisions.
The outstanding reputation that Gastops’ MetalSCAN has established in the wind industry is second to none. MetalSCAN is a standard component of a modern condition monitoring system on many turbines and all major wind turbine manufacturers will install MetalSCAN in-factory upon request by the customer.
“At the onset of our partnership, Gastops inspired us by presenting a challenging vision of a novel, enabling technology that would push the limits of what is currently possible in the realm of machinery health monitoring.”
