Ventus Engineering wins blade sensor technology challenge and earns a place in the CATAPULT Launch accelerator program
Ventus Engineering GmbH with headquarters in Vienna, Austria, was announced the winner of the wind industry challenge initiated by ORE CATAPULT in partnership with SIEMENS Gamesa with the topic: “How to monitor the wind turbine rotor and the entire swept area using wireless blade sensor technology.”
Wind turbine optimization using a laser technology
For the very first time, Ökoenergie in partnership with Ventus Engineering is using the LiDAR technology in order to increase the yield of the wind turbines and extend their service life. Because optimally maintained wind turbines run "rounder" and longer thanks to the lower material load. At the same time, a new sensor system is being tested so that the entire rotor can be checked and checked for the first time. These systems were developed by Ventus Engineering GmbH, a Viennese company that is active worldwide in the field of wind turbine optimization.
Ventus Group, an Austrian company continues to expand internationally its range of services for the inspection and optimization of wind turbines internationally
Ventus Group established a danish subsidiary Ventus Wind Services A / S. The danish based office will offer inspections and optimizations of wind turbines, including gearbox inspection with endoscopy and drone inspection of rotor blades.
