- Exact detection of icing and exact local detection on rotor blade regardless of visibility conditions or access.
- Sensors and rotor blade heating systems can be used simultaneously for optimal efficiency.
- Sensors are taped onto rotor blades, no drilling, openings or wires necessary.
- Completely isolated sensors, no additional risk of lightning strike.
- Measurement data of icing conditions and temperature formation even during complete standstill.
- Modular product system from detection to “automatic re-start” (DNV-GL certified).
- Variable number of sensors per wind turbine for a solution based on your individual needs.
- No operational data and no calibration during operation necessary.
- Retrofittable- Savings on operational costs by completing installation during blade inspection!
Maintenance costs and operation is one of the main cost factors of a wind turbine and can make up to 40% of total cost. Rotor blade maintenance alone can account for up to one fifth. The majority of these costs can be traced back to missing or insufficient condition maintenance solutions. Currently the majority of rotor blade maintenance is carried out by industrial climbers who inspect and, if necessary, repair rotor blades. The largest international wind turbine manufacturers emphasize the need for continuous condition monitoring systems, especially for rotor blades.
eoIACC is the first on- blade continuous condition maintenance sensor based on sensors distributed over the rotor blade surface, especially on the blade tips.
