Real-time maintenance data. Real-time advantages. Castrol and ONYX InSight have combined to offer Castrol SmartSensor, to provide real-time condition-based oil and machine health monitoring to minimize downtime and improve LCOE.
Wind power is gathering strength.
Today it supplies 5% of our global energy, generated by about 400,000 turbines around the world.
By 2050, it’s estimated demand will grow by 600% and millions of new on- and offshore turbines worldwide could generate 30% of all energy.
Castrol is chosen by many of the leading turbine manufacturers for first fill when their machines first go out to market and we’re the trusted supplier for thousands of wind farms, not just during the warranty period, but for the entire working life of their assets. At Castrol our deep understanding of the wind industry has made us realize that three main interconnected issues are critical to success.
360 Solutions. 360 Success.
Castrol’s three-pronged approach.
At Castrol, our suite of solutions, technology, partners and investments are all engineered to deliver against these three challenges.
Castrol has partnered with ONYX InSight, a world-leader in predictive analytics for industrial businesses, to provide real-time condition-based oil and machine health monitoring to minimize downtime and improve LCOE.
Our oil condition monitoring service detects changes in oil and equipment condition as they occur, and combining this information with vibration data can help you identify and understand faults earlier. This means you can:
● Reduce costs
● Minimize downtime
● Extend gear life
● Maintain optimum performance of your turbines, especially as they exit warranty
Castrol SmartSensor utilizes data from inline oil condition, particle and vibration sensors. Each of these sensors give you valuable insights on their own, but when combined together they provide an enhanced understanding of your oil and turbine health.
This is how our integrated expertise is redefining the predictive maintenance cycle for wind businesses like yours; providing insight on most efficient preventative measures that are needed to be taken to keep your turbines in optimum condition and total confidence in the decisions you make.
Castrol SmartSensor, powered by ONYX InSight’s ecoCMS solution, has been designed to offer 24/7, inline condition monitoring through the latest digital technology, to give your business real-time information and trending analytics about each turbine in your fleet
