Upcoming Webinar

The majority of wind turbine failure is caused by faults in the drivetrain.  Vibration-based condition monitoring is widely used for assessing wind turbine drivetrain components, however, the cost of such systems can be high.  In response to this, a novel new technique, based on airborne sound generated by the rotating machinery and using microphone sensors, is being developed which can reduce the cost of condition-based maintenance for wind turbines.

Join our webinar to find out how failures on the drivetrain can be detected using the airborne emissions detected by a microphone installed in the nacelle.  In addition, attendees will learn how faults can be localised, providing wind farm operators with vital information they can incorporate into their maintenance planning and scheduling.

X REOLTEC Assembly

The X REOLTEC Assembly took place last Monday in Madrid, Spain. REOLTEC, the technology platform of the Spanish wind industry, gathered in the event more than 50 representatives of the major wind energy companies.

Relevant issues as the technological response to the market situation and the new network codes, as well as the position of the industry in the offshore wind were addressed in the meeting.

In addition, some innovative R+D+I projects were presented and our project manager was there disseminating ACMWind.  The attendees showed a great interest in the novel technology that will be adopted by ACMWind product. Several questions raised from the presentation which conducted to an interesting discussion regarding technology benefits.

We cannot tell you how proud and excited the ACMWind team is to continue working hard on this innovative solution that promises to revolutionize the wind energy market! Closer to turn a disruptive idea into reality.

Closer to turn a disruptive idea into reality

Promising results obtained in field trials!

The image below displays in the frequency domain the signals measured in a commercial wind turbine using both conventional accelerometers and ACMWind acoustic system. This ´clean´ spectrum was obtained through a novel algorithm that reduces the noise in the acoustic signal. A significant correlation between signals measured with accelerometers and microphones were achieved proving ACMWind great performance.

Now the ACMWind team will be working on the last modifications in the hardware and software to get ready to market. Closer to turn a disruptive idea into reality.

Offshore Wind Energy 2017

Offshore Wind Energy 2017, one of the best events to exchange ideas, establish partnerships and to find out more about this increasingly competitive renewable industry, took place last week in London. With more than 400 exhibitors and impressive conference sessions, this remarkable event gathered around 10,000 participants from over the world.

The continuous pressure to reduce levelised cost of electricity (LCOE) has led in the past few years, leading and emerging players in the wind energy sector to develop longer rotors, taller towers and increase turbine power ratings. The latest technical challenges were exhibited in this event and the ACMWind could not be out of it.

Many visitors were introduced to ACMWind concept. Low-cost, reliable and non-intrusive, ACMWind is the first condition monitoring system to be launched on the market using an acoustic sensor array to detect faults in drivetrain components at an early stage.

ACMWind is set out to meet the wind industry growing demand and we are very pleased for getting visibility in such a major event. The combination of years of experience, passion, innovation and expertise are the core value that put ACMWind ahead of our competitors and for this reason we strongly believe in ACMWind success.

We look forward to seeing you in the next event!

The Future of Condition Monitoring Turbines

Wouldn´t it be good to know in advance if something is not going as should be with your wind turbine and repair it before it becomes serious and causes unplanned downtime?

With ACMWind you can get the most of your rotating machinery, listening to what it tells you! Our innovative system successfully installed in the north of Spain since September is currently being tested and will remain gathering data continuously until mid-2017. Based on acoustic principles, this condition monitoring system will be able to detect faults in the rotating machinery of wind turbines at an early stage.

At the moment, the acoustic data collected is being analysed to optimize the algorithms for fault detection at the earliest possible stage. Our next step is to develop Ad-hoc hardware and software with the specific requirements encountered.
