GyroMetric & wind power

GyroMetric systems are developing tailored monitoring solutions for wind turbines, one of the fastest growing sectors in the low carbon economy. Gearbox failures are common and the cause of the largest cost of wind turbine failure. Access and maintenance of offshore or remote wind farms is expensive so the use of our advanced systems to schedule maintenance and reduce gearbox breakdowns will bring obvious benefits. Remote monitoring is also of enormous benefit.

GyroMetric have installed a comprehensive monitoring system on a test Wind Turbine.

Remote Monitored Systems (LON:RMS) is focused on the continued development of the Company’s ‘Survey & Inspection’ business. RMS also has a majority interest in GyroMetric Systems Limited, which develops and manufactures digital monitoring and safeguarding systems for rotating shafts.
