Cost efficiency, high levels of revenue and plant safety are the most important factors during the operation of wind turbines. BLADEcontrol® continuously records the condition of each rotor blade individually and perceives even minor changes. The risk of expensive repairs is reduced, and the economic efficiency of the entire wind energy plant increases.
In-house hardware and software development, equipment options for all installation types (1 MW onwards), and the highest-level data security.
More than 3,000 monitoring systems in place, more than 10,000 machine years of monitoring experience, installations in 25 countries and also offshore plants.
Certified by TÜV Rheinland according to ISO 9001:2015, Ice detector certified since 2008, and Condition Monitoring System certified since 2013 (DNV GL).
Optional sensors for ice detection:
As a company specialising in maintenance and service work on wind turbines, ROTORWORKS is a certified partner for the installation of the BLADEcontrol® ice detection and condition monitoring systems on various wind turbine types. Due to simple assembly steps, BLADEcontrol® can be installed or optionally retrofitted onto existing wind turbines in no time at all. An installation-specific system adaptation can be performed easily and at any time based on the close, successful collaboration with Weidmüller.
Condition monitoring plays an important role in every industry. Especially in the wind sector, the continuous monitoring and analyses of data is a crucial success factor. Specific installation concepts and the optimal use of systems within the wind plants require a reliable and futureproof solutions.

"Thanks to the permanent monitoring with the BLADEcontrol® Condition Monitoring System and based on the long-standing experience gained at roughly 200 of our offshore installations, we have already been able to enjoy multiple benefits from the measured data and data analysis, and have increased our system availability. We have enjoyed a trust-based partnership with the Dresden-based company since 2006, and we look forward to continuing our successful collaboration in the future"
"As an operator, we, wpd windmanager GmbH & Co. KG from Bremen, are responsible for about 2,000 wind turbines worldwide. Our most important tasks in the management of wind farms are the optimisation of plant operation and the reduction of downtime. By using the BLADEcontrol® ice detector, we ensure safe operation of our wind turbines - even in the cold season. When implementing the system, Weidmüller Monitoring Systems GmbH is a trustful and competent partner, who meets our demands and requests very individually and thus supports us to continue optimising our wind farms."
"The BLADEcontrol® ice detection system saves a significant amount of working time and generates considerable cost reductions to VENSYS Energy AG and our customers. We got rid of many telephone calls and trips to the wind farms that were necessary when using conventional ice sensors on the nacelle roof. Just as the yield of the installations has increased, the safety of the turbines has also improved as a result of the direct measurement of ice build-up on the rotor blades. Weidmüller Monitoring Systems GmbH has also demonstrated its interest in other areas too, such as the research and development of potential new uses for the systems, and is a reliable partner for us. We will of course continue to build on this collaboration in the future."
