Solution

3D measurement systems allowed precise determination of losses and mechanical inaccuracies in the wind turbine gearboxes.

 

Specially designed 3D scanner enabled advanced optimization of the repair process.

 

Determination of the maximum dimensional deviations from the ideal state allowed to adjust the tools, technologies and allowances during the surfacing process. Controlling the status of an element also allows for a more accurate determination of the correct date of the next service.

Results

Optimization of downtimes and shortening the repair time for a wind farm consisting of 50 turbines can save up to 200,000 PLN annually – all thanks to 3D measurement technology from Scanway.

 

Shortening the times of repairs has an impact on increasement of readiness and reliability of the wind turbines, which play a significant role in the Polish power industry.
