First unit of ACMWind installed in Italy

We are delighted of announcing that it has been installed the first ACMWind in Italy, at Basilicata region. This achievement is the result of the successful agreement between ACMWind and a company of recognized prestige from Italy.

One unit has been installed in a wind turbine rated 850KW and over the next weeks it will be moved to several others with different faults. The data will be accessed remotely and the ACMWind team will analyse them to identify the defects.

Failures contribute directly to maintenance/operational costs and consequently the cost of energy. Our purpose with ACMWind is to improve efficiency and increase profitability with a low-cost acoustic CM system able to detect faults in drivetrain components, reducing the downtime of the wind turbines and leading to considerable savings.  Thanks to this partnership ACMWind team will be working on the last modifications and improvements to the system to get ready to market in 2019.

Closer to turn a disruptive idea into reality. We will keep you updated with the latest ACMWind news!

Prototype Successfully Installed

ACMWind team is delighted to inform that ACMWind prototype has been successfully installed in the north of Spain. The system currently under testing will remain installed in a 1.3 MW wind turbine at ‘Los Castrios’ wind farm, gathering data continuously until mid-2017.

This pioneer solution commits to be highly competitive in cost and performance compared to the existing systems on the market. Based on acoustic principles, this condition monitoring system for wind turbine rotating machinery will be able to early detect faults in the machinery by installing an array of microphones between the gearbox and generator as shown above.

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!
