Our new product leaflet "Wind turbine gearbox condition assessment" is now online!

Monitoring the condition of wind turbine gearboxes is essential to guarantee machine integrity. A wind turbine gearbox is considered to be a non fail-safe component whose failure may in turn lead to failure of other major parts of the turbine. For this reason, and since they operate under severe mechanical stress conditions, gearboxes need regular thorough attention.

Fully equipped to provide onsite inspection and remote wind turbine monitoring, ENGIE Laborelec is your ideal partner for gearbox condition assessment, wherever you are in the world.

Our new product leaflet "Nacelle-based LIDAR: Yaw misalignment correction" is now online!

Yaw misalignment correction can increase annual energy production by up to 5%

Nacelle-based LIDAR is the perfect way to accurately measure turbine yaw performance. Every wind turbine operator is looking to maximize revenues from their wind turbines. Energy losses due to yaw misalignment can be significant, but effective correction will boost output.

Laborelec owns and operates a fleet of nacelle-based LIDARs ready for deployment in static yaw correction campaigns.

The truth behind wind power curves

Supplier data on wind turbine performance are not always accurate. Consequently, there might be untapped potential for improving performance, as well as maintenance. Laborelec is able to identify such improvement opportunities thanks to its researchers having found a more accurate way to measure the nacelle wind speed.
