Understanding the importance of Bolt Tension in Wind Turbine Integrity
- Engineering projects worldwide rely on critical bolting applications for safety and efficiency.
- Bolt failures are a major challenge, particularly in the wind energy sector.
- Accurate and continuous data of bolt tensions is crucial to prevent incidents.
- Hydraulic tensioners used in wind turbines have a fundamental problem with achieving correct bolt tensions.
- Many wind turbine bolts are not installed to specified preload, causing potential safety risks.
- Bolt tensions are typically checked only every 6 months, leading to potential loosening in between.
- Transmission Dynamics Technology offers live wind turbine monitoring for immediate and effective addressing of turbine bolting failures.
