Windkraft Simonsfeld has equipped its Austrian Senvion fleet of 35 wind turbines with fos4X ice detection systems. The company already equipped some of its wind turbines with the fos4X ice detection system Rotor Ice Control in 2018.
On four selected wind turbines with performance anomalies, the retroX system was installed instead of the standard ice detection. retroX consists of a sensor platform and software offering extended functionality. In addition to ice detection, the system enables the identificiation of yaw and pitch angle misalignments and the logging of loads experienced during turbine operation.
