Wind turbines convert wind energy to electrical energy for distribution. Conventional horizontal axis turbines can be divided into three components.
Turbine monitoring and diagnostics
Due to our SCADA and condition base monitoring of wind turbines is usually performed using several accelerometers and strain gages attached to the nacelle to monitor the gearbox and equipments.

Wind turbines


SDL energy and partners has been supplying technical services to the wind energy sector for over fifteen years. With capacities of 1.0 to 6.0 MW, more than one thousand wind turbines erected and commissioned throughout Europe are testimony to our wide-ranging experience – both on- and offshore.




Wind turbines are manufactured in a wide range of vertical and horizontal axis. The smallest turbines are used for applications such as battery charging for auxiliary power for boats or caravans or to power traffic warning signs. Larger turbines can be used for making contributions to a domestic power supply while selling unused power back to the utility supplier via the electrical grid.  Arrays of large turbines, known as wind farms, are becoming an increasingly important source of intermittent renewable energy and are used by many countries as part of a strategy to reduce their reliance on fossil fuels. One assessment claimed that, as of 2009, wind had the “lowest relative greenhouse gas emissions, the least water consumption demands and… the most favourable social impacts” compared to photovoltaic, hydro, geothermal, coal and gas.
