Machine reliability for the wind industry – Keep the blades turning

Wind-generated electricity is becoming more important as a pillar of the energy transition. Onshore Wind turbines are one of the primary electric power generators nowadays, although offshore wind turbines offer the greatest potential in growth of the energy market. As a long-term partner of the wind industry, PRUFTECHNIK offers GL-certified online vibration monitoring and high-precision alignment systems for corrective actions on the drivetrain or for preparatory measurements before and during the installation of a wind turbine.

Benefit from the PRUFTECHNIK’s experience in the wind industry, with numerous applications realized in 70 countries over the past 40 years.

Our Condition Monitoring systems and GL certified Monitoring Center help operators and maintenance companies increase the availability of onshore and offshore parks through:

  • Remote monitoring of the turbine and regular vibration diagnosis service with results as a report or available via the web
  • Mobile diagnosis measurements for the localization of fault causes (vibration condition, sound measurement, etc.)
  • Torque measurements with overload monitoring and the detection of load
  • Condition Assessment: survey, inspection, documentation of turbine conditions
  • Condition Monitoring Partner Concept (CPC): “You measure – We analyze.”
