Smart maintenance

The power of big data
Wind turbines can be challenging to reach. Remote diagnostics help to limit visits and fix issues remotely without compromising reliability. Round-the-clock monitoring can also detect errors before they become serious.

Key Facts
  • Siemens Gamesa was the first to install data sensors in wind turbines and maintains the industry’s largest amount of historical data
  • We use strength of personnel as well as O&M experiences to not just “see” what is happening, but understand why it is happening
  • This enables us to help our customers predict and prevent unscheduled downtime and thereby reduce cost
  • Diagnostic services include optimizing operations, performance boosting applications, and dynamic business models

Using big data to boost reliability

Siemens Gamesa maintains the industry’s largest collection of historical data, gathered from over 28,000 turbines worldwide. Inside each turbine, more than 300 sensors transmit over 200 gigabytes of data each day to our remote diagnostic center. Here, advanced analytics and round-the-clock monitoring convert data into insights.

This means we can predict and prevent unscheduled downtime, transition wind farms to condition-based monitoring, and extend the lifecycle of each turbine. By unlocking big data insights, we drive even bigger outcomes, such as new applications that enhance wind turbine technology and improved decision making.

Diagnostic service products
You’ll know when to act, with 24/7 monitoring of your SCADA and turbine alarms. If an alarm is detected, we’ll quickly email you and your site personnel with guidance on what action is needed.
Constant monitoring means that, when an alarm is detected, we apply knowledge-based alarm rules to quickly and accurately reset and restart a turbine without a site visit. Statistics and notification reports are shared for example on Wind Dialogue.
With the latest software on turbine controllers, interface computers, SCADA, park regulation, condition monitoring systems and more, production can be optimized and bugs fixed, for better performance, and improved stability.
For issues that can’t be solved by remote alarm management, we provide access to the relevant experts for troubleshooting. On request we can remotely identify the cause and try to fix it remotely, or suggest on-site actions.
This detection service recognizes any changes in your wind turbine generator from the parameters defined in its profile. We’ll notify you by email and correct these abnormalities on your approval.
By picking up vibrations on turbine components, sensors can lower the risk of slow- and fast-developing damages by early detection, and optimize maintenance strategies – such as automatic turbine shutdown or preventive repair. This helps to save service costs and reduce downtime.
To ensure smooth and reliable operations, our diagnostic center updates all protected endpoints daily and monitors sites 24/7, using a quarantining function to prevent threats from spreading.
Excessive wear on gears and bearings can lead to gearbox breakdowns. By detecting both ferrous and non-ferrous metal particles in the gear oil and connecting the oil particle counter to the condition monitoring system, we can help to prevent costly turbine failures.
By accurately pinpointing vibrations within the drivetrain, we can predict damage up to three years in advance. This allows for optimized risk and asset management, and minimizes downtime.
