Upwind Blog

I joined the Wind Industry in 2010 and quickly got accustomed to the divisions of a fiercely competitive services after-market.  Are you an OEM, ISP or Self-Performer? Are you a hybrid combination of owner and ISP?  All claiming to be the best at delivering wind turbine services for improved asset performance and customer value.

Clipper VG Case Study

UpWind’s Vortex Generator (VG) solution has been installed on thousands of turbine blades and proven a positive AEP increase on several turbine technologies. It is important to prove the upgrade solution on each turbine technology and blade type to give owner’s a clear picture of expected production (AEP) increase.

The spinner anemometer (iSpin) is a proven way to identify yaw-misalignment (DNV-GL) and measure power curves (IEC Standards). While it may be a simple idea, to measure the wind speed and direction from in front of the rotor, many people have submitted questions regarding the technology. Here are the top questions submitted, with responses from Karl Fatrdla of ROMO Wind. If you missed the webinar, you can watch the recording for an in depth discussion of the iSpin technology.
