Efficient planning of service deployments
According to Fröhlich, the permanent detective work pays for itself through higher operational security resulting in improved profitability for the wind farm. Of particular benefit is the monitoring of areas where it is not easy or not possible to make visual checks. These include fine cracks inside the rotor blade and damage to the wood between the hub and the rotor blade, caused by damp. Service deployments can be planned more efficiently and with more foresight.
Further advantages include the lengthening of the service life of the rotor blades. That is a particular plus point at this wind farm as the rotor blades that are used here are no longer produced. Therefore in the case of irreparable damage, the complete turbine would have to be replaced.
