S&C Electric Company has announced the first real-world deployment of a new service offering to remotely monitor S&C's Wind-Turbine Style Vista Switchgear. This new service was pioneered on Vista switchgear at Infigen Energy's 50MW Kumeyaay Wind Farm, located 65 miles east of San Diego in Boulevard, CA, USA.
Infigen uses Vista switchgear in the base of all 25 of the 2MW wind turbines at its Kumeyaay Wind Farm. Installation on the first group of wind turbines took just two days and required minimal downtime for each turbine. S&C is now providing Infigen with monthly inspection and testing reports. In addition, the monthly reports provide Infigen with documented verification of the relay settings helping with on-site operational safety.
