General – sensors
4Subsea has launched a new autonomous sensor which measures the dynamic strain of offshore wind turbines with high resolution and accuracy.
The sensor will reduce cost of operations and maximise life of offshore wind turbines.
Unlike regular strain gage installations, 4Subsea’s Smart Monitoring Sensor (SMS) Strain is an autonomous, retrofittable sensor that can be installed without special requirements such as the use of specialised technicians, equipment, or a clean environment.
In addition, the technology can easily be installed by hand on the turbine tower or using divers or ROV for subsea installation, for instance, on the substructure.
