Maintenance: as prominent a topic as ever
Maintenance is a key theme in wind power due to it being responsible for a significant portion of wind turbine costs. Operators need to be able to perform accurate machinery inspections and have a clear understanding of component health to avoid unexpected downtime and the consequent costs. This generates the demand for more efficient methods that utilize modern technology.
One of these technologies is the cloud, which is driving change in how monitoring and maintenance is performed. This medium provides the functionality for remote diagnosis, real-time reporting, and data management. SKF designed SKF Enlight with this in mind. As a mobile- and cloud-based solution, SKF Enlight enables company-wide sharing of maintenance and inspection data.
SKF will present the benefits of this product at WindEurope Conference and Exhibition 2017 and explain how it can help operators reduce costs and boost the efficiency of inspection processes.
SKF Enlight enables you to:
- Improve inspection efficiency
- Reduce costs for equipment and software
- Clarify what data actually means
- Enable better decision-making based on higher volume of valuable data
- Standardize inspection data and processes across all relevant teams
- Include corrective actions within inspections to rectify any faults
SKF will also showcase a number of other products, such as the condition monitoring system Multilog IMx8 and spherical roller bearings designed exclusively for wind turbine main shafts.
