Ricardo and Kongsberg have announced that they have signed a framework agreement that will see Ricardo support the development of the Kongsberg Wind Farm Management System (WFMS) as well as related condition monitoring systems for a range of other industrial sectors.

The Kongsberg WFMS is a turbine independent decision support system. It surpasses the functionality found in wind farm supervisory control and data acquisition systems, and offers a user interface based on Kongsberg’s wide ranging experience in automation and decision support systems for the defence, maritime and offshore oil & gas sectors. A significant aspect of the collaboration will be investigating the potential integration of the new Ricardo SensorLife technology into Kongsberg’s WFMS. Ricardo believes that SensorLife could result in significant reductions in the cost of energy of wind farms. These savings would be realised through the more accurate prediction of the remaining useful life of key components and the consequential ability to reduce cost through proactive maintenance.
