The Austrian based eologix sensor technology and Australian company Ping Services have announced the merger of the two companies. With the combined technology of the eologix on-blade sensor system and Ping’s continuous acoustic monitoring system the companies are delivering a complete blade monitoring solution.
 
The eologix sensor sits directly on the outer surface of the blade and provides ice detection, temperature measurement and continuous pitch angle monitoring amongst other vibration-based measurements. Ping’s monitor is mounted on the base of the wind turbine and detects changes in blade health and operation by measuring acoustic signals. It can also monitor for lightning events (using magnetic fields) and ice build-up based on blade sound. Additionally, a monitor has been developed to sit inside the blade to listen for structural damage. Using the combined system, the data from both monitors will be sent to one receiver and will be viewed by the operator on one dashboard.
 
Ping will retain operations in Australia while eologix will remain in Austria, with both companies servicing the global market. While the merger is effective immediately, the first joint product will be launched in 2023 under the combined business names, ahead of a rebrand in 2024.
