For the first time in the Danish wind turbine industry, an entire wind farm has been retrofitted with a new control system
The retrofit project was carried out by Spica Technology in Arrild wind farm consisting of 12 Wind World W4200 600kW turbines.
The wind farm is placed in southern Denmark and owned by Green Power Partners and managed by Momentum Gruppen.
After the retrofit installation, Momentum experienced far better direct access to the current operation of the turbines and the possibility to solve several challenges with remote access.
“As the first turbines were retrofitted, it did not take long before we experienced major positive progress. With more accurate data from the turbines, we can now troubleshoot the causes that interrupt the operation,” explains Jeppe Lyngaae, Senior Technical Manager for Momentum, and continues:
“Now, the turbines deliver more flawless operation. Since the retrofit installation, there are strong indications that the operation will the dominated by planned maintenance rather than service calls with limited troubleshooting in the control system as before.”
