Bachmann Monitoring GmbH's core expertise is measuring and analysing vibrations, enabling it to closely monitor onshore and offshore wind turbines. The monitoring specialist – certified by Germanischer Lloyd and based at the technology hub of Jena/Rudolstadt in Germany since 1998 – has been a subsidiary of Austrian company Bachmann electronic GmbH based in Feldkirch since 2011.
Intelligent solutions – The certified web-based CM teleservice (remote monitoring) is the key to efficiently monitoring decentralised turbines. Early identification and pinpointing of weak points ensures the reliable operation of turbines and increases yields on a sustainable basis. Condition-based maintenance based on structure-borne sound can be complemented by diagnostic functions, such as rotor blade and structural monitoring, as well as the drafting of expert vibration reports for the wind industry.
In addition to condition monitoring solutions (CMS) integrated into control systems, Bachmann also offers standalone CMS. These CM systems also enable reliable monitoring of main bearings, for example.
The "Omega Guard" was additionally certified by Germanischer Lloyd in 2012 as a fully control-integrated CMS – a world first. This certification is unique in the market to date. All Bachmann CMS meet international standards such as IEC 61400-25-6. The compatibility of the information models and information exchange is always guaranteed and it is possible to incorporate CMS extensively into existing network structures and control systems.
International – Among approx. 6,000 equipped wind turbines, Bachmann currently monitors 5,000 onshore and offshore turbines worldwide. Its portfolio encompasses 25 different wind turbine manufacturers of approx. 79 different types ranging from 600 kW to 8 MW.
