Comments from Reliability Engineer:
“The amount of wear metals has decreased significantly! Since we have installed the unit, we haven’t had to change the oil at all since it has been so clean. Typically it has oxidized by now and is black. We haven’t seen any of that yet. So far we are very pleased with the results.”

The rotor of a WTG will easily top 200 million revolutions in 20 years. Wear is enormous. Not least to the gearbox where numerous particles are released from the components to the oil. But if you monitor the size and number of these particles, you can forecast serious problems, optimise operation and schedule maintenance well in advance.
