DOCC-OFF PROJECT AIMS TO REDUCE THE IMPACT OF SOME HYDRAULIC PITCH SYSTEM FAILURE MODES ON THE WIND TURBINE´S DESIGN LOAD CASES
The main challenge of DOCC-OFF will be to validate the sensors, remote monitoring systems and big data analytics tools that will allow to obtain data from the pitch system, which is the system used to adjust the blades in wind turbines by rotating them so that they use the right fraction of the available wind energy to get the most power output, meanwhile ensuring the turbine does not exceed its maximum rotational speed
This project pursues to use the knowledge extracted from the operational data to improve the design of the hydraulic pitch system, increasing its reliability and reducing the impact on the wind turbine´s design load cases.

XABET new partner of the DOCC-OFF project
22 July 2020
The company XABET, whose mission is the development of digital platforms for data exploitation and decision making tools to improve asset performance, has joined as a new partner in the European project DOCC-OFF (Scaling-up Digitalization Of Critical Components in Offshore wind turbines), led by the Basque Energy Cluster. XABET will undertake tasks from the work package of Digital technologies specification and development, as well as the validation of the results obtained during the testing phase of the project.
How digitalization can help the wind industry remain resilient during COVID-19 pandemic
