The first wireless wind turbine blade sensor for automatic, real-time condition-based monitoring

Project description

Three-in-one monitoring solution for wind turbine blades breaking into the market

Maintenance costs account for the largest part of total annual costs of a wind turbine, with blades representing the lion's share. Austria-based company eologix sensor technology gmbh has unveiled eolACC, the first condition-based monitoring system mounted on blades that combines three features: blade crack detection, pitch angle measurements and blade icing detection. The new monitoring solution will save wind turbine owners up to EUR 2.9 million throughout the whole turbine lifetime, recovering the investment in eolACC in the first two months. With EU funding of the project EOLOGIX, the company will coordinate commercial and project management activities to bring the product to the market. A two-year payback period and an annual revenue of about EUR 12 million till 2024 is expected.
