NTR PLC to equip all of its wind farms in Europe with the EPSILINE WindEagle solution
31 January 2023: NTR PLC, a leading sustainable infrastructure investor and asset manager, has chosen the WindEagle solution for deployment on all its wind farms in Europe. This follows successful “proof of concept” testing in France and Ireland, which demonstrated the high potential value of the equipment and the analysis capability of Epsiline. As a result, the WindEagle solution is now being deployed on NTR’s wind farms in Ireland, UK, Italy, Sweden and Finland, with a view to monitoring and optimising the entire fleet.
Epsiline’s WindEagle solution combines hardware, software, analysis, and reporting, to offer world-wide wind turbine owners a comprehensive analysis of key wind farm performance parameters. Epsiline can monitor and report on wind (resource) quality, turbine “static” and “dynamic” yaw performance, aerodynamic and mechanical blade imbalance, tower fundamental frequency and turbine directional alignment.
NTR PLC has chosen EPSILINE to handle the entire process on all its sites, including LiDAR supply and installation, recombination of WindEagle data with SCADA information, data analysis and reporting on each wind turbine campaign and support in the monitoring of improvements.
Joe Dalton, NTR PLC Head of Asset Management, commented:
“Thanks to independent and precise information from the sensors and data analysis services, the WindEagle solution brings real added value to optimise our wind farm production. We can isolate and resolve existing issues and gather information that will be useful for future monitoring of wind turbine condition.”
Christophe Lepaysan, EPSILINE CEO, added:
“We are proud to have been chosen by NTR PLC as it is a sign of continued confidence in the WindEagle’s ability to provide reliable and value-added data and recommendations to optimise wind farm performance.”
