Bachmann Monitoring GmbH
Bachmann Monitoring GmbH develops, produces and markets innovative measurement systems and systematic solutions for the permanent condition based maintenance of wind turbines. This comprehensive service concept using manufacturer integrated or stand-alone condition monitoring systems substantially increases the reliability and profitability of the wind turbine.
The main area of business for Bachmann Monitoring GmbH is the measurement and online analysis of vibrations enabling the reliable monitoring of the majority of the drive-train components of onshore and offshore wind turbines. The remote condition monitoring via Weblog forms the basis of the efficient monitoring of decentralised plant equipment. The early recognition and localisation of possible weak points gives our customers the optimum availability of their plant equipment and increased long term profitability. The structure-borne sound based condition monitoring is complemented by diagnostic functions for imbalances, rotor blades and structural component monitoring. The range of services offered also includes the compiling of vibration reports.
Wind turbines with Bachmann control systems have the option of adding a comprehensive integrated “Omega Guard” condition monitoring system, which is also certified by “Germanischer Lloyd”. This solution offers significant cost and technological advantages when compared to the conventional stand-alone CM systems.
Bachmann Monitoring offers certified Condition Monitoring Systems (CMS) for early fault detection in the drive train of wind turbines.
Bachmann currently monitor about 2000 wind turbines worldwide.
The portfolio covers 21 different wind turbine manufacturers with 50 different versions ranging from 600 kW to 5 MW. The monitoring experts located in the technological centre Jena / Rudolstadt for more than 15 years and certified by “Germanisher Lloyd” became part of the Bachmann electronic GmbH of Feldkirch, Austria in 2010. The location in Rudolstadt is being expanded into a worldwide centre of excellence for diagnosis of decentralised machinery and plant equipment, additionally remote centres staffed by experts in Asia and America are planned.
