29 September 2016: iSpin Guardian approach provides transparency in wind farm performance monitoring
ROMO Wind’s iSpin Guardian approach allows wind farm operators to monitor and actively manage the performance of every wind turbine in a wind farm at any time during its lifetime, independent of site complexity. The iSpin Guardian approach, which uses patented spinner anemometer technology, allows operators to compare the performance of individual turbines in a wind farm for the very first time. ECN (Energy research Centre of the Netherlands) has evaluated the approach.
22 September 2016: Thüle wind farm: 3% more production through wind measurement at the spinner – iSpin technology detects yaw misalignment
The patented iSpin wind measurement technology has been installed on two of the Vestas V80 turbines in Energiekontor’s company-owned Thüle wind farm, enabling wind measurement directly at the spinner. The result of the measurements: both turbines were affected by yaw misalignment of 8 degrees, and after correction on average 3.2 percent more production could be achieved. Now the wind farm operator plans to equip further turbines with the iSpin system.
24 May 2016: Vattenfall and ROMO Wind publish performance data verifying that iSpin technology accurately measures wind farm performance
Danish-Swiss wind turbine optimiser ROMO Wind together with Vattenfall carried out a performance measurement project at Nørrekær Enge wind farm in Denmark using 13 Siemens 2.3 MW turbines. The goal was to compare the power curve measurement results of an IEC-compliant met mast, a nacelle LiDAR, and the iSpin spinner anemometer. The results show that only the iSpin technology enables reliable and replicable wind turbine performance measurements on all turbines in the wind farm. Within a confidence interval of 95%, the comparable wind turbines were observed to be operating within only 0.3% of AEP to each other and the power curve verified reference turbine. The raw measurement data is available in an online data sharing portal and interested experts are invited to analyse and confirm all data and results.
03 February 2016: Spinner anemometer technology can now be used to measure power curves in accordance with IEC standards
The spinner anemometer technology of Danish-Swiss wind turbine optimiser ROMO Wind can be used to cost-effectively measure the power curve of every single turbine in a wind farm. This has now been confirmed by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), which has published a new clarification sheet. The document describes the calibration procedure for norm-compliant use of the precise patented measuring technique directly at the spinner of a wind turbine.
17 November 2015: BaxEnergy and ROMO Wind start cooperation – new wind data joint service available for wind farm operators
BaxEnergy, a leading provider of software for controlling, monitoring and analysing data from renewable energy power plants, and ROMO Wind, provider of the patented iSpin spinner anemometer technology, are now offering their combined services. The bundled services allow customers to benefit from the exact wind data delivered by ROMO Wind’s measurement technology iSpin, which measures the wind in front of the rotor.
12 November 2015: ROMO Wind starts operations in France
The Danish-Swiss wind turbine optimiser ROMO Wind is extending its business activities to France. Local contact and support regarding the company’s innovative spinner anemometer technology iSpin is now also available for wind farm operators in France.
5 October 2015: UpWind and ROMO Wind start strategic partnership for American market
UpWind Solutions, Inc., North America’s leading independent full service provider for the wind industry, and ROMO Wind, a Danish-Swiss wind turbine optimizer, have recently entered into a strategic relationship. With the partnership, ROMO Wind’s patented iSpin technology, which measures the wind in front of the rotor, will be available for customers in the USA, Canada and Mexico for the first time.
17 September 2015: The Danish Minister of Foreign Affairs watched demonstration of iSpin technology at HUSUM Wind
The Danish-Swiss wind turbine optimiser ROMO Wind is presenting its patented iSpin technology for measuring wind in front of the rotor at this year’s HUSUM Wind trade fair. Today, Danish Minister of Foreign Affairs Kristian Jensen visited the stand. He got to know more about the innovative measuring method and watched a demonstration of the iSpin functions.
14 September 2015: iSpin achieves increase in energy yield of 7.7 percent at the Sustrum/Renkenberge wind park
The Danish-Swiss wind energy optimiser ROMO Wind installed its patented wind measurement technology iSpin, which measures wind directly at the spinner, in 16 Nordtank NTK 1500/64/80 turbines in the Sustrum/Renkenberge wind park (northern Emsland). The results of the measurements: the yaw misalignments in the turbines were between 11.8 and 21.7 degrees. After this had been rectified, yield increased by 7.7 percent on average.
13 March 2015: DNV GL confirms: two percent higher yield when wind measured at the spinner
The spinner anemometer iSpin detected a yaw misalignment of more than four degrees in 61 per cent of 152 turbines tested. The calculated increase in yield after correction: an average of two per cent. This has been confirmed by a current study by DNV GL (previously GL Garrad Hassan).
