Brüel & Kjær Vibro’s DDAU family of wind turbine monitoring units reaches 30,000 milestone

Brüel & Kjær Vibro one of the leading worldwide independent suppliers of condition monitoring solutions for rotating machinery, has reached the milestone of 30,000 next-generation  DDAU (Diagnostic Data Acquisition Unit) condition monitoring platforms sold to the wind turbine generator market.

Brüel & Kjær Vibro has been actively engaged in providing condition monitoring solutions for wind turbine generators since 2003, when the global wind power market was still in its infancy. Today, the company plays a leading role in reducing wind turbine life cycle costs and unplanned downtime, delivering value to wind turbine operators, owners and manufacturers across the globe.

DDAU3, the newest family member of the DDAU condition monitoring platforms, was designed with the newest technology to meet the most demanding condition monitoring and diagnostic challenges of today and for many years to come. It is helping thousands of owners and operators world-wide in reducing levelized cost of energy and the overall life-cycle costs of wind turbines, while increasing reliability and availability. This is made possible by unique and advanced fault detection and diagnostic descriptors, easy system integration, built-in cyber security and minimal IT requirements.

The 30,000 milestone is also confirmation of the highly successful condition monitoring solution offered by Brüel & Kjær Vibro, based upon the DDAU hardware, companion VibroSuite software, and a network of remote monitoring surveillance and diagnostic centers strategically situated in North America, Europe, and Asia. These renowned centers are staffed by highly experienced engineers that provide actionable information service with long-lead time to maintenance.

Christian Klostermeier, Head of Business Unit Wind at Brüel & Kjær Vibro, said, “As pioneers in monitoring wind turbines with 20 years of condition monitoring experience, Brüel & Kjær Vibro has a deep understanding of the importance of machine healthcare awareness. This 30,000 sales unit milestone underscores Brüel & Kjær Vibro’s growing position as a key player in the wind turbine condition monitoring market.”
