Efficient ice detection brings reliability and safety
Icy weather conditions impede wind turbine service reliability, as ice can easily form on the rotor blades. The phenomenon is common in northern coastal regions. Ice reduces the productive capacity of wind turbines considerably and burdens their construction, which leads to an increased need for expensive and time-consuming maintenance. Equipping wind turbines with ice detectors can significantly reduce security risks, and strain caused by ice formation. Other applications are meteorological stations and airports.
