Safe -No Operatives in an operational asset
Expandable -The system works on any scale of wind turbine: 140m+ tower heights
Comprehensive – Xi’s system allows high resolution measurements to be made simultaneously over the whole system
Flexible – An adaptable measurement system that allows any configuration of sensors to be logged
Xi’s team of engineers are certified for both working at height and working offshore and have successfully performed vibration measurements safely on a wide range of wind turbines, from small systems where the only access to the nacelle is external ladder or by lowering the tower, to the world’s largest wind turbines -140m tall hybrid towers. The techniques and processes deployed have been developed and refined by Xi engineers by working on real systems. Each measurement is dependent on the system and requirements of the project, but in all cases the process allows measurements to be taken quickly, efficiently and above all safely. Sensors and cables are deployed on the tower and nacelle whilst the turbine is shutdown. Then the turbine is started and measurements take place with engineers remaining safely on the ground.
