Fall Protection Inspection and Care, what you don’t know can hurt you

Wind Turbines can be a dirty environment full of various kinds of oils, paints, solvents, and lubricants.  Daily inspection for obvious wear and tear like cuts and rips are normal but what about the dirt, oil and other contaminants that can get on the product, are we paying attention to the less obvious hazards? In

Webinar: Holistic Performance Monitoring of Wind Farms – Comparable performance measurement on any turbine, in any wind farm, at any time

    Determining the true performance of each wind farm turbine is extremely difficult if not impossible. Nowadays performance measurements in wind farms are limited to single turbines with free wind sectors, defined flat areas and using dedicated met masts. Although lidars have the potential to replace met masts they are limited to the same

Webinar: Making short lived pitch bearings work longer

    Pitch bearings spend long periods in a fixed position. When they do move, the motions are small in amplitude and low in speed. These conditions present challenges in developing lubricant films in the bearing, which can result in premature failure. Other issues include insufficient system stiffness and manufacturing quality defects. What can an
