Manor Renewables deploys 18 iRAMS on offshore generators to reduce operating costs
iRAMS is a ground breaking remote fixed and mobile asset monitoring system that combines telematics, remote diagnostics and anomaly alerts combined with remote asset control via satellite and GSM.
A leading company in Renewables, Manor Renewable Energy provide innovative engineering solutions for example the new “Generator Temporary Power Pods” specifically designed for the renewables sector.
Manor Renewables recently installed 18 iRAMS monitoring systems onto their new range of Generator Temporary Power Pods. These Pods were deployed on wind turbines in the North Sea operating outside GSM range and with the purpose of reducing the number of unplanned engineering maintenance visits which expenses can exceed $10,000 USD a day. In addition alerts from iRAMS on the Pods fuel levels was used for optimising vessel refueling schedules ensuring all generators had sufficient fuel even during bad weather.
David Burrows Technical Sales Engineer commented, ‘Having live diagnostic data on the generator status shore side in real time certainly helps to give a clearer picture of the genset status before deciding to deploy engineering staff.
This combined with the iRAMS anomaly and fuel level alerts with the benefits of the visual fuel levels overview displaying the physical location on a MAP with wind farm overlays will greatly help with logistics planning and reducing costs for vessel refueling schedules.
