Romax InSight assists utility giant in securing a confident post warranty future for Greater Gabbard offshore wind farm

SSE looked to Romax Technology as the experts to provide their vibration condition monitoring service using Romax InSight’s Fleet MonitorTM to review its turbines as they leave warranty.

This can be a costly time for operators as they are liable for any undiscovered failures and the associated financial risks. As part of the End of Warranty process SSE needed a strong specialist partner to support them in their transition to in-house O&M. Romax Technology were able to provide a solution through a combination of a thorough understanding of the turbines derived from the monitoring service and the engineering expertise applied to the drivetrain inspections and reporting; that also crucially, delivered a reduced scope end of warranty on time and to budget.

By using the Romax Solution SSE now have a condition monitoring service which gives:

-          advanced warning of major component failures allowing them to plan well in advance for jack up campaigns.

-          Increased inspection efficiency and reduced reporting time using Romax InSights FieldPro

-          A user-friendly and powerful knowledge transfer tool, Fleet MonitorTM is a crucial decision making tool that allows users to manage risk.
