Bad Nenndorf/Germany and Zug/Switzerland, June 2016: BaxEnergy, a leading provider dedicated to deliver innovative turnkey solutions to renewable energy players for complete visualization, data analysis and optimization of their power plants, and ROMO Wind, provider of the patented iSpin spinner anemometer technology, are now offering their combined services to wind operators supporting them to achieve full wind turbine performance.
BaxEnergy’s innovative solution Energy Studio Pro® enables utilities, independent power producers and O&M service providers to run their power plants more efficiently, minimizes their energy losses due to downtime and slow responses to outages, and increases the overall yields maximizing the return on investment.
Thanks to a revolutionary approach to wind measurement, the bundled BaxEnergy/ROMO Wind services allow customers to benefit from the exact wind data delivered by ROMO Wind’s measurement technology iSpin, achieving full wind turbine performance.
The problem with wind data collection is that conventional anemometers, mounted on the wind turbine nacelle behind the rotor, provide not much accurate wind measurement data because of the distortion created by the rotor and nacelle.
ROMO Wind’s iSpin system uses proven ultrasonic technology to measure the wind where it first hits the turbine – directly at the spinner. In this way, iSpin is able to measure parameters which previously had been extremely difficult or impossible to measure accurately. The iSpin wind measurements are not affected by terrain, wake effects or turbulence caused by the rotor.
The ESP®-iSpin package gives wind farm operators access to a variety of new ESP® functions, such as tracking power curve changes, monitoring yaw misalignment as well as improved performance monitoring and analytics possibilities.
The new insights that operators gain with the combination of ESP® and iSpin lead to:
- Improved performance and monitoring through a whole new level of transparency of turbine data
- Enhanced wind farm management for a longer life of wind turbines
- Optimised preventative maintenance
- Better understanding of service and repair measures.
Energy Studio Pro® reliable measurements show that iSpin enables significant production increase to customers’ wind farm, providing up to 2% production increase through wind turbines that benefit from a permanent, correct alignment to the wind.
Dr. Simone Massaro, CEO of BaxEnergy, says: “We are looking forward to offering our customers this exclusive package. By combining state of the art wind measurements from iSpin with our ESP® platform, they will obtain the best performance measurement tool-kit available in the wind industry today.”
Jan Nikolaisen, Co-CEO of ROMO Wind, adds: “In this case, one plus one equals three. ESP® customers who install iSpin benefit from more than just the advantages of both products. The data they have in their ESP® application is much more comprehensive and enables analysis and insights not otherwise available. The combination of ESP® and iSpin creates full transparency of wind turbine performance.”
