Fibersail is a condition monitoring system for Wind Turbine blades powered by fiber optic shape sensing technology to measure critical structures as blades in a precise and remote way. We believe that in the future, structures will be smart enough to understand their condition and be able to prevent failures and improve efficiency automatically, and we also believe that measuring the shape of the structures should be the way to achieve it.
By knowing the continuous shape of a blade, WT operators will be able to improve performance, increase availability, prevent failures, reduce maintenance costs, and extend the lifetime of it.
To understand the behavior of blades in real environment will lead R&D to more efficient blades and help to reduce LCOE (levelized cost of energy) of Wind Energy
