Read case study

Because of the tight margins in wind energy, evolving turbine designs, and the offshore trend, it is more important than ever to reduce operating costs. Condition-based maintenance systems help decrease unscheduled outages and optimize machine performance while reducing maintenance and repair costs. NI hardware and software solutions are deployed around the globe in remote wind turbine monitoring and factory acceptance test systems.
