Each turbine is fitted with an advanced RIU (Remote Interface Unit) and a GSM linked SIM card. Machine and component readings are taken every second and accumulated and relayed back to the monitoring centre every minute. Turbines are continuously reacting to changing conditions to maximise energy production and minimise machine wear and exposure during extreme weather conditions.
The Galway based monitoring centre operates 24 x 7 – 365 days a year and will oversee the operation. The service staff can remotely tune turbine settings, upload software fixes and stop and start turbines should conditions require.
Turbine owners have access to a user friendly web based Client Interface to provide them with real time updates on wind speed, wind direction, turbine performance and buttons to stop, start or reset the turbine.
