Enercon is installing the ice detection system Rotor Ice Control from fos4X in its wind turbines. From winter 2018/2019 it will be possible to retrofit the fos4X ice detection system directly from the turbine manufacturer.
In a few months the system will also be available in new Enercon turbines. The ice detection system Rotor Ice Control detects ice build-up directly on the rotor blade, stops and automatically starts the system after defrosting. The system can also control the blade heating. Rotor Ice Control is based on the modular, fiber optic sensor platform fos4Blade, which can also be used for load measurement or structure monitoring.
