Tidal turbine blade monitoring

Customer need

Tidal turbines are subject to very high loads generated by marine currents, particularly at the level of the blades.

By monitoring these blades, we can optimize their orientation to limit loads while maintaining optimum electricity production.



SCAIME Solution

In environments with strong electromagnetic interferences, SCAIME fiber optic sensors enable precise, reliable measurement of blade bending moments.
The sensors are distributed over several sections of the blades. Their low weight and compactness make them particularly unobtrusive.
