Pulse Structural Monitoring, an Acteon company, has signed its first contract for the provision of digital structural monitoring and insight services and equipment on an offshore wind farm.
The contract, awarded by Ørsted, will see Pulse provide the design, fabrication, yard installation and commissioning of its monitoring instrumentation on three wind turbine foundations to be installed at the Greater Changhua offshore Taiwan.
“Being one of Ørsted’s important partners on the Greater Changhua wind farms is a major milestone for Pulse Structural Monitoring. As a company, we have over 20 years’ experience in our core offshore markets and have completed some smaller renewables projects, but this contract recognizes that we have achieved a major and strategic transfer of skills and knowledge to the offshore wind and renewables market. We look forward to working with Ørsted, providing data and insight on this and future developments.”Brian Taylor, head of Sales at Pulse.
Pulse will supply its NX2 digital platform for acquiring a range of measurements that include bending and torsional strain, inclination, displacement and acceleration in key components of the jacket legs, nodes and wind turbine generator towers.
This Acteon integrated solution will also include the provision of corrosion and anode monitoring equipment to provide Ørsted with the full package of digital measurement data required.
Deepwater, another Acteon Group company, is working with Pulse to provide anode monitoring systems.
