Statoil has been awarded a grant from ENOVA to test the condition monitoring capabilities of the Kongsberg EmPower system for the floating wind turbine Hywind Demo.
Statoil will monitor the condition of the turbine using the EmPower system, and evaluate its functionality to discover early signs of fault, and calculate remaining lifetime for main components. Kongsberg EmPower is a turbine independent decision support system based on Kongsberg's automation and decision support systems for the defence and maritime sectors as well as offshore oil and gas. Installation of the system for the Hywind Demo will be conducted during spring 2016.
