GRAM & JUHL & DEIF WIND POWER ENTERING A STRATEGIC COLLABORATION TO SUPPORT DEIF’S WIND TURBINE CONTROLLER WITH TCM®
DEIF Wind Power Technology and Gram & Juhl A/S have entered a strategic partnership to provide TCM® for DEIF’s wind turbine controller. The worldwide used TCM® solution from Gram & Juhl will be an integrated part of the controller retrofit package from DEIF Wind Power Technology.
DEIF Wind Power Technology develops high quality standard solutions to optimise turbine pitch control, such as the pitch drive – Integrated Motor Drive, IMD 100, and pitch components for wind turbines. Gram & Juhl is known for the worldwide used TCM® (Turbine Condition Monitoring) solution that extract data based on vibration measurement to determine the turbines health status and provide recommended actions for optimal maintenance scheduling.
The motivation for the two companies entering the cooperation is to unleash the full potential of optimal operation and maintenance of wind turbines. DEIF is to offer the complete technology package needed for wind turbine owners or service providers, including the TCM® system from Gram & Juhl. Furthermore, Gram & Juhl will offer remote monitoring.
“The strategic partnership has the potential, by close integration between the controller and the TCM® condition monitoring system, to unleash synergies with respect to optimal operating points and fatigue costs including estimation of remaining useful lifetime of the wind turbine. This will benefit the wind turbine owner” said CEO of Gram & Juhl, Axel Juhl.
