CC Jensen formally joined the project as a collaborating partner in April 2020 and are working closely with our teams at Durham University and Ørsted on Work Package theme 3.1:
Determining the condition of lubricated components through monitoring of oil condition.
They are the global leader in oil maintenance with more than 60 years of experience designing and manufacturing oil filtration solutions for the removal of particles, water, acidity and oil degradation products from hydraulic oils, lube oils, gear oils and diesel fuels. Their filter inserts are made of 100% natural cellulose fibres from sustainable resources: no metal, no plastics, and no chemicals. Research shows that 80% of oil related failures and breakdowns are caused by contaminated oil so preventive oil maintenance is an important factor to ensure optimum equipment reliability and avoid system breakdown. Of particular importance to our project is their experience in the wind industry. They are the world’s largest supplier of offline oil filter systems to wind turbine manufacturers, owners and operators which effectively reduce oil-related problems on gearboxes, hydraulic pitch and oil lubricated bearing systems.
