Your Partner in Optimal Sensor Placement

As the UK lead in the USA-UK Bilateral Collaboration Consortium, we played a central role in the Optimal Sensor Placement for Physics-Based Digital Twins project, driving forward the design and implementation of advanced wireless instrumentation.

The project focussed on identifying optimal sensor placement for digital twinning technology to enable informed and optimised O&M planning and elimination of unnecessary precautionary inspections and interventions for the global offshore wind industry.

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.
