One of our Post-Doctoral Research Associates, Richard Williams, got the opportunity to witness the installation of sensors on two near-shore Siemens 3.6 MW wind turbines owned and operated by Ørsted.
Work Package 3.1 is investigating how oil debris and oil condition sensors can provide information on the health of wind turbine lubricated components and lubricating oil. The project has three partners: Durham University, Ørsted and C.C.Jensen. Richard Williams (Durham University) is the researcher working on the project. He was in Copenhagen on the 24th of January 2019 to witness the installation of sensors on two near shore Siemens 3.6MW wind turbines owned and operated by Ørsted. The Oil Contamination Monitor (CJC® OCM15), which measures particles and the condition of the oil, was supplied and installed by C.C.Jensen and is now giving valuable baseline data for the project. During the trip, Richard also took the opportunity to visit the test facilities at C.C.Jensen in Svendborg.
