Pulse Structural Monitoring, part of Acteon Group, has signed its first contract to provide digital structural monitoring and insight services on an offshore windfarm
The contract, which provides for the design, fabrication, installation and commissioning of its monitoring instrumentation on three wind turbine foundations to be installed offshore Taiwan, was awarded by global offshore wind leader Ørsted.
Pulse head of sales Brian Taylor said, “Being one of Ørsted’s partners on the Greater Changhua windfarms is a major milestone for us.
“As a company, we have more than 20 years of experience in our core offshore markets and have completed some smaller renewables projects, but this contract recognises that we have transferred those skills to the offshore wind and renewables market.”
Pulse will supply its NX2 digital platform to acquire a range of structural high measurements that include bending and torsional strain, inclination, displacement and acceleration in components of jacket legs, nodes and wind turbine generator towers.
The technology supplied by the company also includes providing corrosion and anode monitoring equipment to provide Ørsted with a full package of digital measurement data.
Deepwater, another Acteon Group company, is working with Pulse to provide anode monitoring systems.
