Phoenix Contact and Wölfel Wind Systems combine their core competencies

Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) of rotor blades is a complex and demanding task that requires very good hardware as well as professional data analysis in order to be able to make really precise and early statements about structural damage to the rotor blade. For this reason, two specialists have now joined forces to offer wind farm operators the best possible combination of forces on the market.
Phoenix Contact offers innovative automation and connection technology for equipping your wind turbine or your entire wind farm. The products impress with their special robustness and clever functions. User-friendly operation and seamless interaction are a matter of course.
Wölfel Wind Systems is the European market leader in the field of structural monitoring of offshore wind farms and has built up a unique core competence in the market over decades, especially in data analysis today combined with AI. The combination of these competencies generates significant added value for wind farm operators:
• They are informed about damage and structural changes at an early stage and are thus able to act proactively.
• Maintenance intervals become more predictable, "black sheep" in your wind farm can be identified and targeted accordingly. For inconspicuous turbines, you can extend the intervals accordingly.
• The costs for service calls as well as downtimes can thus be significantly reduced.
"We expect this cooperation to bring significant benefits for operators, because the interaction of professional hardware from Phoenix Contact with the high level of data analysis expertise from Wölfel Wind Systems will contribute to a noticeable optimization in operational management" says Dr. Bastian Ritter, Product Manager Monitoring Systems Wölfel.
