Windcluster has partnered with Onyx Insight to support the life extension strategy of its aging assets at one of the UK’s oldest wind projects. The five-year partnership has seen Onyx Insight install ecoCMS to monitor the condition of the four, 850kW V52 wind turbines at Windcluster Haverigg III, located at Haverigg airfield in Cumbria which will help to extend the lifetime of the Haverigg III turbines through to 2040.
By retrofitting both vibration and oil monitoring systems to the wind turbines at Haverigg III, a complete picture of the condition of each wind turbine and its oil health will be provided. The combination of vibration and oil provides better analytics and a more complete condition of the machine health and oil health. Consent to extend the life of these four turbines beyond 2025 was granted in October 2020.
