Gastops, announced that Boralex has achieved a significant milestone in its geared wind turbine upgrade program with the installation of its 350th MetalSCAN Oil Debris Monitoring (ODM) sensor.
 

As a global wind energy producer and long-time Gastops partner, Boralex considers asset management optimization as a key factor of its performance.

"Boralex is a market leader in implementing new innovative technologies like MetalSCAN. They have been a valued partner and close collaborator of Gastops' for many years."  said Cedric Ouellet, Director of Energy & Industrial at Gastops.

"The Condition Monitoring System (CMS) is a critical element in the management strategy of our wind assets, helping us reduce our operating costs, increase the reliability and predictability of our energy production, and eventually meet our commitment to our customers," said Giannino Martin, Operational Excellence Deputy Director for Boralex. "Boralex relies on the proven performance of MetalSCAN ODM technology from Gastops as an integral part of our CMS for all of our wind turbines installed in France and equipped with gearboxes in order to optimize the performance of our assets."

In addition to its geared wind turbine upgrade program, Boralex has specified Gastops' new MS3500 ODM sensor series for all new wind energy projects in France including geared turbines.

The MS3500 gives the company remote connectivity to real-time condition monitoring data and the earliest reliable detection of critical component damage available on the market today.

"MetalSCAN is a simple, intuitive, reliable and extremely scalable condition monitoring technology for geared wind turbines. It allows us to obtain crucial information to identify anomalies and complete the picture to understand the health of our fleet and unambiguously determine the remaining useful life of our assets," said Jérôme Gardyn, CMS Analyst at Boralex. "We are extremely excited about the new features, capabilities and lower price point introduced with the MS3500 series."
